Lexington, Ky. -- Veterinarians who specialize in the care of racehorses will answer questions on that topic during November as part of the American Association of Equine Practitioners' (AAEP) "Ask the Vet" online discussion.

Each month an AAEP-member veterinarian answers questions submitted by horse owners on a variety of health issues. In November, questions will be answered by members of AAEP's Racing Committee.

Questions about the unique veterinary needs of all breeds of racehorses -- Thoroughbred, Standardbred and Quarter Horse -- will be accepted. Questions that are not on topic will not be answered.

Horse owners can pose questions by clicking here and clicking on "Ask the Vet" in the center of the page. Each month's questions and answers are archived on the page.
