New online training academy encourages veterinary clinics to ‘Be WormWise’


  • New online training academy encourages veterinary clinics to ‘Be WormWise’

    Elanco Animal Health’s new ‘WormWise Academy’ is now available online at The three educational modules – approved by the European Scientific Counsel Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) UK and Ireland – are designed to help vet nurses and clinic staff build the knowledge and confidence to discuss common parasites with pet owners and advise pet owners on prevention, treatment and best practice. Time spent on the WormWise Academy can be logged for personal CPD training, and following successful completion of all modules, participants will be awarded with a certificate.

    “Nurses play a key role in educating and encouraging pet owners in the prevention and treatment of parasites in their pets, advising clients on the best approach whilst maintaining their trust. Therefore, we wanted to recognise that by providing specific nurse training,” said Veterinarian Christopher Pennelegion; Companion Animal Technical Consultant at Elanco UK & Ireland. “We know there’s a lot of sometimes contradictory information out there on parasites so we aim to provide a clear and comprehensive one-stop-shop to gain all the key facts needed to be able to advise clients,”

    Topics covered by the three modules include:
    • Module 1: Worms 101 – everything you need to know about the main pet parasites, including a summary of each species, how to spot them and great tips for pet owners on prevention and treatment. [Audience: veterinary nurses]
    • Module 2: Parasite pep-talks – giving you the skills and tools you need to speak to reluctant pet owners about worms, including advice on tactful ways to broach the topic and encourage better worming practice. [Audience: veterinary nurses]
    • Module 3: Myth-busting for better prevention – dispelling some of the common myths around worming. [Audience: veterinary nurses and clinic staff]

    The Academy is a part of the wider Milbemax® ‘Be WormWise’ campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of ensuring the optimal worming frequency according to the animal’s lifestyle.

    All modules are available at, with module 3 being downloadable for your practice receptionists.
