We'd like to introduce you to Laura Hancox who joined the team in October 2013. She qualified at the Royal Veterinary College in 2009. Since graduating she has also completed a PhD at the University of Nottingham, focusing on managing gut health of the young pig.
The specific areas of interest in Laura's PhD were rotavirus in the suckling and weaned pig, the use of probiotics to improve gut health, and the importance of cleaning and disinfection in pig housing.
Laura is a welcome addition to the Pig Practice and her arrival means we have increased our numbers to provide six pig specific veterinary surgeons at the practice.
