Sheep

Information and advice for sheep farmers including disease investigation and flock health planning

Collectively our Farm and Equine team bring a wealth of experience and expertise to dealing with small ruminants, both on a flock and individual basis. Several of our vets have their own flocks or are married to local sheep farmers, giving us working knowledge of current local issues. Within our vet team we have been involved in the SWHLI Sheep Focus Farm Meetings since 2011, and have given lectures on sheep and goats for Duchy College.

Services:

  • Flock Health Planning,
  • Flock Production analysis,
  • In-house Worm Egg Counts,
  • Microscopic ectoparasite identification,
  • Ram breeding assessments,
  • Disease investigation,
  • Surgery (ram vasectomies, kid dis-budding),
  • 24-hour emergency cover.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or queries
