Course Description: The role of ticks and their capability to transmit infectious pathogens is increasingly recognized in the veterinary medical field. Horses are not spared from the ill-effect of tick-borne diseases. Although some tick-borne diseases such as equine granulocytic anaplasmosis and equine piroplasmosis are well established, others, including equine bartonellosis and Lyme disease, have remained poorly characterized. This lecture will give a review on common and less common tick-born disease of horses.
