About the Webinar
Brucella suis has recently emerged in dogs in NSW. While the disease was
previously recognised in QLD, research in NSW has provided some new insights
into the disease.
In this webinar you will learn about the clinical
presentation in dogs, approaches to clinical management and how to protect
yourself, your staff and your clients from this zoonotic disease.
Facilitator - Dr Emma Davis BVSc
Emma Davis graduated from Veterinary Science in University of Sydney in early 2002 with her second degree, her first being Applied Science (Equine Studies). In 2001, before graduating Emma started a consultancy for Charles Sturt University to successfully propose and design a new veterinary school to Government in response to the Rural Veterinary Review. Emma’s lifelong love of horses led her to equine practice and then rural mixed veterinary practice and while Emma continues to vet at endurance rides she now mainly enjoys horses on their small farm in Yass, NSW. In 2007 Emma joined the Northern Australian Quarantine Strategy (NAQS) in the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) and here worked on AusAID projects on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In 2009 Emma gained an Executive position in the DAFF team responding to the Callinan Review into the equine influenza outbreak and worked to implement the 38 recommendations, Emma and the team received an Australian Public Service Australia Day Award for this work in 2011. Emma launched the website VeterinaryCareers.com.au in 2016 and a Veterinary Career Coaching business in 2017. Emma started a PhD in 2017 at CSU looking at Australia’s veterinary capacity with respect to surveillance and the value veterinarians brings to the agricultural export system.
