56th Annual Ocala Equine Conference
Although Borrelia burgdorferi infection is common in horses living in Lyme endemic areas, the true prevalence of Lyme disease in horses remains controversial. Syndromes attributed to Lyme disease in horses include lameness, stiffness, neuroborreliosis, uveitis and cutaneous pseudolymphoma. Diagnosis is made through documentation of exposure, appropriate clinical signs and ruling out other potential etiologies. This lecture will provide an up-to-date review of current recommendations for the diagnosis, management and prevention of Lyme disease in equine patients.
