We have a very proactive approach to our farm animal work including client education and supporting our future Veterinary Surgeons. Our own Vets are expected to keep their skills up to date and our 24 hour emergency service is always manned by one of them. For any of our services please contact a member of staff to discuss your needs
Aside from Cattle and Sheep we also treat a variety of other species including goats, alpacas and sheep to pigs and reindeer
Herd and Flock Health Planning
We encourage health planning as an active process with regular monitoring and assessment with our Vets to improve health, welfare and productivity of your animals
From pregnancy diagnosis to treatment and planning and checks post calving, we work closely with farm staff to help with performance and improvment.
We use milk monitoring programmes and are also able to help with synchronisation and advise on artificial insemination.
Bull and Ram checks
We recommend a pre breeding soundness examination to ensure the best animals are used. An MOT including a physical examination, mobility inspection, blood testing (if required) and semen collection and analysis is carried out.
Dairy farms that have fully engaged with this service have seen clinical mastitis rates and cell counts fall to impressive levels.
Client Evening Meetings
Educational evenings on various subjects provide support for our clients and a chance to catch up outside of the normal working day.
