Horses residing in the United States are susceptible to a variety of diseases spread by insects, including mosquitos, ticks and flies. Rapid diagnosis and treatment of these diseases are key to the welfare of our horses. This Cornell Equine Seminar presentation will focus on teaching horse owners to recognize the clinical signs of common insect-borne diseases seen in the Northeastern United States, along with how each disease is diagnosed, treated and prevented.
