COURSE OBJECTIVES:

General Objective:For the students to learn comprehensively the morphology, life history, transmission, treatment and control of parasitic arthropods and protozoa affecting domestic animals. Specific Objective: In General Parasitology, the students must be able to:

1. Define and identify the different kinds of parasites and their type of hosts; 2. Identify the important events and the role of persons involved in the history of parasitology; 3. Distinctly differentiate animal/organism association;

4. Describe the role of arthropods in the transmission of diseases; 5. Describe the role of the immune system to parasitic infection;

In Entomology, the students must be able to:

1. Identify the taxonomy of arthropods of veterinary importance; 2. Describe and distinguish the classes and characteristics of arthropods; 3. Recognize and illustrate the anatomy and the developmental stages of insects; 4. Learn to describe the morphology of arthropods of veterinary importance as basis for identification 0 5. Memorize by heart the common and scientific names of insects 1 of veterinary importance;

6. Identify the characteristics, life histories, disease producing capabilities of the arthropods and their effects on the animal host; their control and prevention 7. Learn to describe the morphology of arachnids as basis for identification

8. Memorize the common and scientific names of parasitic arachnids;
9. Outline the prevention and control of arachnids parasitic to domestic animals;
10. Learn and differentiate the pathogenecity, prevention and control of arachnids parasitic to domestic animals
11. Learn to identify the species of arachnids present and
parasitizing animals in the Philippines; and
12. Learn to uses and effects of insecticides/acaricides in the control of parasitic arthropods.

In Protozoology, the students must be able to:

1. Identify and understand the structures (organelles) of protozoa and their respective functions;
2. Learn and outline the life cycle/reproductive process of protozoa;
3. Identify the characteristics...
