(Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) — The Summer 2010 issue of Horse Health Lines, news publication for the Western College of Veterinary Medicine's Equine Health Research Fund, is now online and available in a reader-friendly, digitized format at http://www.ehrf.usask.ca.

• Pergolide’s Dose Strength Critical to Health: PhD student Dr. Katherine Ball shows that concentrations of pergolide are lower than expected in compounded doses.

• Dr. Claire Card: Equine Baby-maker: WCVM’s Dr. Claire Card has helped to bring many foals into the world that wouldn’t have been born without a helping hand from science.

• Putting a Prairie Spin to Deworming: A WCVM study will investigate the intestinal parasite load of horses living on the Prairies so clinicians can establish Prairie-based deworming programs.

• Young Equine Steward: Horses and equine welfare have a special place in the heart of third-year veterinary student Taryn Holtby of Marshall, Sask.
