Learning objectives
The objective of the integrated course is to provide the student with basic knowledge on parasites, parasitic diseases, classes of drugs and potentially toxic compounds concerning animals of zootechnical interest.
The student will have to acquire the knowledge to evaluate and implement biosecurity plans for parasitic diseases and the basic principles that regulate the kinetic and dynamic behavior of drugs and toxic compounds in the various species of zootechnical interest, as well as know the regulatory bases governing the use of the drug in livestock.
Finally, students will acquire skills in relation to zoonotic parasitic agents and the environmental impact of drug and toxic residues through the use of sewage deriving from food-producing animals.
Expected learning outcomes
The student must be able to understand the criteria relating to the control of parasitic diseases of animals of zootechnical interest and the main mechanisms of action of drugs and toxic substances that enter animal production and their kinetic behavior. He will need to use this knowledge for the prevention and management of parasitic diseases and to assess the different circumstances that can be potentially hazardous with respect to the drug and toxic compounds.
