TJ Duffy – MSD Animal Health – travelled to Glenina Vets in Galway last Friday to document Colm McGovern’s calls.
The vet tended to a cow with chronic endocarditis (bacterial infection in heart valves), delivered lambs via C-section and scanned a number of cows and mares.
He re-visited cows with mastitis and removed stitches from a cow that had an LDA.
Colm ran a number of scour tests and treated a three-week-old calf which had pneumonia. Another calf was grinding its teeth from rumen discomfort and possibly had abomasal ulcers.
Six-day comprehensive campaign
The third annual farm veterinary showcase on Snapchat kicked off on Monday, March 25th.
The comprehensive campaign – which ran for six days on That’s Farming’s Snapchat account – was brought to you by MSD Animal Health and XLVets.
