Testing can provide helpful real-time information regarding several serious tick-borne diseases—and in some cases, it can create as many questions as it answers. Understanding the use and interpretation of these tests is critical in developing a plan for your organization that makes the best use of available resources and improves animal health and welfare.
By the end of this webinar, you will develop an understanding about:
Use of point-of-care tests for screening dogs for Lyme disease, Ehrlichia spp, Anaplasma spp and heartworm
Interpretation of test results
Next steps for positive and negative results, including indications for further diagnostics and treatment
This webinar is designed for anyone involved in the delivery of veterinary care to shelter animals, including those who help determine policy or resource allocation for their organizations.
