In the projects department we are celebrating this week as we have seen the results of many years of work being published in the Equine Veterinary Journal, an international publication aimed specifically at equine vets. We carry out projects to help improve knowledge of donkey health and welfare problems, this most recent project funded by The Donkey Sanctuary has highlighted the differences in donkey feet when compared to horses.
For approximately the last twelve months we have been working with a team from several UK vet schools on a website called WikiVet. We are all very excited about the project as the website provides a free, online resource available to vets, vet students and allied professionals all over the world. We have been involved in developing the WikiDonkey pages, working alongside Barbora Stanikova (a recent vet graduate from the Royal Vet College) who has been responsible for the design and layout of the web pages.
