Veterinary Parasitology (VETPAR)

Økogrise i mudder med hytte

Parasites are ubiquitous in domestic and wild animals and only very few infections are we able to eradicate. Our goal is to harness the host to better cope (or co-exist) with infections or to limit infections in a sustainable way to avoid disease, improve immunity and reduce the loss in productivity.

..approaches to helminth control with less reliance on existing drugs are urgently needed to ensure sustainable control of parasites in the future. And reducing the production loss induced by parasites will limit the climate footprint of livestock and be a further step to sustainability.”  (Stig M. Thamsborg)
