Researchers In The Spotlight

UF scientists study causes, possible treatments for equine anhidrosis

UF College of Veterinary Medicine veterinarians and scientists hope research will shed light on better ways of treating equine anhidrosis, a condition that impairs a horse’s ability to sweat. Common in the Southeastern United States, the condition causes horses to overheat, causing numerous negative health effects. UF’s team is investigating possible genetic causes of equine anhidrosis as well as the efficacy of various treatment options.

As part of both the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Academic Health Center, Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to advancing animal, human and environmental health through teaching, research, extension and patient care.
