Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy is a new form of therapy we have available to use. It has multiple uses and we commonly use it to relieve pain and speed healing in non-invasive ways to areas that typically heal slowly (such as tendon and ligament injuries). We offer individual sessions and package sessions for your pets. Call us for details for scheduling or check out our Pulse Technician’s website: https://www.corknmane.com/pemf

LVVS offers services to cattle, goats, sheep, llamas, and alpacas, from emergency dystocia management to bloodwork or vaccines needed for maintaining the health of herds or individuals. Farmers are responsible for adhering to stated withdrawal times on medications (http://www.farad.org/). A valid veterinary client-patient relationship must be maintained for medications to be dispensed. This requires an evaluation of the premises at least once a year. All cattle must be properly restrained in a barn or chute system before the vet arrives. Cattle not restrained will not be served. No animal, if they are deemed fractious or dangerous posing a risk to LVVS employees, will be served. Goats are often required, due to their smaller size in nature, to be transported to the clinic for examination and treatment.
We offer consultations for herd management, necropsy consultations, disease outbreaks consultation and management and care for animals that were once considered production animals but now are pets.
If your animal is having trouble giving birth (dystocias) or difficulties after birthing (such as a prolapse) we can help.
