FARM & LIVESTOCK VETERINARIANS

At Garden Veterinary Group we are proud to have been serving the local farming community for nearly 50 years. Over this time, we've seen many changes in how farms are run and we understand the pressures being faced by the modern-day farmer.

Garden Veterinary Group is committed to providing the best in modern livestock healthcare, while retaining the tried and trusted methods and values our practice is known for.

Emergencies

At Garden Veterinary Group, our vets offer 24-hour care. Whether you need assistance with a 4am calving or a late-night lambing, we will respond as and when you need us.

Lambing room

Garden Veterinary Group’s lambing facilities are available day or night at our 1, Bristol Road surgery in Chippenham. You can bring your ewes directly to us for help with prolapses, lambing and caesareans.

Herd & Flock Health

Garden Veterinary Group is responsible for the care of 3,000 cattle in North and West Wiltshire – and the milk from these herds can be found in your local cuppa or chocolate treats. We take our responsibility seriously and have designed our Herd Health Programmes with disease prevention in mind. Tailored to meet the needs of each individual herd or flock, our programmes assess health and productivity, and identify any diseases that need to be controlled or eradicated.

Laboratory tests

The large practice laboratory at Garden Veterinary Group enables our vets to analyse samples in-house for fast results with minimal wait times. We have also forged close links with the Veterinary Investigation Service at Langford Vets in Bristol.

Calf hospitalisation

Garden Veterinary Group can provide intensive treatment for scouring calves, restoring the vital salts, fluid and energy necessary for the calf’s survival, keeping the calf under a heat lamp to maintain body temperature, and monitoring the situation continually.

Worm egg counts

At Garden Veterinary Group we can carry out worm egg counts in-house, throughout the year, as part of your general worm prevention programme. Worm egg counts are invaluable in assessing whether or not worming is required, and can therefore reduce unnecessary costs.
