Endoparasites is the second instalment in the two part module 'Clinical Information for Support Staff'. There are a vast number of parasites able to survive within the body of cats, dogs and rabbits however this course covers the most common in the UK. Clients may be unaware of the danger posed to their pets from endoparasites and ideally we would like them to gain knowledge from the practice so all staff should have a basic knowledge. This course does not discuss specific treatment as this can vary greatly between practices and case. This presentation will compliment other courses from Chunk Training such as Ectoparasites and "Is it an Emergency?".
This course is aimed at non-clinical staff to help gain and improve knowledge of common endoparasites allowing them to convey the information to a client at a basic level. This course may also be appropriate to clinical staff in order to give an insight as to the level of knowledge the client care team has on the subject.
What You Will Learn
Non-clinical staff may be the most likely candidate for a client to discuss endoparasites with. Whilst the diagnosis and treatment options are the responsibility of the veterinary surgeon, the client care team should all have a basic understanding and be able to answer questions. This course will outline the common endoparasites in the UK as well as the dangers they may pose to both animal and human health.
