A fantastic free webinar on Toxocariasis thanks to the kind sponsorship of Merial, the makers of Broadline


I sold my practice about 6 years ago to my two mates, Craig and Tim Harrison of White Cross Vets but after over 20 years in general practice I certainly sold a lot of worming treatments. I was passionate about it because I realised how serious toxocara can be in humans as well. At that time we talked about ocular signs but now we know there are other signs as well.

I was delighted, therefore when Ian Wright agreed to do a talk on toxocara canis and cati. Cati is often dismissed or not thought about and this is a mistake. Ian is a practising Veterinary surgeon and co-owner of the Mount Veterinary Practice in Fleetwood. He has a Master’s degree in Veterinary Parasitology, is head of the European Scientific Counsel of Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) UK & Ireland and guideline director for ESCCAP Europe. Ian is regularly published in peer review journals, an editorial board member for the Companion Animal Journal as well as peer reviewing for journals such as JSAP, Companion Animal and Veterinary Parasitology.

If you register using the following link, you will also have the opportunity to win a parasitology textbook by Maggie Fisher which will, I’m sure, be excellent.



The webinar will take place on 29th March at 8.00pm, looking forward to seeing you then!
