Comprehensive farm and livestock services
Telephone advice is freely given and our vets will happily discuss individual cases or disease control and eradication schemes. All aspects of herd and flock planning can be covered, particularly cost effective and appropriate use of anthelmintics and vaccines.
With easy access to our large animal unit, clients wishing to save the expense of a visit fee may bring sheep, tups or younger calves to our premises for examination or minor surgical procedures.
Our vets make extensive use of the facilities and expertise at SRUC Veterinary Investigation Centre in St Boswells, situated two minutes drive from the practice. This allows rapid diagnoses allowing farmers to manage their stock appropriately. The practice also hosts beef and sheep discussion groups to ensure that our clients are kept up to date with the latest veterinary thinking.
