At the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, we are. We know that tick-borne infectious diseases remain a serious threat to both pets and people in our state and around the world. Common diseases affecting dogs and people include: Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Bartonellosis and more.
We also know that early diagnosis and treatment of vector-borne disease is key. That’s why we are creating an endowed faculty position to concentrate on the causes, diagnosis and treatment of companion animal infectious diseases called the Companion Animal Research Endowment: Infectious Disease (CARE: ID). Our pets are truly the “underdogs” and “undercats” in this fight against vector-borne diseases. They need our support, not just to help them recover from these diseases, but also to prevent them. Today, the resources devoted to CARE: ID are limited. But together, we have the chance to create a better future for people and pets. Your contribution would help us do something extraordinary.
