At Aireworth Vets we offer flock health planning that is tailored to your individual flock needs. Our vets will discuss problems and offer solutions.

Flock Health Planning

Some of the things that may be discussed are:

  • Vaccinations such as Heptavac-P, Lambivac-P, Footvax, Toxovax, Enzovax and Scabivax
  • Worming control in accordance with the sustainable control of parasite system (SCOPS)
  • Fluke and fly control within the flock
  • Feed control married with periodic condition scoring of ewes
  • Routine measures taken for prevention and control of foot problems e.g. examination, trimming, foot-bathing
  • Lambing management, lambing areas and the lambing procedure itself
  • Mastitis in the flock
  • Identification and traceability of the flock and measures put in place for any sheep with incorrect identification
  • Biosecurity of the premises including isolation facilities and stock proof fencing

Our vets are also happy to advise on a month to month calendar to include worming, vaccinations and lambing dates.
