At East Holmes Veterinary Clinic, we understand that protecting the health of your herd is not only important for each animal's well-being, but it is also your livelihood. Whether you have just a few animals, or a very large herd, we are happy to provide the care that you need. Here's a look at a few of the services we offer.
Herd Health: We can help you design feeding, deworming, and vaccination protocols to maximize the health and production of your herd. In addition, we provide TB and brucellosis testing, castration, palpation, and other routine services. Health certificates can also be provided when necessary for transport.
Reproductive Services/Ultrasound: In addition to routine palpation, we can also offer reproductive ultrasounds, synchronization programs and treatment of pregnancy related complications such as dystocia.
Sick Animals: Our doctor's can provide urgent care for a variety of conditions such as milk fever, ketosis, and mastitis. We can provide fluid and electrolyte therapy in the field as well as hospitalized care for young calves.
Surgical Services: We are experienced in the latest techniques for field treatment of displaced abomasums, abomasal torsions, umbilical hernias and uterine prolapse. We can also perform c-sections in the field when necessary for the treatment of dystocia. Additional procedures include dehorning and laceration repair.
Digital Radiography: Digital radiography uses x-rays to visualize bone for abnormalities including fractures and bone infection. Our unit is capable of providing digital images. This also allows us to forward images to a board certified radiologist or other specialist for a second opinion when necessary.
Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory is equipped for most routine blood and urine testing. In addition, we have the ability to culture milk and other samples in-house to reduce cost and provide rapid results for the diagnosis and treatment of bacterial infections. When necessary, samples can be sent to an outside lab for more specialized testing.
