Crookwell Veterinary Hospital was purpose-built to provide a dedicated space for farm animal merchandise and we offer a comprehensive range of drenches, vaccines and external parasite treatments for sheep, cattle and alpacas. We also stock drenches and vaccines for horses.
Why is CVH different?
We differ from other rural merchandise outlets by directly linking preventative health medicine to the correct diagnosis of herd and flock diseases. This is critical to our merchandising of large animal product, and we do this through our own laboratory services.
How does it work?
By recommending products such as sheep and cattle drenches and vaccine on the basis of our in-house pathology test results, we ensure the right product delivers the best outcome for each property and seasonal situation. Too often expensive drench is either wasted when it’s not required, or the wrong product is used, potentially leading to drench resistance. Vaccines for diseases such as Pestivirus may be recommended after laboratory confirmation and herd profiling.
At CVH, by accurately monitoring worm levels through in-house faecal egg testing, we can save producers significant operating costs. And if a product is purchased from CVH as a result of faecal egg testing, we provide FREE follow up testing in 10-14 days to assess the efficacy of that treatment.
How can we help?
Our vets will design control programs that minimise chemical use and that are specific to your individual farm situation. Call us to discuss how our combination of our laboratory facilities and farm animal product can assist with your flock and herd management.
