In the Biggar and Peebles areas, the majority of our farm work is devoted to beef cattle and sheep. There are some dairy farms, both cattle and sheep, and a healthy population of smallholders who keep us on our toes with their fowl, goats and camelids.
Routine work involves:
Herd & flock health planning, including disease blood testing and analysis
Fertility testing, especially tup/bull semen testing, and vasectomy
Pregnancy diagnosis (PD)
Dehorning and castration
Worm and fluke prevention
Emergency work is mostly carried out on-farm, although facilities exist at both branches to receive and treat smaller animals, e.g. calves and ewes:
Calvings, lambings and other obstetric procedures
Fractures and lacerations
We are also available 24 hours/7 days a week for emergency care. We do NOT outsource our out-of-hours service - you will see a vet you know.
