Useful presentation!
Dr Era Jo Moorer (29 May 2018)
Lots of detail and a very good review of tapeworms.
Michelle Ing (29 Dec 2017)
Very interesting course. Presenter has a good sense of humor.
Dr Scott Perry (27 May 2018)
Much of the information is not clinically relevant. The quiz has a couple "trick questions" as well.
Echo Kopp (27 May 2018)
I enjoyed the in-depth review of cestode infection in addition to new information concerning infection.
Dr julia sheldon dvm (27 Apr 2018)
I had forgotten many important details about tapeworms, including the possibility of zoonoses. We always talk about nematode zoonosis, but forget about cestodes. Glad I took the course. Sometimes it was hard accessing the lecture. I think it had to do with time of day. The little "ricegrains" we see are actually uteri with eggs. Interesting didnt know that
Dr Stephen W. Long,DVM dvm (25 Jun 2018)
Very good speaker , lots of info to assimalate.Very good program.
Dr John Hermann (25 Feb 2017)
very technical
Dr Gordon M. Goodridge DVM (24 Oct 2016)
Good overall summary of tapeworms - I do have to admit there was lots of info somewhat which to me is quite dry. That being said I am a clinical veterinarian and the highpoints were the clinical conditions effecting animals and people
Dr Joseph Orthoefer DVM, Mph, MAPA (21 Apr 2017)
Good refresher. It has been a long time since I took parasitology
Dr Trisha Ewing DVM (19 Dec 2017)
too technical

Ms Brittany Bradbury (13 Jan 2018)
Very technical.
Dr Stacii Comstock DVM (11 Jan 2017)
VERY in depth information on tapeworms (perhaps more in depth than one would ever need in clinical practice...); helpful and interesting nonetheless.
