SHIC/AASV Webinar Provides Viral Myelitis Management Resources

Veterinarians receiving diagnostic test results of porcine astrovirus 3, porcine sapelovirus, or porcine teschovirus may need more information to improve management of the CNS syndrome associated with these viruses. To address these challenges, the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), in collaboration with the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV), will hold a webinar titled Disease Management of Viral Myelitis for veterinary practitioners and pork producers on December 4, 2019, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am CST.

This webinar will include a brief overview of viral myelitis as well as current diagnostic tools. Diagnosticians Dr. Bailey Arruda, Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (VDL), and Dr. Matthew Sturos, University of Minnesota VDL, will talk about their experiences with cases and ways to approach management from the perspective of scientific design. Practitioners will present management approaches they have used when they receive these diagnoses. Click here for the working agenda for the Disease Management of Viral Myelitis webinar.
