    Elanco have announced a new liver fluke educational training video will be hosted on the VBMS SQP Training portal, offering a comprehensive overview of the effects and treatments of liver fluke.

    The training also accredits SQPs with 4 CPD points for watching the video and completing 10 multiple choice questions to test their knowledge.

    The new video is in two sections, offering a complete overview of the disease and the best methods to fight it:

    1) Technical overview - Examining the lifecycle and impact of disease, including the variety of actives available for treatment and preventive measures.
    2) Case studies - 3 different examples of liver fluke cases, examining the best products to recommend and the best time to use them.

    Millions of pounds are lost every year by livestock producers due to liver fluke. The cost of disease per affected animal is approximated as £6 per lamb and £90 per calf. ¹

    "Liver fluke is a parasite that presents real challenges to farmers and their veterinary surgeons," said Fiona Lovatt, Sheep Veterinary Consultant. "This summer has been unusual but in general, climate data suggests that the risks are increasing across virtually all areas of the UK. This fact, combined with the increasing number of reports of treatment failures, emphasises the vital importance of good management advice in the control of this disease."

    According to a survey of 220 UK farmers, 56% have suffered the effects of liver fluke in the last five years. Respondents showed a high awareness of the risks and timings of liver fluke but were generally unsure about which treatments are best and when to use them. ²

    Elanco are calling on SQPs to ensure they are equipped with the latest and most complete information about liver fluke and its treatments. The short training course provides vital material while furthering professional development.

    SQPs can help farmers avoid the potentially devastating effects of liver fluke, by understanding the right products to use, for the right stages of the disease, at the right time.

    • Feline infectious peritonitis: human antiviral ‘GS-441524’ shows great promise against this devastating infectious disease of cats
      Kristina Kisbee

      The emergence of exotic diseases such as Ebola and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) in people has prompted intensive research into new drug treatments, and this is indirectly bringing benefit to cats. Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is one of a number of chronic viral infections of cats that resemble those in people, and is estimated to kill up to 1.4% of cats around the world. The infectious agent is a mutant coronavirus (FIPV) that is notoriously difficult to control: the parent enteric coronavirus is present in virtually all catteries and shelters and is shed...
