Hemorrhagic tracheitis syndrome has been progressing east to west across Canada for a period of years and has now reached the US. Practitioners and diagnosticians in Canada and the US will provide insight into the syndrome’s progression during a webinar sponsored by the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) and American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV). Scheduled for Thursday, April 2, 2020, from 10:00 to 11:30 am CT, the webinar will provide information on the syndrome, its signalments, tissues for postmortem assessment, and management.
During the webinar, which will be recorded for viewing at a later date, a case overview will be provided by veterinary practitioners. Their presentation will include management design, strategies, and interventions they have experienced. Sampling guidelines will be addressed. Additionally, a scientific design to test management options will be presented. One result of this collaboration will be additional research conducted across North America to attempt to identify an etiology.
Presenters during the April 2 webinar include Dr. Joseph Rudolphi, Rudolphi Veterinary Service Ltd., Dr. Mike Pierdon, Lancaster Swine Health Services, Dr. Alyona Michael, Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, and Dr. Josepha DeLay, Animal Health Laboratory, University of Guelph.
The webinar will be recorded and posted on the SHIC website as well.
SHIC 2020 Webinar Series
SHIC will be offering a series of webinars in 2020, following a successful webinar on porcine sapelovirus and its role in myelitis offered in October 2019. The viral myelitis webinar was recorded and is available on the SHIC website for review. The intent of the webinars in 2020 is to respond to “industry chatter” about current swine health issues. Topics and timing have not been set as the plan is to respond in a timely manner to questions and cases practitioners face, providing resources as well as other veterinarians’ discussion and experience. If you have ideas for webinars, please share those with SHIC Executive Director Dr. Paul Sundberg by emailing [email protected].
Funded by America’s pork producers to protect and enhance the health of the US swine herd, SHIC focuses its efforts on prevention, preparedness, and response. As a conduit of information and research, SHIC encourages sharing of its publications and research for the benefit of swine health. Forward, reprint, and quote SHIC material freely.
