Animal Health Supplier News

Bayer Animal Health is inviting veterinary professionals to take part in a global web conference on zoonotic vector-borne disease that will be held later this year.

The third annual Canine Vector-Borne Disease conference will be held on March 20th 2014 to raise awareness of parasitic diseases such as those transmitted via ticks, fleas and sand flies.

“Bayer Animal Health is hosting a web conference on zoonotic vector-borne disease on March 20th 2014.“

Two sessions will be held, with a targeted case study event for vets to be followed by a roundtable session that also involves physicians and allied and public health professionals.

Featuring an international team of global experts, the conference will raise awareness about vector-borne disease transmission and addresses the various challenges, opportunities and surveillance information available to inform public health frameworks.

Dr Norbert Mencke, director of global veterinary services for companion animals at Bayer HealthCare Animal Health, said: "This 2014 conference is set to surpass the success of past years by engaging a broader audience. In 2012 and 2013, there were over 5,000 participants from 40 different countries."

The company has gone to great lengths to combat the spread of parasite-borne diseases worldwide, sharing its insights on the matter at the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology annual meeting in Perth last year.
