Program Begins

Immunology Refresher: Immune System, What, When and Where?

This session will include a background on components of the equine immune system and implications on vaccination effectiveness.  Discussion will include vaccine development and application in the equine host.  Clinical cases that demonstrate the impact of immune function or compromise on vaccine effectiveness will be included.

Core Vaccine: Considerations and Application in Practice

This discussion will include AAEP vaccine guidelines involving core vaccine protocols.  The impact of these recommendations and need for veterinary oversight for regulatory disease will be discussed.

Risk-Based Vaccines: What, When and Why?

Risk-based protocols and products will be discussed.  The application and impact of improper protocols will be discussed with a case-based approach.

Vaccine Challenges with Streptococcus Equi Subsp. Equi Disease and Vaccination: When Is It Safe to Vaccinate?

Strep. equi will be discussed as a disease, the impact on the individual and herd will be discussed.  The impact of biosecurity, vaccine protocols and herd health will be discussed.  Case examples will be explored regarding vaccine effectiveness and complications.

Parasite Control Programs

An overview of currently recommended parasite control programs will be discussed.  The impact of anthelmintic resistance and alternative parasite control strategies will be discussed.
