Farm Department



We provide a wide range of services for farm animals. Experienced veterinary advice is available for beef, dairy, sheep, pig, poultry and game bird producers. We welcome camelids rearers and smallholdings…or anything else you’d like to test us with!

We work across Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire. While we are mainly located at our Banbury branch, we have branches at SouthamAdderbury, Woodford Halse, and North Banbury, so you are able to collect drugs at your convenience. To learn more about our services click here.

We provide our own 24-7 out of hours emergency service. To speak to your duty vet out of hours, please call 01295 759191 to get the contact details for the vet on duty. Please remember to listen to the entire message, as there are often several contact numbers.
