EIA in Ireland: Managing risks of infectious diseases

Horses are continually confronted by the risk of acquiring infectious diseases from indigenous and exotic sources.  Developing a sound plan to minimize and contain the risk should be a high priority.  This seminar will help identify common goals and begin to develop a “risk guide” for the community.  The presenters will provide details on the EIA outbreak in Ireland and discuss techniques and approaches for managing infectious diseases.

Thursday, October 26, 2006 — 4:00 pm

Endometritis.

Chronic endometritis, a common cause of infertility in older Thoroughbred mares, causes significant losses to the industry and much frustration for veterinarians and farm managers.  It is likely that an inability to quickly clear inflammatory debris after breeding is the instigator of the infertility but other factors associated with aging and inflammation appear to contribute as these mares do not respond to oxytocin and intra-uterine antibiotics.  Contributing factors need to be identified so successful therapies can be developed. Presenters will discuss the economic impact of mare infertility (Karin Bosh), and the high recovery of gram negative organisms in afflicted mares and treatment protocols that have shown some success (Michelle LeBlanc).   Microbiological epidemiology of isolates from the reproductive tract will be presented by Craig Carter and David Horohov will give an overview of immunological aspects of pregnancy.
