The aims of this survey are to determine the occurrence of respiratory disease and identify risk factors for the development of respiratory disease in horses in Australia.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Participants completing the survey have the choice to remain anonymous. Participants who wish to be entered into the prize draw will be asked for their contact details at the end of the survey. All participants entering the prize draw stand a chance to win a first prize of a $100 Kentucky Equine Research (KER) voucher, 2nd through 5th prize of a $50 KER voucher. The next 50 draws will receive a voucher for their choice of a bag of Calm Performer or Complete Performer from Barastoc Horse Feeds.

This survey will provide critical information to help improve the health and welfare of Australian Horses. Members of the Australian horse community are being invited to participate. Knowledge of the horse’s management, including housing and feeding practices as well as general health over the last 12 months is essential.

This study is being conducted by Miss Jewel Azaria Tan (Animal Science Honours student, The University of Adelaide), Dr Surita du Preez (Equine Internal Medicine, The University of Adelaide), Dr Samantha Franklin (Equine Sports Medicine, The University of Adelaide) and Dr Jackie Cardwell (Epidemiology, The Royal Veterinary College, UK).
