Farm Animal Department

Our goal is to optimise animal health for improved farm profitability and job satisfaction

Our goal at Cambridge Vets is to assist our clients to maximise profit through optimal animal health.
For both commercial farms and lifestyle blocks we can help with health plans, routine jobs and emergencies.
We offer value through our experienced team with extensive knowledge in all areas of production animal medicine.

The dedicated Farm Animal team consists of six production animal vets.
We utilize up-to-date information, technology and equipment for the care of your animals and herds.

Mastitis

Spring is the time when most herds get challenged by mastitis cases and cell count spikes

M Bovis Update

Mycoplasma Bovis is mostly spread through movement of animals and infected milk fed to calves; ………………….

Scanning

Scanning your herd is such an important management tool, allowing you to identify and cull empties (especially if pasture cover is tight), to identify late cows (for culling or delayed dry off), to identify early calvers (for differential feed management or return from grazing). We utilize backpack scanners and, if you are signed up to Infovet, a tablet with mating dates on it. This improvesΒ accuracy and will then upload the results automatically for you. Early scanning (6 weeks after AI finishes) allows us to accurately date AI pregnancies, and to give you direct feedback on the success or weaknesses of AI/heat detection/cidr’s.Late scanning (6 weeks after the bulls exit) allows us to identify late calvers and empty cows. Whether you want one or both scans, everyone else will be wanting this service at the same time! So please book in scanning with us ahead of time to guarantee the best possible service.

Friday cuteness is another pup that has become a part of the extended Cambridge Vets family. 🐾πŸ₯°

Welcome to Frida! She has joined the Crickett family recently and is bringing joy to all who meet her. She is a Bichon Frise/Maltese cross and is now 6 months old. Going from large dogs, a Boxer and a Labrador, Chris and Robyn are enjoying the ease of having a small dog with a big dog personality. Outgoing and full of enthusiasm, and super cute, she befriends all who meet her. 🐢😍

Happy Friday everyone! 😁 Today I’d like to introduce this handsome boy. Oh and his hooman Kelvin, is pretty cute too – LOL! 😍
Axel is the new addition to the Scown family. He is currently 18 weeks old and is growing fast. The two photos were taken 6 weeks apart and I think he has tripled in size, growing as fast as the animals on the African savannah he was bred to hunt. Typically Rhodesian Ridgebacks are a large, athletic and imposing dog with a loyal and intelligent nature. Axel is certainly intelligent enough to know that living with the Scown’s means he has landed on his feet and he has certainly made himself at home. πŸΎπŸ•πŸ₯°
