Welcome to Farm Veterinary Solutions

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.

Sheep lameness meeting for Smallholders’ Club

Our Smallholders Club met at the end of May to discuss the topic of lameness in sheep. Kat Baxter, a Veterinary Adviser from MSD, along with our vet Rebecca Davenport, provided a very informative evening with a presentation on the different causes of lameness, how best to treat it, and ways in which lameness can be reduced in the flock.

We also had a few sheep to examine, and demonstrations on basic handling techniques were given.
