Editor: Johnny Cave Publisher: Vetlink Media Solutions In this third edition of the Equine Health Update for 2017 we include a number of articles from the Equine Veterinary Journal, which have been reproduced with kind permission of the Editor Celia Marr. The first article, "Clinical highlights from 50th Congress of the South African Equine Veterinary Association 2017" was written for EVJ by our very own Sean Miller and Keith Spargo, so very well done to them for putting that together. The second article includes some abstracts from the most recent edition of EVJ and we hope to be able to include more of those in future editions.
