The American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) will hold the 58th Annual Meeting on July 20th – 23rd in Chicago, IL. The meeting promises to deliver a very exciting program and will bring together scientists from academia, industry, government as well as private practitioners. With the growing concerns around parasiticide resistance, the changing regulatory environment, and the launch of many new products for the control of pests and parasites there has never been a better time to attend this meeting.

FDA/CVM recently launched a Web page on antiparasitic resistance and Antiparasitic Resistance Management Strategy, or ARMS. The page (click here) includes a link to an overview of the public meeting that the FDA held in March 2012 on antiparasitic resistance as well as a link to the new online brochure for veterinarians on antiparasitic resistance in cattle and small ruminants.
Hardcopies of the brochure will be available at the AVMA/AAVP convention in July.
