Animal Health

Franklin Vets recently hosted our Annual Dairy Client Appreciation Seminars for our dairy farmers.  In preparation for the coming season, our vets Jason Fayers and David Moors talked about emerging diseases.

There have been a number of cases in Northland and within the Franklin Vets geographical area of Theileria.   Be prepared!  Read the summary of what our vets have to say, and by all means talk to your veterinarian if you have concerns.
