Lifestyle and Small Block Services
Animal health plans, preventative care, and workshops tailored to lifestyle farmers.
Vet Services now offer lifestyle block veterinary services tailored to increasing number of small block owners across Hawkes Bay. These services include annual animal health plans, preventative care services, and educational workshops run by our vets and animal health professionals.
ANIMAL HEALTH PLANS
A yearly plan for all of your animals health care with recommended products and timing to prevent common diseases.
One of our large animal vets will set you up with a customised plan for your animals. This annual plan will run through what to look out for and the products you should be using throughout the year to assist in preventing common diseases on your property.
Wellness Checks & Preventative Care
Routine health checks, vaccinations, foot trimming, castrations, dehorning and more.
These services would involve us coming out to your property and giving each animal a health check and delivering the animal health plan programme for your lifestyle farm.
There are several advantages of this service:
- A vet or technician to administer the appropriate products correctly and on time if you require our physical assistance.
- You do not need to buy commercial quantities of each treatment product (vaccines, facial eczema capsules, flystrike & lice prevention, anthelmintics, trace elements).
- We will send reminder prompts. You will need to have your animals yarded for the wellness checks and treatments but do not have to be present when Vet Services arrive.
We offer additional lifestyle farm services including;
- pregnancy scanning,
- preventative foot trimming,
- tail docking (lambs),
- pig ring application,
- and disbudding (calves & goats).
Technician visits for vaccinations, drenching, and flystrike treatments are also available.
We will be running timely education workshops to upskill your knowledge on common diseases we encounter in Hawkes Bay.
