Balancing the cost of treatment with economic reality
Even with the most diligent care, farm animals and herds can get sick, leading to significant production losses, financial losses and loss of livestock. All of the vets at Snowy River Vet Clinic are able to conduct Disease Outbreak Investigation – accessing financial assistance from the government to help work out what is, or is not the problem, and how to reduce the risk of it happening in future seasons. We also understand that sometimes the economic value of the animal is less than the cost of treatment – we are always happy to discuss the costs of treatment and prognosis for the animal to help you reach an informed decision that is best for your farm’s operation.
