More than 400 veterinarians from Eastern Europe learned about the latest innovations and products from MSD Animal Health at the company’s recent scientific symposium in Budapest, Hungary.

For MSD Animal Health (formerly Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health), this event, held February 23, marked the fifth time in as many years the company has hosted what organisers call a ‘three-in-one’ symposium, which brought together veterinarians from the livestock, poultry and companion animal sectors.

“The combination of our science and technical expertise with leading practitioners and opinion leaders from different segments of the industry creates a fascinating and lively forum that is educational for everyone involved,” says István Gróf, general manager for MSD Animal Health in Hungary.

Following several general sessions involving all practitioners, attendees split into groups for more in-depth presentations on specific areas of animal health.

MSD Animal Health also used the forum to showcase several new products and ideas, including Zuprevo (tildipirosin), which is a new-generation macrolide, this injectable antibiotic is available in special formulations for non-lactating cattle and swine.
