Caseous lymphadenitis, parasite control

Dr Graham Baird BVM&S, BSc, CertSHP, DVM&S, Dip.ECSRHM, MRCVS

I qualified from the Royal (Dick) Vet in Edinburgh in 1989 before spending four years in mixed practice around St Andrews in Fife. I joined the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) in 1993, working at the veterinary laboratories in Inverness, St Boswells and Perth.  Since 2011 I have been a field based Veterinary Consultant with Zoetis (previously known as Pfizer Animal Health) in Scotland. 

During my time with SAC I had a particular interest in disease surveillance and sheep medicine, and working with colleagues from the Moredun Institute I researched and published on ovine caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) over a period of ten years. I was recently accepted as a Diplomate of the European College of Small Ruminant Health Management.

I grew up in the “Home of Golf” St Andrews and still enjoy an occasional hack round the famous links courses.
