Parasite prevention is a cornerstone of veterinary medicine—and a key source of revenue for your hospital. Shouldn’t your entire team be educated about it?

Available on VetFolio, the AAHA Parasite Counselor Program includes four free, one-hour online modules that provide training on fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites, as well as counseling on enhancing communication and overcoming compliance barriers with pet owners.

The self-paced modules are designed for all members of the practice team, from veterinarians, technicians, and support staff to practice managers and client service representatives, and cover:

  • Flea and tick life cycles and the use of preventive products
  • The elements of a successful flea and tick control program
  • How to effectively work with pet owners for flea and tick control
  • Improved distribution of flea and tick control products
  • Heartworm and intestinal parasite life cycles and how they impact the spread of disease
  • Heartworm and intestinal parasite testing methods and the use of preventive products
  • How to develop a pet owner communication plan
  • How to become an advocate for parasite prevention

Participants will receive one CE credit hour for each module upon completion.

The AAHA Parasite Counselor Program is made possible by an educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health.
