Pesky Parasites in Mammals: The good, the bad and ugly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A large number of internal and external parasites have been described in small mammals. Some are life threatening to the host, whilst others are non-pathogenic. Parasites can be a thing of beauty or of immense ugliness. This lighthearted and practical oriented presentation will summarise the clinical signs, treatment and prevention of selected parasites seen in small mammal practice. Discussion will include mange in guinea pigs, and pinworms, coccidia and tapeworms in rabbits. Aimed at general practitioners who see small mammals in practice, with an interest in unusual pets - or those looking to experience the ‘unusual’ and get away from the ‘same old’ presentation.
