|Pet Care Seminar: Can Pets and People Get the Same Infections?|
(March 12, 2012 Stillwater, OK) – “Tick-borne diseases shared by pets and people” is the topic of the next Pet Care Seminar sponsored by Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences on Tuesday, April 3, at 7 p.m.
“Both pets and people are commonly bitten by ticks in Oklahoma,” says Susan Little, DVM. “Come learn about the risks of tick-borne infections in pets, what those infections may be telling us about human disease risk, and different ways we can protect ourselves and our pets from ticks.”
Dr. Little earned her DVM degree from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech and her PhD in veterinary parasitology from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Microbiology, an executive board member of the Companion Animal Parasite Council and past-President of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists.
