WVC 91st Annual Conference
This program, Lone Star Ticks: An Expanding Threat to Pets and Humans, is a live continuing education presentation targeted towards a veterinary technician audience. As such, it is a part of Boehringer Ingelheim's Vet Tech Champion (TC) program. The goal of the TC program is to empower veterinary technicians in speaking to dog owners specifically about the lone star tick. By pairing technical information on the disease state with communication tools and techniques, veterinary technicians will leave this presentation feeling empowered to educate pet owners on how to keep dogs safe from tick borne diseases.
