Masterclass: Worm Egg Counts With The Experts

14 years ago

18th November, 2010 18h21

P1040358 Worm Egg Counts (WECs) should play a vital part in every horse owners’ worming routine. In recognition of this, EQVALAN® and EQVALAN® Duo manufacturer Merial, in association with expert parasitologists Professor Jacqui Matthews, BVMS PhD MRCVS, and Dr Dave Bartley, BSc PhD, at the Moredun Research Institute, are running a training session to help veterinary nurses and SQPs develop expertise to undertake WECs at their practice or store. This training will add significant value to anthelmintic usage advice and sales, and enable veterinary nurses and SQPs to develop individual worming programmes for their clients based on best practice. Additionally, this training will qualify for AMTRA CPD points. The training will be delivered on Tuesday 25th January 2011 from 9.30am until 5.00 pm at the Moredun Research Institute just outside Edinburgh. The event will be lead by Jacqui and Dave and will include seminars on equine parasites and drug resistance, problem solving tutorials and a hands-on WEC practical in their state-of-the-art lab (and as it’s Burns Night, there will also be some Scottish inspired delicacies!). We expect this event to be extremely popular: places are limited so please book as soon as possible. Cost: £150 per delegate. To find out more, or book your place contact the BEVA office on 01638 723555 or Merial Equine Health 01279 775868.
