With five full time vets, as well as four support staff, the farm side of the large animal department provides care for all manner of production animals. With close to one hundred years of shared experience, the farm animal vets are adept in all fields of production animal husbandry, health and welfare.
Along with large dairy and beef herds, as well as numerous sheep flocks and goat herds, the farm department also provide veterinary services for all manner of small holdings, including so called ‘back yard’ poultry and farm animals. From cows to sheep, chickens to alpacas; there are no production animals to which the vets cannot turn their hands. For larger, economically driven farms, the availability of services could not be greater. Including routine fertility examinations, on farm inspections, foot and hoof trimming services, surgical services (such as caesarean section and displaced abomasums operations) and herd health and disease monitoring schemes, the department is able to offer the best possible farm animal care, in a very affordable manner.
For the hobby farmer, the department offers professional services from vets who understand the needs of an individual animal, so that each patient receives full and complete health care and is not just treated as a member of a larger group. With close links to many laboratories, all manner of tests, services and diagnoses can be achieved in the shortest possible time, and the farm animal vets are always up to date with the latest developments and monitoring schemes. When this level of experience, expertise and enthusiasm is coupled with a full out of hours emergency service and personable approach, it is not hard to see why the Stanley House Farm animal team continues to grow year upon year.
