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 improves 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.

Baby Alpaca Alert! 😍
It is a real treat us to have a large animal patient in the small animal clinic. Vet nurse, Jess, was happy to cuddle the 4 days old cria while Dr Cecilia prepared her for minor surgery. She has made a full recovery and went home afterwards, back to her mum.

Something special for one of our largie vets! This young lady was having a hard time giving birth so with a little surgical assistance...voila! 3 days post-surgery "Zippa" (as she is now referred to by her owner) is doing very well. ... See MoreSee Less

Do you know this cat???Are you missing a furry friend?

We have a lovely female cat who has been hanging around the neighbourhood off Kelly Road.

She does have a slick on the back of her neck meaning she likely had some flea treatment applied recently, and she has a microchip, but unfortunately not registered with the National Database or any of the clinics in Cambridge.

If you think she looks familiar, please get in touch with us at Cambridge Vets! 07 827 7099.

Please also share the story for us to help find this little girls home!
