Sheep and Goat Services

There is a surprisingly large population of sheep and goats in our area, many are pets, some are hobby flocks/herds.  We work hard to treat each animal with care and as an individual, while also recognizing the economic decisions that are often also necessary in caring for livestock.
Goats comprise about 20% of our practice, so they are not an afterthought to us.  Dr Thibeault seeks out continuing education for these species, and every day reads the messages on an Association of Small Ruminant Practitioners on-line veterinary discussion group.

We work hard to provide effective treatments, using the latest drugs that modern medicine can offer, combined with the "old farm remedies"  learned from a lifetime of working with farmers.  Strict attention is paid to what medications are legal and appropriate for a food-producing animal.

Many of our clients are active in 4-H or other show enterprises.  We are experienced in working with you to make sure all State, Federal, and individual event regulations are followed, to make that process as smooth as possible.   

Herd Health programs can be customized to fit the particular needs of your farm.  We can advise on nutrition, breeding, mastitis control, vaccinations, hoof health, housing design, and parasite management.
