What are the most prevalent parasites, where do they live, and how do you prevent them? [EL5-Podcast]
DVM, MS, DACVM (PARASITOLOGY)
Dr. Chris Adolph
DVM, MS, DACVM (PARASITOLOGY)Dr. Adolph is an affiliate of the National Center for Veterinary Parasitology located at the Center for Veterinary Health Sciences, Oklahoma State University. He received his DVM degree in 1996 from Oklahoma State University. After one and a half years as an associate veterinarian, he became a partner at Southpark Veterinary Hospital for 4 years and full owner for 13 years. During his time as a practice owner, he developed a special interest in parasitology and practice management. In blending these two areas of focus, Dr. Adolph attended advanced parasitology and practice management continuing education events, became informed about the most current information available, and, based in sound science, developed practice protocols that were readily accepted by pet owners. In 2011, while conducting field prevalence studies in conjunction with the National Center for Veterinary Parasitology, Dr. Adolph began a master’s degree program under the guidance of Dr. Susan Little at Oklahoma State University. His master’s thesis, Prevalence, disease implications, and diagnostic assays for parasites and vector-borne infections of cats in northeastern Oklahoma, was based largely on his previous field work. While enrolled in the master’s program, Dr. Adolph was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi honor society, which recognizes academic excellence in fields of higher education. Dr. Adolph graduated with a master’s degree in 2013, the same year he was named to the 25 veterinarians to watch in 2013 by Veterinary Practice News. He has authored numerous, peer-reviewed scientific papers and a chapter for an upcoming textbook and has conducted research in canine and feline parasitic diseases. For the past ten years, Dr. Adolph has been a popular speaker nationally and internationally on small animal parasitology and practice management topics. Dr. Adolph is board certified in parasitology through the American College of Veterianry Microbiologists.
