Herd Visits

Cattle Service Dorset & New Forest

We provide regular herd visits from our experienced livestock vets.

Our aim is to work with local farmers, from large-scale beef and dairy units to small ‘hobby’ herds, in order to increase productivity and improve animal welfare.

Regular herd visits enable us to provide the best advice on preventing disease and addressing any current or potential problems that may arise. This may be in the form of a formalised health plan, or as advice on vaccination and parasite control from our experienced vets.

Herd visits also allows us to sell prescription medications at competitive prices under the increasingly tightened veterinary prescription guidelines, which state that they can only be given to an animal “under our care”.

At Pilgrims Vets in the New Forest, we pride ourselves in being able to offer practical, sensible and cost effective advice to help improve the productivity of our clients’ farms.
