Huvepharma® Intestinal Gut Health Training in Poultry
On a regular basis (2-3 times per year), Huvepharma® organizes a training on intestinal health in poultry in the beautiful medieval city of Ghent. This training on gut health in poultry focusses on coccidiosis diagnosis and coccidiosis control programs. Both theoretical and practical sessions are aiming to increase the knowledge on this economical important poultry disease.
The theoretical session first gives an overview of different pathogens possibly impairing gut health and secondly focusses on coccidiosis. Next to a correct diagnosis it is important to implement an optimal coccidiosis program which can consist of coccidiostats or coccidiosis vaccines. Depending on the needs of the customers a guest speaker is invited who brings the latest update on his field of expertise.
The practical session (a wet lab) is organized at the faculty of veterinary medicine of Ghent university and gives the opportunity to look at the impact of coccidiosis on the intestinal tract from a very close distance.
In October 2017 Huvepharma® organized 2 gut health workshops, one focusing on the international market and one focusing on the EU market.
The international edition was held from the 16th till the 18th of October and was attended by 35 participants from 10 different countries.
The EU edition was held from the 24th till the 26th of November 2017 and was attended by 55 participants from 12 different countries.
The rationale behind organizing 2 different workshops is the fact that different control tools are available in different markets and making this split gives us the opportunity to better adapt our presentations and topics to the needs of the customer. We would like to thank you for your time and interest if you already attended one of our trainings and if not we hope to see you at one of our next workshops in Ghent.
