The Willows Farm Animal Veterinary Practice is a dedicated Farm Vets in Cheshire and an integral part of the local farming community.
Staffed by dedicated farm animal practitioners we work with local farmers to minimise disease and maximise welfare, productivity and ultimately profitability.
We recognise the importance of good management, nutrition and preventative medicine and are always on hand to provide help and advice.
We organise a number of client evenings throughout the year. Through annual livestock health planning and professional veterinary care our clients benefit from improved stock quality, better performance and higher yields.
We believe it is always better to invest in healthcare than to pay for disease.
For peace of mind our Farm Vets operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year in Cheshire, Lancashire, North Wales, Shropshire and Staffordshire
Introducing Gethin - the newest member of our team
Originally from a farming background, I spent most of my youth running around the Welsh hills after sheep on the family's beef and sheep farm (all for harmless fun honestly!).
When my parents had enough of me I was sent north of the border to Glasgow to study to become a vet. In 2004, after 5 years of hard studying (really there was no partying!) they sent me out into the real world.
I have spent the last 9 years vetting in the Welsh borders and North Wales, mainly farm work with a mix of dairy, beef and sheep. Since qualifying I have become interested in fertility, and am currently studying towards the Diploma in Bovine Reproduction (DBR) for my sins! I also have experience in sheep advanced breeding, as well as mastitis investigations and nutrition.
Outside of work, I am kept busy by my two young children and wife, and also enjoy admiring the Welsh rugby team (sorry!) when time allows.
