Vet Tech Service

Our latest offering for farm clients is our new Vet Tech Support Service.

Our Vet Tech service can provide assistance with a number of day to tasks and support with monitoring health on your farm.

Vet Tech Mobility Scoring

Our Vet Tech Service includes: 

  • Mobility Scoring

         With nearly 10 years of experience, it is really worth investing in a “fresh pair of eyes” to asses the lameness on yur farm. Our Vet Tech can provide scoring visits as little or often as needed, helping you keep track of progress. All visits are followed up              with farm specific data and graphs to help you monitor progress.

  • Body Condition Scoring

          Our Vet Tech can help monitor cow performance through both lactation and the dry period.  Over weight cows can prove to be difficult to get in calf and are at higher risk of calving problems.  This can be done at the same time as mobility scoring.                     If you book mobility scoring and body condition scoring for same visit, you will get the 2nd one half price!

  • New Foot Trimming - with no minimum number of cows
  • Disbudding calves

          Gold standard disbudding –calves receive sedative, a NSAID and anaesthetic.  This is aimed at reducing stress for the calves which should minimise disruption to the calves growth rates.

  • Ketosis testing

          Milk samples can be delivered to the practice or collection can be arranged.  Results will be fed back the same day.

  • Calf Vaccination Programmes

          Take the hassle out of calf vaccinations, Clare will administer vaccines and keep    records of when secondary doses are due and administer (if required).

Our two Vet Techs are Hannah and Clare. 

Hannah and Clare are here to provide support services for our clients and working closly with your routine vet. 

If you would like to discuss any of our Vet Tech services or have any other ideas on services you would find useful please call the farm office team.
