Always bearing in mind that mastitis is a global problem, we hope that with this blog we can raise awareness of this disease, so that we are more prepared to prevent its incidence from continuing to rise.
Hi! I am Michal Pochodyla, a second-generation veterinarian experienced in sales and marketing. I have achieved a PhD in immunology after completing postgraduate studies in management.
Apart from that, I am the founder and vice-president of the Polish Mastitis Association. I currently work at HIPRA as Brand Manager, leading the Mastitis Unit and providing knowledge about mastitis vaccines to more than 55 countries worldwide.
I am passionate about history and outdoor activities with my family.
Hello there! I’m Paula Villoria. I studied Animal Science at the Universitat de Lleida, and, once finished, I studied (and also finished!) Veterinary Medicine at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
I have collaborated with some vets in the field, and I’m currently a product manager in HIPRA’s mastitis unit, which allows me to travel all around Europe and learn about the different milking systems, cows, farmers, vets, etc.
I also learn about somatic cell counts and their interpretation depending on different situations. Nevertheless, because not everything in life is about somatic cells or mastitis, I have other hobbies such as trail walking and watching movies.
