EquiManagement published the Disease Du Jour podcast, “Ep. 126: Lyme Disease with Dr. Toby Pinn-Woodcock.” In this podcast, Dr. Pinn-Woodcock, DVM, DACVIM, provides a broad overview of Lyme disease in equines. She explains that although Lyme disease case reports in horses began to emerge in the late 1990s, the knowledge about impacts on horses has grown over the past 20 years. She states that in areas endemic for blacklegged ticks, at least 60% of horses show antibodies for exposure to Borrelia.
Dr. Pinn-Woodcock, further discusses the controversy of clinical signs in horses, and explains the limitations and complications of testing, treatment, and vaccination for horses.
