Calf Scours

Currently we are experiencing a high number of calf scours due to the drought conditions and highly intensive feeding circumstances.  There are 4 main causes: Rotavirus, Coronavirus, Cryptosporidium and E.coli.  Best to bring a sample in for us to test (cost $44) and then treat appropriately.  For treatment options and more information, please see our information above or call us!!

Parvovirus

It's that time of year again when we are seeing an increase in parvovirus cases.  Parvovirus is extremely debilitating and requires intensive and expensive treatment and nursing.  The virus is extremely contagious and survives in the environment for years and even exposure to a very small amount of the virus can cause infection.  Initial signs: lethargy/depressed, loss of appetite, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea.  Vaccinating pups at 6,9 and 12 weeks of age helps protect against this deadly disease.  For more information please call us on 07 46932233.
