Clinical Applications of Antiparasitic Drugs – Part I The Avermectins

(1 CE) 1 Continuing Education Unit offered

Speaker: Pete Bill, DVM

Description: This presentation introduces the concepts related to the largest class of antiparasitic drugs, the avermectins. In addition to reviewing the mechanisms of action, the mechanism of toxicity, and applications of this drug class, the presentation also discusses the proposed mechanisms by which resistance to antiparasitic drugs occurs and the roles veterinary professionals and the public can play in reducing development of this resistance

Hookworms, Threadworms, Whipworms and Capillarids of Dogs and Cats

(1 CE) 1 Continuing Education Unit offered

Speaker: Joe Camp, PhD

Description: This presentation includes several different groups of nematodes that are not closely related from a taxonomic standpoint. Hence, the presentation is more of a matter of convenient grouping of worms that reside in the intestines as adults. Capillarid worms can be found in several organ systems in dogs and cats. Hence, there is more variety of location of the adult worms than is seen for adult ascarids in dogs and cats. The capillarids do share common features of the eggs in that they have bipolar plugs that are off-center. The eggs often have netted, pitted or rough outer shells. This presentation presents basic life cycle information as well as clinical aspects of infection, diagnosis, treatment and control and any potential human public health concerns for the common hookworms, threadworms, whipworms and capillarids of canids and felids.

Trematodes of Dogs and Cats

(1 CE) 1 Continuing Education Unit offered

Speaker: Joe Camp, PhD

Description: Although not seen as commonly in dogs and cats as the nematodes, trematodes are seen by practitioners and can cause significant disease, especially if they are misdiagnosed. This presentation presents basic life cycle information as well as clinical aspects of infection, diagnosis, treatment and control and any potential human public health concerns for the trematodes of canids and felids.

Understanding How Drugs Work: Factors that Affect Absorption

 (1 CE) 1 Continuing Education Unit offered

Speaker: Pete Bill

Description: This module discusses the mechanisms by which orally administered medications or drugs administered by injection enter the body. This module also explains how changes in normal physiology can result in an abnormally increased or decreased amount of drug being absorbed into systemic circulation.

Understanding How Drugs Work: Factors that Affect Excretion

 (1 CE) 1 Continuing Education Unit offered

Speaker: Pete Bill

Description: This module discusses the mechanisms by which drugs are eliminated by the liver and the kidney. This module also explains how changes in normal physiology can result in more rapid or slower excretion of drugs and how the elimination half-life can help predict the concentrations of drugs as they are eliminated.
