Large Animals

Axe Valley is proud of its roots as a rural practice and still has strong ties within the agricultural community, continuing the ethos of its founder Dr Moldawski who was a Doctor and a Vet!

We have large farms right down to the smallholders and hobby farmers who use our services. The emphasis is on preventative medicine and herd / flock healthcare, however there are always emergencies and unforeseen cases that keep us challenged too.

We treat species such as cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, alpacas, horses, donkeys and chickens to name a few. If you would like more information or would like to speak to a member of our large animal team please call 01934 712229.



Talk About Laminitis

Talk About Laminitis is a national disease awareness initiative provided by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, to improve awareness and understanding of the underlying endocrine causes of laminitis.

If your horse is prone to laminitis it’s important to know that although grass can be a trigger, up to 90% of cases are caused by an underlying hormonal disease.

Please take a look at the following link regarding Cushing's disease in Horses.
