Endoparasites: From 101 to the clinical frontline
This webinar aims to rapidly get your scientific knowledge up to speed by refreshing your understanding of the key helminth and protozoal infections of cats and dogs that you come into regular contact with through patents presented at clinics. The focus will then shift to parasite management and control, considering available diagnostics and treatment options, together with best husbandry practices that can be utilised by the pet owner in consultation with the veterinarian. The significance of parasite infections for the individual pet as well as other cats and dogs within their community will be critiqued, as will the potential for human infection through known zoonoses.
