Monthly Meeting: Lyme Disease – What is Happening in Ontario?

May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This talk will review the ticks that can be found on dogs and people in Ontario, and how to identify the tick responsible for Lyme disease. Data will be presented that indicate how the risk of Lyme disease is changing across Ontario and what will likely happen in the future. Strategies to reduce the risk of infection in both dogs and people will also be discussed.

Andrew Peregrine obtained his DVM and PhD from the University of Glasgow, Scotland. He then worked for 9 years at the International Laboratory for Research on Animal Diseases, Nairobi, Kenya, where he carried out research to improve control of tropical parasites of cattle.  Since 1997 he has been an associate professor in clinical parasitology at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, where he teaches DVM students. In addition, his research interests currently include emerging parasite infections of companion animals and people, and sustainable control of parasites in sheep. He is a diplomate of the European Veterinary Parasitology College and the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists.
