Case study 3: Wobbly horse

Horses

Upon successfully completing the full EAD course, you will:

  • be reminded of your professional and legal obligations to identify and report cases of suspected EADs to government authorities and be able to identify appropriate reporting mechanisms
  • understand key response strategies and intervention options in an EAD event
  • be aware of key roles for private veterinarians in the detection, investigation, reporting and response to EAD events
  • know where to source technical resources on EADs

After completing this equine-focused case study, you should additionally feel confident in developing an appropriate differential diagnosis lists for neurological disease in horses, understand the recommended risk assessment approach in relation to personal protective equipment use in suspect EAD cases, and be familiar with the process of collecting and submitting appropriate samples for laboratory diagnosis of an infectious cause of neurological disease in horses.

This case study will take approximately 30 minutes to work through.

The development of this course was funded by the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper, the government’s plan for stronger farmers and a stronger economy.
