Cattle

Cattle are a significant part of both our day-to-day and emergency work at the practice. There have been significant pressures in the beef and dairy industry recently particularly with respect to antibiotic usage and preventative health care. Knowing the disease status and risk in your herd is vital to the success of productivity and animal health.
