Flock Health Plans

A healthy flock is a happy flock. Maintaining a healthy flock is vital for productivity, growth and profitability. Our specialist sheep vets provide tailored health plans to increase the health of your livestock including nutritional advice, preventative medicine and lameness assessment and prevention.

  • Parasite control
  • Lameness assessment and prevention
  • Nutritional profiling
  • Lambing services

Sheep Fertility Services

Our sheep fertility services cover all aspects ranging from nutrition advice to increase ovulation rates, ultrasounds and ewe reproductive health, through to ram fertility tests, ram vasectomies and physical examinations.

In addition, we have electro-ejaculation equipment. This allows us to collect semen samples to test for semen abnormalities and infertility within rams. This service is highly beneficial because it can save time in your breeding program and increase the genetic quality of youngstock.

Our specialist sheep vets are highly experienced and will quickly identify problems and provide effective treatments to overcome issues and increase fertility rates within the flock.

Worming

Wormer resistance is an increasing problem. We are firm believers that your animals should only be wormed if it is necessary. Our worming services include faecal egg counts and worming plans with the aim to reduce worm counts and the need to use worming treatments.
