Mike Deane, Tanya Rossi

Animal Health Laboratory, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON.

OAHN is pleased to announce that Dr. Tanya Rossi has joined OAHN as the Animal Health Network and Data Manager.  Tanya graduated from OVC with a DVM in 2009, and practiced mixed large animal practice for two years before returning to the University of Guelph to earn a PhD in Epidemiology.  Her research has focused on chronic and infectious diseases in large animals (particularly equines), and she has worked on vaccine safety and COVID-19 surveillance at PHAC.  She also has a strong interest in diagnostic test validation, and surveillance systems.  She is excited to work with the OAHN expert networks and hopes to contribute her own expertise to this important initiative.

New Resources, Reports, and Podcasts

Throughout the summer and fall, OAHN has been very busy creating new animal health resources, and finishing up many research projects.  In addition, we held our quarterly species-specific meetings and created the resultant veterinary and owner/producer reports which reflect what is being seen in veterinary practice, labs, and abattoirs throughout Ontario. To view the reports, go to OAHN.ca and navigate to the species you are interested in.

New resources include:

We are looking forward to a busy and productive winter which will hopefully see many new publications from our ongoing research projects, and more resources to help veterinarians, pet owners, and industry members.   AHL
