Health Plan Visit
Worth around £150 and included in the Silver and Gold Plans, this visit involves one-on-one time with a vet to discuss any problems and preventative health care for the year, tailored to your individual needs.
Worm Egg Counts
Regardless of how many goats, sheep or alpacas you keep it is recommended to perform regular worm egg counts to check for worm burden and to allow treatment accordingly and only when needed.
We hope to run dates throughout the year for those with sheep or goats, either by coordinating area visits or, if just a couple of individuals, to come into the practice, to share vaccine bottles, reducing cost and wastage.
Smallholder Facebook Group
A forum for smallholders to share photos and ideas with fellow local smallholders, an opportunity for discussion and socialising.
