Martin Nielsen, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVM, Schlaikjer Professor of Equine Infectious Disease in the University of Kentucky’s Gluck Equine Research Center, has created a series of 18 educational videos to help inform horse owners, farm managers, and veterinarians about equine parasitology best practices. The videos will become available over the course of a few months beginning in October.

Nielsen said the videos will be especially relevant and important to those who answer yes to any of the following questions: Do you deworm at the first frost? Do you keep your horses stalled following deworming? How about treating wormy-looking horses with a half dose of dewormer? Spoiler alert: Yes is the incorrect answer to all these questions.

Nielsen’s videos fall into one of three categories: short videos addressing common misconceptions about parasite control; longer educational videos outlining important concepts in parasite control; and videos that inform viewers about current findings, research needs, and the importance of UK’s equine research herds
