Equine Infectious Disease, especially Streptococcus equi equi (Strangles), Vaccination
20 years of equine clinical practice including equine internal medicine residency training (UCDAVIS) from 2001-2004 and sports medicine/lameness training with the PennVet NBC Sports Medicine Department 2004-2005. Currently I practice all aspects of equine clinical practice including internal medicine, infectious disease, lameness, and herd health.
