10 months ago

11th June, 2020 18h06


The threat to human health of Toxocara canis and to canine health of Angiostronglyus vasorum are discussed in a new webinar from Ian Wright BVMS BSc MSc MRCVS, Head of ESCCAP UK and Ireland. Dr Wright also discusses the most effective treatment and prevention strategies.  The webinar, free to view for veterinary professionals, has been sponsored by Krka to mark the launch of Prinocate®, its new broad spectrum, prescription-only spot-on parasiticide.

Ian Wright said: “With surveys showing deworming frequencies below those recommended by ESCCAP and concerns surrounding over treatment of cats and dogs, there has never been a more important time to examine the importance of routine roundworm prevention.  Without adequate control of Toxocara canis and Angiostronglyus vasorum, the impact on owners and their pets can be considerable."
