EHV - The Risk Has Not Gone Away
Just because EHV is no longer making equestrian news headlines, the risk hasn’t gone away. The outbreak In Valencia last year may now be slipping to the back of everyone's minds, but now is exactly the time owners should be making sure their biosecurity protocols are up to date.

We welcome Dr Richard Newton, BVSc MSc PhD FRCVS to give us his expert insight into this horrible disease and how we can protect our breeding stock. Richard is the Director of Epidemiology & Disease Surveillance for the Equine Infectious Diseases Surveillance at the University of Cambridge. He will give us an overview of this disease and what we need to think about, including codes of practice and sources of further information.

This is a horrible disease for breeders and this webinar will provide important information to help breeders avoid infection. A Q&A session at the end of the evening will provide an opportunity to have your questions answered.
