A reliable partner to our farmers
Our team at O'Dowd Veterinary know the importance of being a reliable partner to our beef and dairy farmers.
We endeavour to help our farmers optimise their herd health and welfare as these are key areas to improving overall efficiency and output from their livestock.
We have 24/7 emergency service because we know livestock may require veterinary assistance at any time; day or night.
We know how critical it is for a farmer to manage health issues within their herd. We offer our knowledge and skills to help farmers actively investigate and prevent against the occurrence of issues within areas of concern. For example; mastitis, lameness, abortions and potentially unseen issues causing loss of production.
Developing a robust and effective herd health plan can be a daunting prospect as it involves many aspects of herd medicine. We offer our knowledge and recommendations on areas such as biosecurity, nutrition, housing, parasite control and reproduction. All with an individual farm focus.
Young calf management is not an easy job. Aiming to achieve better health and thrift targets allows our farmers to reap the benefits in the short and long term.
We offer advice and plans on nutrition, housing and disease control. Additionally, we offer visits to your farm to help deal with individual sick calves.
Fertility management is vital for optimum outcomes from your livestock. We assist in areas such as pre-breeding, synchronisation, nutrition, emergency caesarean sections, abortions and reproductive health.
We utilise our in-house laboratory to assess a bull's fertility status. A useful test for anyone wanting to ensure their bull is ready as a productive and genuine breeder. We can also assess a bull's fertility pre-sale and provide certification of our results.
Our bovine ultrasound scanning service includes:
We provide surgical interventions when required for both routine and emergency cases. Such as caesarean sections, bull castrations, dehorning etc
We perform routine and private TB testing for our farm clients.
