What is the OAHN equine network?
The Ontario Animal Health Network (OAHN) is a collaborative animal health network comprised of species-specific expert networks. Business Objectives of OAHN are to:
- Provide a communications hub/platform for topics concerning animal health and welfare issues within Ontario;
- Identify existing or emerging animal health and welfare issues and trends; and
- Contribute expertise to prevention, detection and timely response activities.
Participants of the OAHN equine network include the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), University of Guelph’s Animal Health Laboratory, the Ontario Veterinary College, and private veterinarians. Members meet quarterly to discuss equine disease and health issues to improve the health of Ontario’s horses.
