Healthy Livestock: Pigs
Dopharma endorses the ‘best practice’ thoughts of EPRUMA* completely. Healthy animals and a healthy livestock sector are key to best practice. Healthy animals are essential for animal welfare, public health and an optimum yield for the pig farmer.
Best practice includes good livestock practices and good veterinary practices (GVP). Examples are good management of pig farms, specific knowledge of pig diseases and diagnostics, knowledge of the working mechanism of veterinary medicines and extensive experience with the correct administration methods of veterinary medicinal products.
As a veterinary pharmaceutical company, Dopharma has all of the above mentioned knowledge. Besides, Dopharma is committed to maintain a wide range of veterinary medicinal products for pigs and to extent our portfolio with more innovative products. This makes Dopharma a valuable partner for both pig veterinarians and pig farmers. Some examples are:
- our animal species specific Technical Support Team;
- the development of unique and user friendly products such as Sodium Salicyl® (development of an MRL) and Melovem® 30 mg/ml;
- our partnership in public-private cooperation projects such as for Streptococcus suis serotype 9.
