Premier Ruminant Care in Our Clinics or at Your Home or Farm

Oak Valley Animal Health knows that caring for your ruminants has different challenges than caring for family pets, and we are here to help.

We have excellent in-house facilities for cattle and other large animals. In fact, we can care for many types of ruminants beyond cattle—including goats, llamas, alpacas, and sheep. When it comes to animals, we do it all. We would love to talk with you about tailoring things to your herd’s needs.

Cows in the field

When serving you for your large animal needs, you can come to us in Red Oak or we can visit you on-site, whichever is most convenient for you and your animals. We can provide many diagnostics for these animals in-house and also have the capability to send things off-site when necessary. We can do general blood work and fecal testing in our clinics.

Ruminant Wellness Care

Just like with any animal, regular check ups will help keep your ruminants healthy. We will also talk with you about nutrition and keeping your animals up to date on vaccines. All of these things will help to keep your herd healthy.

Ruminant Pregnancy Care

We have a hydraulic shoot and a maternity pen for large animals, as well as surgical facilities. Our ultrasound capabilities can help check early pregnancies, which allows you to catch them sooner and be more informed. In the fall and spring, we stay busy processing calves and making sure the newest members of your herd are healthy. We are also available for castrating and dehorning, as well as the Iowa Green Tag program for your herd.
