On Thursday, May 28, at 5 p.m. Eastern, Kevin Corley, BVM&S, PHD, DACVIM, DACVECCS, MRCVS, and Alan Dorton, DVM, will present the lecture “Nipping disease in the bud, preventing treatment errors—unleash the power of the microchip.”

Dorton will share his experiences with the Equitrace app and bio-thermo microchips. He will describe how he uses these ID chips to read body temperature without using a thermometer, with vastly reduced risk to personnel, and with social distancing. He also describes their utility in picking up early signs of disease and GPS locations of horses on farms.

Corley, an internal medicine specialist and one of the app developers, discusses further uses of this technology and the scope for medical record keeping, integration into management practices and more.
