Cattle and sheep

Caddy VetsCattle and sheep

Let our experienced and dedicated team of vets care for your herd

Here at Caddy Veterinary Practice we have years of experience providing veterinary care for all type of farm animals, including cattle and sheep. 

We have excellent facilities that enable our experienced team to diagnose your animal quickly and provide the most effective treatment.

Here is just an example what we can provide. If you require any additional treatments, simply call a member of our devoted team and we will try to accommodate your requirements. 

Pre-movement Brucellosis

Our team of experienced vets will be able to assist you with everything you will need to move animals from your herd and prevent spreading Brucellosis. 

TB Testing

To ensure you are complying with new EU regulations your herd will need to be regularly tested for TB. Our experienced team of vets are able to provide you with a quick and affordable service. This practice seeks the testing work from our regular cattle clients. 

Cattle/Sheep export and AVI work

One of our regular responsibilities is to help you export your cattle from Northern Ireland to Great Britain. This can be a long winded process as the cattle must be accompanied by an export health certificate.

Foot paring

Hoof care is an important aspect of cattle management. Hooves should be regularly checked for disease and excess growth. Our team of vets have the experience and equipment to do this quickly and safely: our onsite tip-over cattle crush can handle the biggest of cattle and bulls to rapidly work on their feet. 

Pregnancy diagnosis and scanning

We have an ultrasound machine that is able to accurately determine if an animal is pregnant. Our team of vets have years of experience, and alongside modern technology will be able to effectively diagnose your animals pregnancy. As many clients we see have large numbers of cattle we favour the New Zealand probe method, to speed up the process. 

De-horning (wire or guillotine)

You can decide to de-horn cattle for a number for economic and safety reasons. Horns can pose a risk to humans, to other animals, and to the bearers of the horns themselves. 

The procedure is most commonly performed early in an animal’s life, along with other procedures we can offer such as castration. 

If you have a small number of cattle, all the above procedures can be performed at the surgery. This is usually priced per hour and a batch could include animals from one week to two months old. 

De-horning kid goats

As you know this can be a traumatic treatment for young goats to undergo. However, we aim to make this process as humane as possible and have invested in the most up to date equipment which complies with the British Goat Veterinary Society.
