Infectious Disease or is it Immune-Mediated?

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    One of the more common challenges for practitioners is making an accurate diagnosis and managing patients that present with clinical signs that could be attributed to an infectious, vector-borne pathogen and/or immune-mediated disease. In fact, the clinical presentations and laboratory abnormalities may be similar in patients affected with one or the other.

    In this week's Specialty Update, Dr. Elisabeth Zenger discusses the findings of a study that examined the prevalence of vector-borne pathogens in dogs with clinical and laboratory abnormalities suggestive of immune-mediated disease. Discussion also includes the Specialist's Spin and important takeaways for practitioners.
