horsePULLMAN, Wash. – A free webinar for horse owners, veterinarians and veterinary technicians at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, will clear up the confusion surrounding three important neurologic diseases in horses.

The webinar will be broadcast from the WSU Pullman campus in Room 1002 of the Animal Disease Biotechnology Facility, which seats 100. To register for the webinar online or to attend in person, go to
