our community at our office and at their homes
Licking Valley Veterinary Service offers veterinary care for horses, dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, llamas, alpacas and exotics. For your convenience services are offered both at our clinic and your home or farm. Digital records are in place to offer better care and be as eco-friendly of a business as possible. While Licking Valley Veterinary Service has mobile services, certain situations require work at the office to provide the best care for your animals. Please view the categories below to find out more information about specific treatments for animals. We also have a veterinary technician who can complete routine procedures, where a veterinarian exam is not required, to keep cost down for your convenience.
SMALL ANIMAL SERVICES
Licking Valley Veterinary Hospital may treat wildlife that is brought to the clinic. Remember wild animals do best in the environment they are from and it is illegal to keep wildlife without a license from the Department of Fish and Wildlife. If you have questions or think a wild animal is in need of help it is best to contact a Wildlife Rescue.

***AS OF JANUARY 2022 ONLY ACTIVE CLIENTS (CLIENTS WHO HAVE HAD AN ANIMAL SEEN IN THE LAST YEAR) WILL RECIEVE CATTLE SERVICES***
New Cattle clients are not being accepted at this time.
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.
