ARTICLE: New model for identifying horses with Tick Fever.
Tick fever season is arriving and many of you in the areas surrounding Cool, Foresthill, Colfax, and Grass Valley are very familiar with this disease. We frequently see fevers and decreased appetite in horses from the foothills. Diagnosis and treatment is usually pretty easy. Our hospital completed a research project building a model to develop faster ways to reach this diagnosis. Let us know if you have any questions about this important regional disease.
