Our farm vets are highly experienced in dealing with alpacas and llamas having worked alongside large and small herds for many years working to improve herd health and productivity. The camelid team is headed up by Rebecca Edwards who has been awarded the RCVS Certificate in Camelid Practice. Click here to find out more about our farm team.
Our farm team are all members of the British Veterinary Camelid Society, which ensures we remain up to date with current best practice and can offer the best service to our camelid clients.
We are passionate about preventative healthcare and reducing common problems. Periodically through winter months we offer client meetings on a range of camelid topics, helping to keep abreast of current healthcare . Click here to find out more about our client meetings.
