Worm Egg Counts – How to do them and why we should be doing more?

The talks will be presented by Professor Jacqui Matthews, Dr Dave Bartley and Dr Thomas Tzelos and will provide up-to-date information on the important parasites of horses, an overview of drug resistance in worms and how it can develop, and the best way of targeting anthelmintic treatments effectively to reduce the spread of drug resistance.

The problem-solving session will use specific examples of horses managed in different ways to investigate how worm control can be instituted with reference to best practice. The practical session will enable participants to gain experience in a number of faecal egg counting techniques, how to troubleshoot if problems arise and how to interpret the results that are generated.

Approximately 50 AMTRA CPD points will be allocated.
