John Heslin – Product Manager – Ruminants at MSD Animal Health said: On the back of a very successful Snapchat takeover in 2018, we were delighted to partner with XLVets Skillnet again for this initiative.”

“The awareness surrounding the importance of Animal Health in a livestock production system has increased dramatically at farm level in recent years.

“Animal Health is now considered as important, if not more important, than genetics, management and nutrition.”

“Through this initiative, we aim to demonstrate what happens in the day in the life of a veterinary practitioner and the wide range of tasks and duties they carry out during their typical day.”

Caroline Keane – General Manager at That’s Farming said: “We were more than delighted to be teaming up with MSD Animal Health and XLVets once again.”

“Our aim was to showcase lots of educational scenarios dealing with both large and small animals as we continue to present diverse content to our Snapchat followers.”
