About the Organization
The WEAS brings together the leading equine airway researchers from around the world to present the latest knowledge and research and exchange experiences and information on diagnosing and treating (both medically and surgically) respiratory diseases in horses. About 100 participants from 23 countries attended WEAS 2017, where researchers presented more than 70 oral and poster abstracts.
Research on equine airway issues is extremely important, as almost all horses suffer from a respiratory tract disorder at some point in their lives. These can include upper respiratory tract disorders, such as laryngeal neuropathy, and lower airway issues, such as those that result in a chronic cough.
