Veterinary Technician Nerd Book: Internal parasites

April 11, 2019

The next chapter of this handy tool is ready to worm its way into your daily veterinary practice life.

As you well know, early birds aren't the only ones that get worms. That's why Julie Carlson, CVT, a veterinary assisting instructor, nerdy technician and the founder of Vets for Vets' Pets, a nonprofit that provides supplies and medical care to the pets of homeless and at-risk veterans, has devoted the next chapter of the nerd book to internal parasites-both large animal and small animal (click on the link below to go download it).

A couple of notes before you go forth and conquer internal parasites in your practice:

Be sure to change your print settings to "Actual size" before printing. If you don't, the pages won't be the correct size.

In many cases, the lists of intermediate and definitive hosts are not exhaustive. However, they should give you a good idea of where you'll be most likely to see the parasite in question.


Stay tuned as we release more nerd book chapters in the not-so-distant future.
