The Importance of Performing Fecal Egg Counts on Your Horse

Below is a link to an informative article on the importance of performing fecal egg counts on your horse written by Dr. Craig Reinemeyer.  Occasionally I refer to “Equine Parasite Control”, the book he wrote with Dr. Martin K. Nielson because Dr. Craig Reinemeyer is dedicated to improving horses’ health through parasite research.  Dr. Reinemeyer is well repsected, considered an expert in the field of Parasitology and enjoys sharing his expertise, in addition he knows a great deal about the most current research.

Craig R. Reinemeyer DVM, PhD, is president of East Tennessee Clinical Research, Inc.; he graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976, and spent 5 years in a mixed animal practice before returning to OSU to pursue a PhD in veterinary parasitology.  He was a faculty member of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine from 1984 to 1998, and served as the President of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists from 2003 to 2004.  In 1997, Dr. Reinemeyer founded East Tennessee Clinical Research, Inc., an independent business in Knoxville, Tenn., that conducts clinical pharmaceutical research for animal health companies to facilitate the development of new veterinary drugs.  ETCR’s efforts have contributed to the approval of several currently marketed anthelmintics for horses, cattle, and pets.
