Webinar: Antiparasitic Resistance

WebinarWhen parasites become less susceptible to the treatments that had controlled them in the past, animal health suffers. In livestock, this may also negatively impact production. Practical and effective strategies to combat antiparasitic resistance are critical. To help enhance the veterinary community’s awareness of the issue and mitigation strategies, the AVMA hosted an FDA presented webinar on the topic October 14, 2014. To view the recorded webinar, click the webinar graphic to the right and follow the prompts. A PDF of the presentation is also available. The webinar will be archived for one year.

Members of the Antiparasitic Resistance Management Strategy Group within FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine discussed antiparasitic resistance in U.S. grazing livestock (cattle, small ruminants, and horses), FDA’s response to this animal health threat, and the current science related to slowing down further development of resistance.
