Tick Borne Infectious Diseases In North America: Clinical and Zoonotic Implications

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Tick-transmitted organisms can induce a spectrum of disease manifestations in dogs and people that range from mild and self-limiting to fatal.  

    The diagnosis of vector-transmitted infections can be challenging, even for experienced clinicians. Also, treatments can range from relatively straight forward administration of a short term antibiotic to complicated long term treatment regimens, surgical interventions and the necessity for other adjunctive therapies.

    It is increasingly obvious that dogs can play an important role as sentinels for many vector borne infectious diseases. It is also increasingly obvious that sick or arthropod infested pets pose an unappreciated occupational risk for veterinary workers, and other individuals who work closely with animals. From a One Health perspective, veterinarians, armed with a strong knowledge of vector borne infections, can provide a unique and important public health service to society through client education and communication with other health professionals. This webinar will highlight new information regarding the clinical and zoonotic implications of tick borne infectious diseases of dogs.
