Richard B. Ford, DVM, MS Diplomate ACVIM and ACVPM (Hon), Emeritus Professor of Medicine, North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Raleigh, North Carolina This presentation centers on the “must know” issues concerned with the clinical management of the most common tick-borne diseases recognized in dogs living in the US and Canada: ehrlichiosis, Lyme borreliosis, and anaplasmosis. As the risk for tick-borne disease (dogs and humans) continues to expand geographically, understanding the scope of the threat and the critical role preventing, NOT treating, tick-borne diseases becomes increasingly important to the veterinarian, the client, and the patient. Dr. Richard Ford is Emeritus Professor of Medicine in the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University. He is Board Certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and is honorary Diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Preventative Medicine. Dr. Ford is a Past President of the North American Veterinary Conference and continues his role as a member of the scientific program committee for that Conference. He is a co-author on both the AAHA Canine Vaccine Guidelines and the AAFP Feline Vaccine Guidelines. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Ford spent 28 years with the USAir Force as a Biomedical Scientist. Dr. Ford retired from the USAF Reserve as a Brigadier General, where his last assignment was in the Office of the Air Force Surgeon General at the Pentagon.
