A study conducted by the University of Sydney has confirmed that vaccination against the deadly Hendra virus does not affect the performance of racing horses.

Equine Veterinarians Australia is urging horse owners to vaccinate their horses against the deadly Hendra virus following three new confirmed cases in just four weeks.

For Thoroughbred racehorses, repetitive stress injuries can lead to serious and career-ending fractures.


Equine Veterinarians Australia (EVA) is a special interest group of the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and the premier provider of continuing professional development for equine veterinarians in Australia.

With an emphasis on providing the support members need to remain at the forefront of equine veterinary medicine, EVA also represents the interests of members to governments and equine industry groups.

EVA maintains strong links with both equine organisations and horse owners. An important role for EVA is providing advice and information to the people who care for horses to ensure that Australian horses enjoy the best possible health and welfare.

You must be a member of the AVA to join, and you can add EVA to your membership online. You can contact EVA on 02 9431 5080 or admin@eva.org.au.
