The Newsletter is produced with the primary aim of providing the IDF community with knowledge of current activities in the field of animal health. It also offers a forum in which short descriptions of recent research, including summaries of PhD and master theses, are made available to all members.

The contributions are from members of the IDF Standing Committee on Animal Health and their collaborators, from all over the world. This issue of the Animal Health Newsletter represents the broad nature of SCAH very well, with contributions covering from antibiotic policies and ringworm to lameness and propane flaming of sand bedding.
