Liver fluke is a parasite that presents real challenges to sheep farmers and their veterinary surgeons. The complicated life cycle of Fasciola hepatica is strongly influenced by environmental factors and climate data suggest that the risks are increasing across virtually all areas of the UK. This fact, combined with the increasing number of reports of treatment failures, emphasises the vital importance of good management advice in the control of this disease.
