    Parasites 101 – VETSOC

    Event Description

    This Thursday's VETSOC - FAVS talk is all about the parasites affecting grazing animals in Ireland. Anyone who attended our 'Bovine Respiratory Disease' talk with Conor Beirne will remember how much he stressed the importance and implication of parasites in Large Animal Practice in Ireland. This talk was very well received last year and should be excellent revision for all third years currently studying parasitology and of course for older years looking for a good refresher in the more practical side of treating and dealing with parasites in practice. The talk will be given by James O'Shaughnessy. James is from Limerick and qualified from UCD in 2000. After graduation he spent eight years working as a farm animal vet in the Limerick/Tipperary area. In 2008 he moved to UK for two years to work in farm animal practice before returning to UCD in 2010 where he later gained a PhD. The focus of his study was on selective anthelmintic treatment in cattle. He worked as a teaching fellow in UCD in 2015 before joining the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine as a research officer in 2016. He is also currently enrolled as a resident with the European Veterinary Parasitology College.
