Equine Plasma and Serum Products
Important notice from the AAEP on the use of equine plasma and serum products
The American Association of Equine Practitioners has released a white paper to help practitioners make informed decisions regarding the use of equine plasma and serum products.

The document was developed by the AAEP's Biological and Therapeutic Agents Committee to reduce confusion among practitioners when considering the therapeutic claims, efficacy, safety and regulatory oversight of these products.
