Veterinary Services for Bovine


For farms with small to large herds of beef cattle we understand that it is important that they work with a large animal veterinarian with the flexibility to perform a range of services onsite. Our veterinary team is pleased to offer high quality large animal farm-call services.
Our large animal practitioners are well versed in providing a number of preventative, medical and surgical services on a farm-call basis and are well equipped to do so. Additionally, performing farm calls provides us with the opportunity to observe farm conditions and offer advice to help the farm owner and livestock perform at top levels of production.
In general, our services include:

Farm Calls – We will perform individual animal and herd examinations as well as review conditions on the farm to help the farmer maximize production and decrease likelihood of disease and injuries.

Vaccines – We are well-versed in large animal vaccines that promote individual animal and herd health.

Illness Prevention – In our county and our surrounding counties we do not see elevated levels of disease. However, there are a number of contagious diseases prevalent in our area. We offer preventative care as well as treating these diseases should they occur.
