Current course number:

VT 107

Current course title:

Veterinary Parasitology

Proposed course title:

Veterinary Parasitology and Pathology

Proposed transcript title:

Vet Parasitology & Pathology

Reason for title change:

Adding pathology to the course

Current description:

Introduces life cycles, modes of transmission, geographical distribution, and diseases associated with each parasite. Lab includes identification of parasites using prepared slides and collected specimens.

Proposed description:

Introduces life cycles, modes of transmission, geographical distribution, and diseases associated with each parasite. Lab includes identification of parasites using prepared slides and collected specimens. Students will be able to recognize terms and processes involved in veterinary pathology, means and processes that result in disease, types of cells and tissues, and recognize signs of inflammation.

Reason for description change:

Students need more information on pathological processes to understand diseases and the resultant pathological processes that occur.

Current learning outcomes:

Learning Outcomes for Veterinary Parasitology:

1. Introduce students to the field of parasitology and basic terms used for describing parasites and their life cycles

2. Characterize the phylum Arthropoda and its two major classes containing parasitic organisms. Also, to be able to recognize and characterize the following organisms of common concern.

3. Students will become familiar with the more common members of the phylum Nematoda, their life cycles, and diseases caused by parasitic worms found in this phylum.

4. Students will recognize the spiny-head worms, acanthocephalids, and be able to differentiate them from nematodes.

5. Be able to recognize and characterize the more common tapeworms by use of anatomy egg appearance, and life cycle for each organism.

6. Be able to recognize and characterize the more common flukes by use of anatomy, egg appearance, and the life cycle of each organism.

7. Recognize those protozoa, which cause disease symptoms, and be able to discuss their life cycles, pathogenicity, diagnosis, and treatment.

8. To develop an understanding for the proper procedure in the collection and processing of fecal, urine, blood, hair, skin, or tissue samples to be used for parasite identification.
