Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus (TBEV) is still rarely diagnosed in horses but poses a significant threat to equines in specific European regions. Key facts to be explored include its prevalence in different geographical regions, the clinical signs of TBEV infection to look out for in horses, diagnostic challenges, and prevention strategies. Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of an increasingly recognized emerging threat and important aspect of equine health.
