Global Worming Redux: Exploring Updated Equine Parasite Control at September First Tuesday Lecture

By Hannah Kleckner Hall Published: Sep 4, 2019

Dr. Nolen-Walston, New Bolton Center[KENNETT SQUARE, PENNSYLVANIA] – Preventing a parasite-related disease is paramount to maintaining your horse’s optimal health. But as concern for parasite resistance has grown and approaches to proper de-worming strategies evolve, how do you know if your management practices are the best for your horse?

“Targeted deworming strategies are finally becoming the norm in well-managed horse barns – and for good reason,” said Dr. Rose Nolen-Walston, Associate Professor of Large Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine’s (Penn Vet) New Bolton Center.

On Tuesday, September 10, 2019, Nolen-Walston will further explore the advantages of this emerging de-worming standard, comparing them against the pitfalls of more traditional “one-size-fits-all” internal parasite management practices, as part of the First Tuesday Lecture Series at New Bolton Center.  

Covering specific needs of both foals and adult horses, Nolen-Walston’s talk will offer attendees the unique chance to put their parasite-prevention knowledge to the test during this interactive, participation-based session.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 6:30 p.m. in New Bolton Center’s Alumni Hall, 382 West Street Road, Kennett Square, PA.

Seating is limited. Kindly register prior to the event at
