    Time is running out now for spring calving dairy herds to get their cows back in calf. Really there are only a few weeks left in order to have them calving early enough in 2016.

    Padraig Duggan of Killenaule Vets explains the disease risks posed by pets...

    The study of zoonotic, or animal-borne, disease is always a topic of great interest to both vets and doctors. 

    Salmonella, E.coli, Campylobacter, ringworm and roundworms are among the nearly 20 different diseases that people most commonly acquire from pets and farm animals.  Infants, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with limited immune function are most at risk from zoonotic diseases.
