Strangles Conference Will Be Held in Scotalnd

On May 28th, The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland will host a meeting of veterinary specialists from all over the world to discuss recent scientific advances in the development of preventative measures for Strangles.

Strangles is the most commonly diagnosed infectious disease of horses worldwide. However, the end may be in sight, as Great Britain’s Animal Health Trust has teamed up with the British Horse Society to develop a blood test and vaccine, to test for and prevent the disease.
