Watch on-demand! Parasitology

Thursday, March 4, 2021 13:00 - 14:15

The need for routine preventative parasiticides is fundamental to parasite control protocols in cats and dogs. The benefits of using these products however, need to be considered against the possible environmental impact that may be associated with long term use. This session will analyse current evidence for parasite and product contamination of the environment. It will also look at how to perform parasite risk assessments for pets, assess lifestyle to minimise environmental contamination, maximise owner compliance and how to integrate product use with other methods of parasite control.

5 THINGS THE DELEGATES WILL LEARN DURING THIS SESSION:

-
Current evidence for parasite and product contamination of the environment
- How to perform parasite risk assessments for pets
- How to assess lifestyle to minimise environmental contamination
-
How to maximise owner compliance when administering treatments
- How to integrate product use with other methods of parasite control
