Title: Opening up a can of worms: Understanding and managing equine parasites
The way in which we deworm horses is rapidly changing as the horse world learns more about ways to manage resistance to dewormers. This talk will cover the main types of parasites found in horses (in particular small strongyles) and how to manage them in a way that keeps your horse healthy and reduces the rate of resistance to dewormers (also known as anthelmintics). Topics covered during the talk will include parasite life cycles, anthelmintic resistance, fecal egg counts, and management strategies.
