We are an enthusiastic and experienced farm vet practice covering Wellington, Taunton, Bridgwater, Cullompton, Wiveliscombe, Honiton and the surrounding areas

Our dedicated nine farm vet team has a very pro-active approach to production animal medicine.  We believe that a combination of good herd health planning, routine monitoring and preventative medicine is the key to success on the modern farm. We also provide courses, lectures and discussion groups to help young farmers to learn best practice and allow more experienced farmers to learn from each other. We think there’s a great future ahead for British farming and are always glad to support any enterprise, big or small.

So invest in prevention, don’t pay for the cure!
