Large Animal Services:
We Make Farm Calls
Large animals have veterinary needs that are exclusively their own. Not to mention, it is not possible to put them in the back seat and bring them in to the hospital when they are injured or not feeling well!
Our large animal service consists of veterinarians and technicians that are skilled in the special needs of our largest patients. We will see horses, cows, llamas, alpacas, sheep, goats and swine at your farm or boarding facility.
Much like smaller pets, large animals need to be seen at least once a year to insure that they are healthy and to administer necessary vaccinations. Some large animal vaccinations are needed more than once a year depending on the specific threat of infectious disease in your location. Talk with your large animal veterinarian to determine the schedule that is best for your large animal.
Parasite and pest prevention are also important aspects of health management for large animals. External parasites, biting flies and internal parasites can cause skin and coat problems, poor weight and even behavior issues. Your veterinarian can run fecal egg counts or blood samples to determine whether or not your large animals are experiencing any type of infestation and recommend treatments or environmental changes to combat these damaging pests.
As grazers, large animals are dependent upon their teeth. It is vitally important that your veterinarian inspect your large animal’s teeth twice a year and float them at least once a year.
Regular dental care and teeth floating maintains good surface contact on the grinding teeth of your large animal. This procedure will ensure comfort and good nutritional absorption. Regular dental care is especially important for large animals that are ridden using a bit. Points and hooks on teeth can cause pain and an inability to accept the bit.
Call and schedule an appointment for one of our veterinarians to come visit your large animals today and help you keep them all in the best health possible.
