Pigs

Commercial piggeries are banned in the hills but we see a surprising amount of pet pigs.We do all general health care such as disease prevention, parasite control as well as  desexing. Implanting nose rings is not an uncommon procedure.

 

Sheep, Goats and Alpacas

We see a lot of sheep, goats in the Adelaide hills and with the increase of hobby farms in the area we now see an increasing number of Alpacas. We have extensive experience in treating all these species. We are happy to do farm visits for you but if you prefer you can bring them to the clinic to be treated here. As we always have vets available at the clinic you can quite often be seen quicker, than if we have to come out to you. We have an outside area and stables where we can assess and treat your animals. We offer all routine health care such as worming, vaccination, disease prevention and all aspects of reproduction as well as emergency care for injury etc. Dr James is our contact for Johne’s and Ovine Brucellosis accreditation program.
