Larkmead Farm Vets provides veterinary care and advice on all aspects of sheep and goat health and husbandry. Our services are tailor-made and suitable for all sheep owners from the largest commercial flocks to hobby farmers and pet sheep.
We offer routine health monitoring and regular health visits for your sheep or goats. We can assist you in drawing up your Flock Health Plan to ensure their health is maintained and maximum productivity achieved.

At the end of the visit, we will produce a health plan that gives protocols for all areas of importance to your flock, for instance; lamb care, lameness, biosecurity, and medicine use.

Our experienced vets can help you achieve your Red Tractor Standards.
