Horses, cattle, sheep, goats, alpacas, llamas and pigs - our veterinarians will see and treat all the family
Our large animal services cover all aspects of livestock care - from routine health checks and vaccinations through to emergency situations, such as injuries, bloat and birthing difficulties.
Whilst many of our livestock clients are seen on property and we are always happy to come to you, we do encourage those who can to bring their animal into the clinic to do so. Here at the clinic we have stables, runs and a crush; this has multiple benefits for all involved, including being more cost effective for you, safer handling for all involved and allows us access to all the equipment here in the clinic that we may not have out on the property.
For most of our large animal friends basic health care should include attention to vaccinations, worming and hoof care.
Should be vaccinated annually with Equivac 2 in 1 (this covers Tetanus and Strangles) and Equivac HeV (protects against Hendra virus).
Vaccinating against Hendra is highly recommended as it provides protection against this deadly disease for yourself, your horse and any who come into contact with your horse.
Should be vaccinated annually with Ultravac 5 in 1 or 7 in 1.
Sheep, Goats, Alpacas, Llamas
Should all be vaccinated annually with Ultravac 5 in 1
All large animals should be wormed regularly. The frequency of worming will vary depending on a number of conditions including the animal, the weather and paddock rotations.
We do recommend bringing in a faecal sample before worming to determine the worm burden your animal has and what worming product will be most effective in your situation.
Please feel free to have a chat with one of our staff members regarding your animal or herd and what health care would suit them.
