Dr. Andrew Peregrine presents: Lyme disease: Is the risk of infection increasing in Ontario?

Kingston area and parts of Lennox & Addington are new hot spots for infected ticks. A local vet cites 169 reported cases of Lyme disease in pets in L&A County over the last 5 years.

Dr. Peregrine has truly done his homework and has a lot to teach us:

  • What types of ticks can be found on dogs and people in Ontario
  • How to identify the tick responsible for Lyme disease
  • How the risk of exposure to the organism that causes Lyme disease is changing across Ontario
  • What will likely happen in the future
  • How the disease typically presents in dogs and people
  • Strategies to reduce the risk of infection in dogs and people

Since 1997, Dr. Andrew Peregrine has been an associate professor in clinical parasitology at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph where he teaches DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) students. He worked for 9 years at the International Laboratory for Research on Animal Diseases in Nairobi, Kenya. In addition, his research interests currently include emerging parasitic infections of animals and people, and drug resistance in parasites of dogs and sheep.
