First Course on Avian Coccidiosis by HIPRA University

26 November 2013

SPAIN - On 23 and 24 October, the first HIPRA University, focusing on poultry keeping and specifically on theoretical and practical aspects of avian coccidiosis, was held at HIPRA headquarters in Amer (Girona).

The course brought together leading professionals specialised in poultry production in Spain and was participated in by Professor Emilio del Cacho , from the University of Zaragoza, and HIPRA’s team of experts in avian coccidiosis made up of Martina Dardi and Marc Pagès.

The session included practical aspects of the disease such as identifying lesions produced by different Eimeria species, their location in the digestive tract and the extent of injury caused. The course was completed with practical examples and auditing of the application of the live vaccine “coarse spray” and a demonstration of the new HIPRACOX® app and its applications for calculating coccidiosis prevention costs.

The course is certified by the CPD Certification Service (an independent certifying body) and is part of the continuing education programme, HIPRA University, which offers tailor-made solutions to veterinarians on training subjects.

With this activity, HIPRA strengthens its commitment to prevention in animal health.
