About Dr. Walsh and the AHF:
Dr Walsh and his wife Diana founded the grassroots, all-volunteer, non-profit organization known as The Animal Health Foundation in the 1990s to fund laminitis research. Dr. Walsh was a full-time equine practitioner in Pacific, Missouri at that time.
Since they began, AHF has been able to donate more than $1 million directly to research on equine laminitis, primarily through small donations from horse owners who lost a horse to laminitis. Early on, the Animal Health Foundation identified Dr. Chris Pollitt and his Australian Equine Laminitis Research Unit at the University of Queensland as a primary beneficiary of support from the AHF.
After his retirement from active practice last year, Dr. Walsh traveled to Australia to conduct research with Dr. Pollitt and his team and has now returned to the USA to share what he learned there and from other AHF-funded projects around the USA.
Dr. Walsh recently received the Merial Lifetime Achievement Award at the 6th International Equine Conference on Laminitis and Diseases of the Foot. In 2012, Dr. Walsh is beginning a national tour of veterinary colleges around the world to educate students about laminitis. He is known for his straightforward, down-to-earth speaking style, has a great skill for explaining complex concepts in a meaningful way, and is a dedicated horseowner himself.
