I was fortunate to present on grass awn infection to the Purina Pointing Dog Awards gathering in Kansas City this past weekend with Dr. Pat McInteer. Dr. McInteer shared an article that he wrote with Dr. James Mills on diagnosing and treating nocardia and associated infections, and was amenable to hosting that article here, as well as a second article that he wrote on speargrass. My thanks to both Dr. McInteer and Dr. Mills for sharing this information. See Pages list to the right for the article links.
Thanks as well to Dr. Matt Rooney, who generously took the time (during his vacation, no less!) to review the presentation slides. I will be posting these here soon.
