COVID 19 UPDATE – We have started inviting clients back into the practice however in order to maintain social distancing we are allowing just 4 clients/visitors in, at any one time.  When numbers are reached, you may be offered a pager/buzzer as an alternative and asked to wait outside.  Face coverings are required and if you do not have your own, they can be purchased from us.  Do let us know if you suffer from any conditions that makes you exempt from wearing one.

We kindly request only one member of the family attends, where possible and aim to get for us at the correct time for your appointment to avoid ongoing delays.

Our standard opening hours are back to normal and can be found here

DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE DEMONSTRATING CLINICAL SIGNS OF COVID-19! Thank you once again for your patience.

After the heavy rain in recent months, lungworm may be a significant risk on many pastures in the next grazing season as infective larvae are washed out of faecal pats onto vegetation. Don’t forget that unlike many gut worms, lungworm can remain infective on pastures for much longer periods of time and as such it is very difficult to make use of “clean grazing”.

Vaccination is a great start in preventing clinical disease, but don’t forget that vaccinated animals will have to have exposure to lungworm larvae to boost their immunity so don’t over-treat for worms at pasture
