Bovine Respiratory Disease – review

It’s that time of year again – Bovine Respiratory Disease! This devastating disease causes significant economic and production losses in cattle youngstock.

Prevention is far better than cure with every pneumonia case costing approx £80 per animal. Vaccinating and looking at housing measures are a much more cost effective solution, but vary significantly between systems.

Please get in touch if you would like a farm visit or to discuss vaccination and prevention.
Meanwhile life goes on as normal as possible at the practice along with our rounds to visit livestock owners across:
Bishops Castle, Craven Arms, Church Stretton, Lydbury North and Montgomery.

We are making the most of new virtual consultations by using Skype.

Simply search Skype for ‘Bishops Castle Vets’ and we can help you from there or call us on 01588 638356

GUIDANCE FOR VISITING THE PRACTICE –
*Call in advance of your visit
*Please make every effort to order medication IN ADVANCE so that we are able to get your order ready for collection and can then bring it out to you, or leave in the box by the front door.

– We would like to remind all of our clients that we are ALWAYS available for help and advice but please use Skype, WhatsApp or Telephone.
