Welfare charity the Blue Cross is appealing to horse owners to take part in their online National Equine Health Survey (NEHS) in May.

This annual survey, which is run in partnership with the British Equine Veterinary Association, reveals vital information about common diseases, to enable the veterinary and equine industries to define priorities for research, training and education, as well as establishing benchmarks for equine health in the UK.
