Research Interests

My research has primarily been focused in three main areas: the equine gastric ulcer syndrome, pain management in the horse, and critical care of equine neonates. My laboratory has evaluated the effectiveness of various drugs for the treatment of gastric ulcers in foals and adult horses and for pain management in adult horses. We have also evaluated how different factors (age, housing, illness) can affect the physiologic environment of the stomach in foals and adult horses. The overall goal of this work is to gain a better understanding of the equine gastric ulcer syndrome and to improve our ability to manage various types of pain in horses.
