Vets can now take part in a dedicated veterinary blog called ‘Under The Radar’
The blog features a panel of large animal clinicians, who are working in the field right now – Aurelie Moralis from Northern Ireland, Paddy Gordon of Shepton Veterinary Group and livestock nutrition expert Finbar Mulligan who works with the UCD Dairy Herd Health Group. The blog’s aim is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and encourage large animal vets to discuss their experiences of sub-clinical disease in livestock.
Sub-clinical disease is not a problem that farm vets usually go out on calls to – at least not knowingly anyway. Instead, it tends to initially go undetected, adversely affecting productivity and silently sapping farm profits. The perfect analogy – it tends to go ‘Under the Radar’.

Pet nutrition is an important and often forgotten aspect of pet care. As a vet you can’t directly force an owner to feed their pet the right food, but you can advise and point them in the right direction.
People take pet nutrition for granted, it’s easy for owners to be confused by marketing. Make sure your clients feed their pets the right food.
