Quotes

"It is the only flunixin licensed for both intramuscular and intravenous administration in cattle and we know that this will be very welcome for many vets and farmers. It can be used across cattle, pigs and horses, and it is the first injectable NSAID to come in a durable, non-breakable bottle.”"
"However, the outcome was the best we could have hoped for – it's game-changing and it was great to see the MPs highlighting the many areas within the issue of puppy farming."
"I believe the VTLP provides a unique experiential learning environment for attendees to develop their intrinsic leadership and teamwork skills at a very early stage of their career. This is becoming increasingly important as our graduates enter diverse veterinary teams, be that veterinary clinical teams, scientific and industry teams developing new drugs for our animals or policy teams identifying ways to manage disease outbreaks or food security."
"The online engagement we’ve seen speaks for itself , but, in addition, we've had really positive feedback and, hopefully, there'll be fewer cases of canine heatstroke in the future.”"
