  • Handbook of Equine Parasite Control, Second Edition offers a thorough revision to this practical manual of parasitology in the horse. Incorporating new information and diagnostic knowledge throughout, it adds five new sections, new information on computer simulation methods, and new maps to show the spread of anthelmintic resistance. The book also features 30 new high-quality figures and expanded information on parasite occurrence and epidemiology, new diagnostics, treatment strategies, clinical significance of infections, anthelmintic resistance, and environmental persistence.

    This second edition of Handbook of Equine Parasite Control brings together all the details needed to appropriately manage parasites in equine patients and support discussions between horse owners and their veterinarians. It offers comprehensive coverage of internal parasites and factors affecting their transmission; principles of equine parasite control; and diagnosis and assessment of parasitologic information. Additionally, the book provides numerous new case histories, covering egg count results from yearlings, peritonitis and parasites, confinement and deworming, quarantine advice, abdominal distress in a foal, and more.

  • Craig R. Reinemeyer graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976, and spent 5 years in mixed animal practice before returning to OSU to pursue a PhD in veterinary parasitology. He was a faculty member of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine from 1984 to 1998, and served as the President of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists from 2003 to 2004. In 1997, Dr. Reinemeyer founded East Tennessee Clinical Research, a contract research organization that conducts pharmaceutical studies to facilitate the development of new veterinary drugs. ETCR’s efforts have contributed to the approval of several currently marketed anthelmintics for horses, cattle, and pets.
