CONTENT DESCRIPTION

Tick borne diseases in horses are preventable by taking steps to control tick infestations. Integrated tick management is the concept, as no one intervention is best for controlling ticks:  Using many tactics in parallel, including chemical treatments, pasture management, diligent grooming, and others reduce the chances of getting ticks, ticks going unnoticed and horses developing tick-borne disease.

This module will consist of an interactive presentation followed by extensive case-discussions presented by both the speaker and discussant with ample opportunity for attending veterinarians to ask questions and contribute to the discussion
