About This Session:
We will be joined by Dr. J. Scott Weese, Professor at Ontario Veterinary College and Director of the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses for an update on infectious disease issues. A variety of emerging, re-emerging and unusual disease events continue to threaten companion animals and shelters. This presentation will provide an overview of recent issues, including parvovirus concerns in Michigan and the potential impact of monkeypox on pets.
