Lifestyle Farm Services
All the services we carry out for production animals we of course provide for lifestyle farmers, albeit on a smaller scale.
Services provided include
Dehorning and castrating, all performed under local anaesthesia
Emergency work such as lambings, calvings, in field caesarians etc
Advice on general animal health issues, nutrition, trace elements and parasite prevention
We get presented with a surprisingly large number of sick pet chickens, and our skills in this field are forever improving
“We have been customers of Warkworth Vets for the past 4 years; we live on a lifestyle block with a varied array of pets. 3 ponies, 6 sheep, 2 pigs, poultry, 3 cats and 2 dogs.
I have relied on the knowledge and advice of Warkworth Vets for the health and well being of all my animals.
The staff are helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble either during business hours or after hours, and I have used their after hours service a lot!
Thanks Warkworth Vets. We know we can rely on your expertise.”Tracy Roberts and Co, Kaipara Flats
The good life
We understand that many of our lifestyle farmers have moved rurally from the city. We enjoy the challenges that this presents, and always encourage you to ask plenty of questions. Several of our vets reside on lifestyle blocks themselves and are a good source of general advice on how to survive and enjoy your new lifestyle.
