Indiana State Board of Animal Health Veterinary Advisory
BOAH Q4 Lunch-and-Learn Webinar: The Asian Longhorned Tick and Theileria orientalis in Cattle Mark your calendar for Wednesday, November 16 at noon (Eastern) for the next lunch-and-learn webinar from the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. The focus of this free, one-hour session will be the Asian longhorned tick (ALHT) and Theileria orientalis in cattle.
The Asian longhorned tick (also known as the bush tick) was first sighted in the United States (New Jersey) in 2017. Since then, the small, brown tick has spread to more than a dozen other states. To date, the tick has not been found in Indiana. However, veterinarians and livestock owners need to be aware of the threat and how to identify the pest. Asian longhorned ticks reproduce rapidly and can transmit a parasite, Theileria orientalis, that can kill cattle.
The webinar will focus on the ALHT, including how to identify it, where it’s been found, its life cycle and history. An overview of diseases carried by the tick will help veterinarians communicate to their clients. Presenters for the webinar are:
Eric Renshaw, DVM, Indiana State Board of Animal Health District 10 Veterinarian and OneHealth/Zoonotic Disease Director
Lee Green, Indiana Department of Health, Senior Medical Entomologist
Veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians who participate are eligible to earn one hour of continuing education credit.
Pre-registration (up to ten minutes prior to the start of the webinar) is required. After completing registration, you will receive an email with the webinar link and password (animal) to participate.
