Emerging Ehrlichiosis with AMRRIC
Make a difference!
All proceeds donated to AMRRIC
Have you considered the potential for Ehrlichia canis in your region? It’s not only northern Australia on high alert.
Ehrlichiosis is a nationally notifiable disease, and if you work within the geographical range of the brown dog tick, or see rescue dogs or pets on holiday from other regions, then E. canis could already be circulating in your district.
In collaboration with Dr Bonny Cumming from AMRRIC, VetPrac is delighted to bring you Emeritus Professor Peter Irwin, Dr John Beadle and Dr Sarah Elliott for a two-part online series concerning the impact, diagnosis, and treatment of ehrlichiosis in dogs.
This short course features real cases presented by vets who have worked with E. canis since the disease appeared in 2020. Bring along your questions and join the discussion with veterinarians as they share their firsthand experience with this emerging disease.
All profits from these sessions go directly to AMRRIC.

- Common tick prophylaxis protocols may not be enough to prevent this disease
A live, interactive audience with experts at the forefront of E.canis research
Clinical rounds featuring authentic cases, as they happened
Down to earth Q & A where clinicians share real experiences from the field
Open forum: find out what you really want to know about ehrlichiosis
What you will learn
- How to prepare your clinic and clients for ehrlichiosis
- Habits of the brown dog tick
- How to hone your clinical suspicion of ehrlichiosis
Week 1 – Enter Ehrlichia canis
In the first week of our two-part series on E. canis, AMRRIC’s Dr Bonny Cumming introduces ehrlichiosis as a population health issue in rural Australia, and one which has much wider implications for indigenous culture and One Health.
Bonny is joined by Emeritus Professor Peter Irwin. He explains what the range and habits of the brown dog tick mean for dogs in urban Australia, and which clinical signs should prompt you to consider ehrlichiosis.
This session concludes with real case studies and an open Q & A forum. BYO questions, all welcome.
Week 2 – Real ehrlichiosis cases for real vets
The second session will be co-presented by Dr Sarah Elliott from Alice Veterinary Centre in Alice Springs and Dr John Beadle from All Creatures Veterinary Hospital in Broome. Both of these clinicians bring clinical cases for discussion, and both have extensive experience dealing with ehrlichiosis. What does a case really look like when it walks through the door?
This is another live and interactive session, where the floor is yours to ask questions, contribute comments, and get the information you need to prepare for ehrlichiosis in your practice.
