Published on: Aug 29, 2013

Zoetis is accepting research proposals for the 2013 Horse Call grant program, which promotes excellence in veterinary economic research and education.

Zoetis will help fund one or more individuals through a grant of up to $50,000 for innovative, clinically relevant research proposals that determine the economic impact of equine encephalitic, parasitic, respiratory or other infectious diseases or the impact of preventing these diseases, according to an announcement.

Another area this grant will support is determining the economic impact of practice management business practices that emphasize prevention of equine infectious or parasitic diseases or prevention of horse-related injuries to clients, technicians or veterinarians of these practices, Zoetis added.

Applications must be submitted by Oct. 31. All applicants must be in good standing in their professional organization, and research must be conducted within the U.S. A research committee will review the applications and will notify the selected recipient or recipients by Dec. 1.
