Our experienced vets are available to attend to all of your livestock healthcare needs on farm. For emergencies and sick or ailing animals, we will arrange prompt attention.

For dairy farms we can provide routine visits on a 2 or 3 weekly basis to attend to all your fertility and health cases. Not only is this a chance to examine your animals with our portable ultrasound scanner, but it is also chance to discuss any health problems you may encounter.

Through our strong relationship with Scottish Agricultural College veterinary services in Dumfries, we can provide you with excellent laboratory facilities on your doorstep, and also access to the livestock expertise within the SAC. We are also keen to participate in farmers' own professional development, organising meetings with experts from the livestock healthcare field.
