Small Ruminants Services
Welcome to the Small Ruminant section of WMVS. Our small ruminant section is dedicated to the health care needs of your alpacas, llamas, sheep, and goats. We offer high quality, compassionate care and are committed to continuous improvement as the practice of small ruminant care evolves. We accomplish this with a highly caring and well-qualified health team that advocates individual attention and a commitment to excellence.
We offer both ambulatory and in-clinic services to meet the needs of our clients and patients. Our clinic facility is fully staffed including licensed technicians to provide excellent care to our patients. The clinic is fully computerized with medical records kept on each patient. We offer in-house laboratory, reproductive ultrasound, microchipping and radiography.
We have an individually stalled barn adjacent to the facility, with heated and padded stalls inside the clinic for patients requiring more intensive care and monitoring.
We have the in-house capability to do complete blood counts, basic serum chemistry profiles, BioPryn pregnancy testinfand centrifugation of fecals. When necessary, we can use outside laboratories for a more comprehensive diagnostic work-up. We also screen for CAE, CL, Johnes, BVD, OPP, as well as many other tests that we send to the appropriate laboratories looking for the most accurate test at the best price.
Our clinic is capable of performing an array of surgical procedures for our small ruminants including; cesarean section, dehorning, castration, and tumor removal. We offer gas and injectable anesthesia as well as pain management to promote faster and more complete healing.
