Lungworm clinical scenario - prevention
What advice would you give her?
Need to brush up on the latest research on the management of lungworm? Then the Veterinary Prescriber module Lungworm (Angiostrongylus vasorum) in dogs: reducing the risks is for you. We commissioned a specialist (Dr. Hany Elsheikha, Associate Professor and European diplomate in veterinary parasitology, University of Nottingham) to summarise current knowledge about the management of canine lungworm, ensuring that questions important to veterinary practitioners were addressed. They include:
- How widespread is the parasite?
- How is it spread?
- How likely is a dog to die from the infection?
- What are the diagnostic tests and how effective are they?
- Treating angiostrongylosis - what's the evidence?
- Assessing risk of infection
- Preventing angiostrongylosis - what's the evidence?
- Product choice
Our editorial process involves integrating referees’ comments, critical appraisal of the evidence and rigorous checks. The result is a succinct, reliable and impartial presentation of the facts. You can read or listen to the module. At the end there are MCQs and clinical scenarios (this is one of them). We'll send you a personalised CPD certificate for your records. So subscribe today.
