NAVC Webinar Update on CIRD (Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex)




NAVC Webinar Update on CIRD (Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex)

The North American Veterinary Community

On Monday, October 20, 2014, Stephan (Steve) Carey, DVM, PhD, discussed ways to explore new strategies for effectively treating patients and prevent respiratory pathogens. Topics included:

- The components of the intact mechanical, innate and adaptive canine respiratory immune system
- Mechanisms by which primary respiratory pathogens such as Bordetella bronchiseptica can evade or bypass the immune system
- The role of emerging pathogens (e.g., Canine Influenza Virus, Canine Respiratory Coronavirus) in disease pathogenesis
- Scientific evidence demonstrating the important role of vaccination in disease prevention

Dr. Carey used case examples to explain how these concepts are crucial to the development of strategies to effectively treat and prevent CIRD.
