Farm veterinary services
Your livestock are in the most capable hands with our team of farm only vets, who use their wealth of expertise to maximise farm productivity and your business potential.
Veterinary services for your farm
Over 400 farms in Lancashire benefit from our veterinary services, provide by our team of knowledgeable and passionate vets who have extensive experience working exclusively for farmers. Where possible you will see the same vet on farm who will work with you together to reduce lameness and infection levels and resolve challenging cases.
Our dedicated team of farm vets carry out a broad range of clinical work each day, from routine fertility visits to infectious disease management and surgical procedures. To minimise the disruption to your working day our fantastic support team work hard to ensure calls run smoothly and on time (when humanly possible!). We also have a specialist TB tester who undertakes all TB work.
In addition to this, our leading Vet Tech team work in conjunction with vets on farm to maintain a high level of animal health and productivity.
Good fertility management is a key component of successful dairy herd management, enabling you to sell more milk per year and reducing the number of cows being involuntarily culled for fertility problems.
We can tackle lameness effectively, by helping you to understand which types of lameness are present, then make important progress towards diagnosing the problems, devising an action plan, and develop the skills necessary for long-term lameness control.
Infectious disease control
There are many more causes of disease on farm our vets will work with you to ensure you’re doing everything you can to protect your herd. Our in-house laboratory offers rapid testing for various conditions, meaning an appropriate treatment plan can be implemented quickly.
We offer an in-house mastitis sample culture and sensitivity testing service, providing rapid results. Identification of the mastitis pathogen can help with targeted preventative approaches and sensitivity testing can aid correct antibiotic selection for effective treatment.
