Pigs

Pig medicine has grown to be a major part of our business over the last ten years.  We look after a wide variety of indoor and outdoor herds.  Our pig team can provide advice on management, infectious disease and production.  We can perform on farm post-mortem examinations and are fortunate to be able to work closely with the VLA at Thirsk, facilitating rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment.We provide cost effective quality assurance visits in order to ensure compliance with the regulations.  These are tailored to meet the needs of each client and farm; we like to use the valuable time spent on farms to help farmers to meet the relevant audit requirements (e.g. Freedom Food), whilst taking the opportunity to advise on health and management issues.
  We offer a pregnancy testing service - our experienced vets and nurses use ultrasound scanners and can visit you regularly to give accurate and unbiased results – an fundamental step in minimising ‘empty days’.
  We can supply non-prescription (animal health) products at competitive prices – please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Poultry & Game Birds

   
We offer professional and independent veterinary advice and services to poultry farmers in Yorkshire and have an experienced specialised poultry vet on site.Some of our poultry services include:

  • Consultancy (broilers, layers, turkeys, game birds and water fowl)
  • Health planning
  • Farm visits
  • Post-mortem examinations (on farm & at our surgery, in conjunction with external laboratories)
  • In-house bacteriology and sensitivity
  • Laboratory testing (Salmonella NPC, TVCs, serology, water tests)
 
We work in close association with Inchcolm Veterinary Services Ltd. This relationship enables clients to enjoy our local service, supported by knowledge that a long-established, specialist poultry practice brings. Our vaccines are purchased in bulk to mitigate against production shortcomings and lack of supplies. Our prices are very competitive.Our convenient location enables clients to readily drop off samples for post-mortem examination, faecal worm and coccidial egg counts, enabling treatment to be instigated pending further diagnostic tests.

We are proud of the level of personalised service which we offer and would be pleased to talk to you about your requirements.
