ITBF webinars: Equine Grass Sickness

Equine Grass Sickness (EGS) is a devastating disease with an 80% fatality rate that can occur anywhere in temperate areas of the world where equids are kept.

In these two ITBF webinars, Dr Richard Newton MRCVS, MSc, PhD and FRCVS Director of Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance, Equine Infectious Disease Surveillance and Dr Beth Wells PhD, Principal Research Scientist, Moredun Research Institute, discuss the ongoing challenge of EGS, and the EGS Biobank and Research Project.

They explore what has been learnt to date on the disease and explain how we can aid critical research progress, leading to a worldwide understanding of the triggers and causes of the disease – and the ultimate end goal of saving and protecting equine lives in the future.
