Improving the detection of parasitic infections and control strategies of horses

Currently, there is an incomplete understanding of the gastrointestinal parasites affecting the health, performance and welfare of thoroughbred horses in Australia. This investment aims to (i) determine the epidemiology of the intestinal parasites of thoroughbred horses under various climatic conditions across Australia, (ii) develop an understanding of currently used parasite control methods, (iii) assess the prevalence of parasite resistance to commonly used antihelmintics and (iv) develop molecular based test(s) to improve the accuracy of detecting clinically important parasite burdens in horses.
