Farm Animal Practice Day - Worming: What you need to think about

It’s important as vets to never over-look common diseases that can affect both young and old animals. At this time of year an increase in youngstock, who have poor immune systems, often leads to overstocking, meaning that parasite numbers increase exponentially. The meeting will discuss the common parasites your flocks and herds may encounter, how we can treat the problems and more importantly how we can prevent them. The meeting will include going over the latest SCOPs principles which should be utilised by all flocks in order to reduce the level of anthelmintic resistance in a cost effective manner.
