We provide care for horses and farm animals too
Avenue Veterinary Centre is one of the few remaining practices offering a traditional service to local farmers. Farm animal work still forms a substantial part of the working day for some of our vets. Our clients range from smallholdings to large commercial enterprises.
We run a 24 hour emergency service for our farm clients with a duty vet available to visit farm animals around the clock.
Our veterinary surgeons also offer herd health planning and can advise on treatment for a wide range of problems including:

Foals should start their vaccinations from a young age, typically four to six months of age, depending on the vaccine used and the presence of antibodies that they will have received from their mother in the milk. The initial course for foals and adults alike is two injections given generally 4-6 weeks apart, with a third injection required 6 months later. Following this third injection, the manufacturer's recommendation for subsequent vaccination should be followed and is typically every 12 months.
Your horse should be routinely vaccinated against Equine Influenza and Tetanus. Equine Influenza (Flu) spreads very rapidly and can have significant economic implications due to loss of performance as well as the ill health of an infected horse. Tetanus vaccination is recommended whether or not your horse leaves the yard or meets other horses as the organism responsible for infection is everywhere in the environment.
Most farm vaccines are specifically tailored to the individual farm and species, so please give us a call for more information on 01476 563371.
