Farm Animal Practice
The Dick Vet Farm Animal Practice (FAP) is a first opinion practice providing veterinary care for all farm animal species.
Our farm animal veterinary services cover Edinburgh, The Lothians, Borders and other surrounding areas. We offer a full range of clinical services as well as 24 hour emergency cover all year round.
Our dedicated team of farm animal vets have a wealth of wide ranging clinical experience, holding postgraduate qualifications in a variety of areas. The majority of our staff are recognised as RCVS Advanced Practitioners in either sheep or cattle.
FAP vets will treat all farm animal species, but can also provide specialist knowledge and advice for less common species.
As part of the R(D)SVS we have a responsibility for training the next generation of practicing veterinary surgeons, therefore undergraduate veterinary students often accompany vets on calls.
