The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) was founded in 1954 by a group of 11 charter members who saw that together they could direct the focus of equine veterinary medicine.
The AAEP’s mission is to improve the health and welfare of the horse, to further the professional development of its members, and to provide resources and leadership for the benefit of the equine industry. These principles have guided the AAEP for more than six decades in the activities and services it provides.
Practical content, abundant networking opportunities and a premier entertainment destination proved an engaging combination as 7,394 veterinary professionals, students, exhibitors and guests converged on Las Vegas, Nev., Dec. 5-9, for the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ 61st Annual Convention. Convention attendance ranked behind only the 2009 edition that also was held in Las Vegas.
