Animal Health Plans
Time flies, and in a complicated world it can be easy to overlook an important routine job.
We can help by formulating an Animal Health Plan for your herd or flock, producing either a wall calendar or providing an electronic reminder system. Covering routine preventative health issues, it will mean your herd health is maximized by:
- Designing a worm drench program
- Setting times to check mineral balance
- Getting ready for mating
- Diarizing vaccinations and boosters
- Facial Eczema Prevention
- Tailoring a trace element program to your farm

Trace Element Program
Healthy Hoof is a unique program designed to provide farmers, managers and their advisors a systematic process to help minimise and manage the risk of lameness on pasture based dairy farms. The program includes several farm visits and two on-farm tutorials focusing on identification and recording systems, recognition of lame cows, treatment & prevention. A comprehensive set of learning resources is provided for each farm. Famers also tell us that Healthy Hoof benefits reach further than the cost savings from reduced lameness. They also value improved staff performance due to the education and training provided by the program, they have more confidence to act and address their lameness problem and also appreciate the time savings generated by the program.
For more information, please contact your local Healthy Hoof provider here at Cambridge Veterinary Services.

This allows us to offer you tailored services and individual plans based on accurate analysis of your farm data; alerts can be set for bulk cell counts, mating performance can be assessed through fertility focus reports, PD results can be entered whilst scanning, farm performance can be bench-marked, compared and analysed, data is easily mined for dry cow consults, induction plans and drug authorities. Our vets are keen to talk to you about this new opportunity today and registration is simple and fast.
