Course description

During Veterinary Pharmacology 2, students learn the theoretical and practical aspects of the usage of etiotropic drugs involving antimicrobial, antiparasitic and antineoplastic agents. Similarly to the first semester, we aim to develop students’ first day skills of drug use and educate pharmacology based on the relevant scientific literature supplemented with ethical, legal and public health aspects. Significant part of the course is dedicated to the pharmacology of antibacterial agents, where strong emphasis is put on the prudent use of these drugs due to the spread of antimicrobial resistance in both human and veterinary medicine. Furthermore, during practicals, students learn to calculate drug doses to be administered for both individual and mass treatment, and they perform and evaluate a complex pharmacokinetic investigation on broiler chickens.

Evaluation description

*Topic of the small tests and midterms

Small test1: First two practicals (Fluid therapy, Posology, Pharmacokinetics)

Small test2: Third, fourth and fifth practical (Inflammation, respiratory, cardiovascular pharmacology, hormones)

Small test3: Sixth, ninth, tenth practical (Reduction of AB usage, AB alternatives, disinfectants, AB usage Ru, Eq, Su, poultry)

All small tests can include dose calculations.


Midterm1: Antibiotics – Lectures 1-12 (Including quinolones)

Midterm2: Polypeptides, rifamycins, glycopeptides, sulphonamides and diaminopyrimidines, Anthelmintics I, II, Ectoparasiticids I, II – Lectures 13-14 and 17-22


All small tests are obligatory and can be done only once (there will be no retake option). At least 60% should be achieved as an average of the three small tests. In case of not achieving 60%, a final retake test will be provided at the end of the semester covering all practical topics of the semester. If this is also failed, the student cannot get signature and cannot sign up for the exam.

Both midterms are obligatory, and one retake option will be provided for each. At least 60% should be achieved on both midterms for the signature. In case someone fails or misses any of the midterms, a final retake midterm should be written at the end of the semester, covering topics of both midterms. If this is also failed, the student cannot get signature and cannot sign up for the final exam. The midterm retakes can be taken by those, who passed the first occasion but would like to improve their result, however, the second result will count anyway, even if it is worse.

On the midterms’ weeks, there are no practicals.

The written exam is obligatory (unless someone achieves the 90% exemption). There are no choice limits, however, after 3 written exams, one option is lost from the oral exam. The oral exam can only be taken after successfully passing the written part. The written exam is successful in case of achieving at least 60%. The written exam covers practical topics of both semesters.


Final exam, written part:

25th May (Tuesday)

31st May (Monday)

7th June (Monday)

14th June (Monday)

21st June (Monday)

28th June (Monday)

On the oral exam, two topics must be discussed by students and each of them must be known on an acceptable level. The oral exam covers lecture topics of both semesters. Depending on the epidemiological situation, the oral exam will be held personally or via Microsoft Teams. Dates and further details will be announced later during the semester.

Small tests, midterms and the final exam will be written in the Moodle system. Their exact structure will be announced later during the semester.
