Provet for education

Lifetime Learning Programme (PLLP)



This Project will involve you in reviewing and comparing the worming preparations available and writing a brief report. 

Your report will count as 10 Continuing Education points towards your annual PLLP target of 90 points, and Provet will send you an appraisal of your Entry. The best entries will be judged and you may win an Award ! 

For a selected species of animal (eg cat,dog,rabbit,horse,cattle, sheep) find out what worming products are available in your country. (Your veterinary practice may be able to help you, or search for information on Provet). Write a brief report to include the following :

  • What are worms ?
  • How do worming products work ?
  • What worming preparations are available for the species that you have selected
  • List the different routes of administration that can be used (eg tablets by mouth, powders, spot-on etc)
  • At what age should animals be wormed, and what should the initial course consist of ?
  • How often should animals be re-wormed ?
  • Draw a table to compare which parasites each wormer is effective against
  • Make any other comments that you would like

Once completed send the report by email (in .doc format) to the Course Organiser:
