Cattle Services

Pilgrims started as a 100% farm practice in 2004 and all of our vets have some grounding in livestock work. Whilst the practice has evolved into dealing with all species, cattle work still comprises about 20% of what we do. This includes: 

  • Routine fertility (ultrasound PD scanning down to 28 days)
  • Herd health Planning (BCVA Standard)
  • Standard Farm procedures – dehorning, disbudding, castration, bull ringing, foot trimming, Nutritional consultancy
  • TB Testing (note as an independent practice we are not part of the XL vet group so we have to charge for this service)
