Equine Infectious Diseases Conference Held in Argentina
More than 400 attendees from 35 countries convened at the 10th International Equine Infectious Diseases Conference (IEIDC X) April 4-8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to present and discuss the latest topics and trends of infectious diseases in all species of equids.

Held every four years in a different country, the conference focuses on emerging, re-emerging, and other frequently encountered infectious diseases that affect equine populations throughout the world.

The conference kicked off with a Practitioners’ Day, sponsored by the American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation, and was followed by a second Practitioners’ Day session and the beginning of the “full conference” with the first day of oral abstract presentations. Oral and poster presentations focused on 10 topics: biosecurity, diagnostics, emerging and re-emerging diseases, gastrointestinal, neurological, other system diseases, parasitology, reproduction, respiratory, and working equids. There was also a special session on the international movement of horses, which was chaired by Peter Timoney, MVB, MS, PhD, FRCVS, Frederick Van Lennep Chair in equine veterinary medicine at the University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center.

The Practitioners’ Day sessions offered a broad overview and featured talks about all the topics. A common theme throughout the presentations was that while there is a lot known in the realm of infectious diseases research, there is a lot more unknown and more studies are needed moving forward. Below is a recap of some of the selected presentations from the Practitioners’ Day sessions
