Disease Alert

Now spring calving is underway, minimising factors which may be detrimental to fertility in the coming breeding season will be important. Livestock are also being turned out to pasture and it’s time to start reviewing worming strategies. In this webinar James Aitken BSc BVetMed MRCVS, of Orchard Veterinary Group in Glastonbury discusses uterine disease in cattle, and how to minimise the risk of developing anthelmintic resistance.
