Course in local anaesthesia at castration
On 1 January 2018, a new executive order came into force making it possible for the pig producer himself to anaesthetise when castrating piglets. This requires a course in administrering local anaesthesia. Your herd veterinarian will then be able to prescribe the local anaesthetic, and you will then be able to anaesthetise in the testicles before castration.
In Ø-Vet we of course offer these castration courses to our customers. The price will be tailored for each customer as it can both be held on the farms or by us by gathering several people from several farms for one course either in Jutland, on Zealand or Lolland Falster.
Contact the office or your veterinarian if you are interested.
