Services & treatments
Ruminant medical services
We have vets experienced in all commercial and hobby farm species, including beef and dairy cattle, sheep, goats, and alpacas. We can perform on farm blood testing with our I-STAT blood testing equipment, or in-house blood machines, meaning we can have your results in just minutes. We are equipped to provide critical care of neonate ruminants, small ruminants and alpacas (pseudo ruminants).
Ruminant vaccinations, parasite control and husbandry
We are able to provide recommendations and administer vaccinations for your livestock if needed. We encourage best practice internal parasite control with selective use of anthelmintics based on faecal egg count results from our in-house or external laboratory facilities, to prevent anthelmintic resistance. We are more than happy to assist with the administration of anthelmintics if required. Contact us also for hoof trimming, de-budding of horns, or horn trimming, with the added advantage of decreased pain and faster recovery when these procedures are done under sedation and local anaesthetics.
We have vets with extensive experience in surgery of all farm animals. Procedures we routinely perform include castration, hernia repair, tumour removals, caesareans, left and right displaced abomasum surgeries to name just a few.
Cattle reproduction services
Cattle reproduction is a special interest area at the Berry Veterinary Clinic. We routinely perform ultrasound and manual pregnancy diagnosis in cattle with accreditation with the Australian Cattle Veterinarian Accreditation scheme. In addition we offer reproductive programs, artificial insemination and embryo transfer. We also offer bull breeding soundness examinations including bull fertility testing.
Herd health services
We have skilled veterinarians in dairy herd health services. We visit many of the local dairies on a fortnightly basis to ensure their herds are healthy and producing to the best of their ability. This includes monitoring for preparation and maintenance of pregnancy, investigating lame cows, and helping to manage mastitis, amongst others. In addition, our skilled staff can always point you in the right direction regarding the most up to date nutritional recommendations.
We have vets certified to undertake Bovine, Ovine, Caprine and Camelid Johnes MAP accreditation.
