Welcome to Farm Veterinary Solutions

Providing veterinary services across Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and more.

At FVS, we take a proactive approach to help you ensure the good health and performance of your dairy and beef cattle, sheep flocks and gamebirds. 

Disease prevention is always the goal: it helps ensure animals can reach their performance potential, and is in the best interests of animal welfare. It’s also the best strategy for keeping medicine bills low!

We are happy to share our knowledge with you on-farm, and regularly hold technical meetings on topics such as foot-trimming, mastitis control and youngstock rearing. We can also provide practical training courses for you and your staff, on topics such as veterinary emergency treatments.

As a member of XLVets, we are part of a community of over 50 independently-owned and progressive practices. This gives us the opportunity to gain from the knowledge and skills in other vet practices and ensure we deliver high standards of veterinary care. And our farm clients benefit directly from competitive medicine costs.

  • its need for a suitable environment,
  • its need for a suitable diet,
  • its need to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns,
  • any need it has to be housed with, or apart from, other animals, and
  • its need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.
  • The circumstances to which it is relevant to have regard when applying subsection (1) include, in particular—
  • any lawful purpose for which the animal is kept, and
  • any lawful activity undertaken in relation to the animal.

Nothing in this section applies to the destruction of an animal in an appropriate and humane manner.
