365, 24/7

We are trusted farm vets with over 100 years of specialist experience, providing a complete and reliable veterinary service for all livestock under our care. Our focus is on working with the complete farm team, to create bespoke preventative health care plans as well as dealing with the everyday individual sick animals and emergencies 24 hours daily, 365 days of the year.

Large Animal Care

Within our team of highly motivated and experienced mixed practitioners, we have several Farm animal only vets. In addition, we have individual vets with areas of special interest and knowledge: this includes cattle lameness, nutrition, fertility and mastitis as well as sheep medicine and animal welfare.

All our farm vets have extensive knowledge of both the farming systems and have formed strong links within the rural communities within our practice area.
