WVMA Online Learning kicks off the new year with a timely topic and a panel of animal health experts. Join the discussion moderated by the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Lab that focuses on the emergence of Atypical Canine Respiratory Disease in Wisconsin. The media has dubbed this disease “Mystery Canine Pneumonia” and often talks about a virus that is quickly spreading around the country. The WVDL will share its findings over the past several months and information from discussions at the national level. Learn more about recent anecdotal reports from around Wisconsin suggesting that many veterinarians are seeing coughing dogs that do not respond to treatment in a timely manner. Some may develop pneumonia, and there are reports of mortality.
Is this a virus? What is Atypical Canine Respiratory Disease? There is a lot to unpack. Join to hear different experiences from the wide variety of expertise and clinical experience on the nine-person panel.
