The lecture on 'Parasitic Diseases in Horses' gives a broad overview on larval cyathostominosis, small intestinal ascarid impactions, tapeworm-associated colic, and non-strangulating intestinal infarction. It will summarize the scientific evidence behind each of these clinical syndromes and their risk factors, pathophysiology and briefly touch on treatment protocols and often expressed concerns when treating parasitized horses with effective larvicidal anthelmintics.
The webinar on 'Equine parasite diagnostics' will describe currently recommended techniques for determining fecal egg counts and explain relevant diagnostic parameters. Recently emerged or emerging diagnostic techniques such as anti-tapeworm antibody ELISAs and an ELISA for measuring antibodies to encysted cyathostomin larvae will be presented and discussed.
The webinar on 'Principles of anthelmintic therapy' will describe current occurrences of anthelmintic resistance in equine parasites, and briefly discuss mechanisms of resistance development. Evidence-based approaches for parasite control will be described, taking into account important factors such as horse age, climate, seasonality, and levels of anthelmintic resistance.

The seminar on 'Common myths and misconceptions in equine parasite control' will list a number of commonly encountered myths and misconceptions, and outline how the large body of evidence either does not support these, or points in a very different direction.
