New approach to newt conservation in Woking

News Story 1
Chatter box Habitats for great crested newts will be enhanced or created by Woking Borough Council prior to any development taking place. This will join up existing populations, making them healthier and more resilient.

A new organisational licence for the council will allow it to authorise operations that may affect great crested newts on development of sites. For more information see Natural England's website

Needle-free mastitis treatment now available

Farmers and vets now have the option to use FINADYNE Transdermal as a single application to reduce pyrexia associated with acute mastitis.

The pour-on solution was granted a transdermal licence for treating bovine respiratory disease in October 2014.

"This latest license claim gives veterinary surgeons and farmers a new option in the treatment of mastitis," explains Dr Martin Behr, technical manager at MSD Animal Health.

"The single pour-on application means less stress for the animal and milk from lactating cows can go back in the tank in just 36 hours. In addition, use of a pour-on NSAID means reduced use of needles and better animal well-being."
