Six Monthly TB Testing for Cattle: Update 5th August 2021

Farm clients will have received letters from APHA advising them that from 1st July 2021, their cattle herds will be TB tested every six-months, unless they can meet either of the following criteria:

  1. “the herd has been in existence for at least six years, and has not had a TB breakdown in that six-year period, (including breakdowns where no lesion and/or culture positive animals were disclosed).  A single break from keeping cattle of less than four months during the six-year period is permitted.  Additionally, breaks of less than one month are permitted to account for “all-in, all-out systems”,
  2. the herd is participating in a bovine TB health scheme licensed by the Cattle Health Certification Standards (CHECS) and has a score of level 1 or above.  Please note that this does not include CHECS TB entry level membership.”

So, if your herd has had a reactor found on the skin test, the only way you can become eligible for testing annually, (rather than every 6mths), is to join a CHECS scheme. 

We recommend our farm clients join the Premium Cattle Health Scheme.  You can find their application form here.  

Though the letter from APHA apparently precludes CHECS TB Entry Level Membership, farmers will have to successfully complete the Entry Level Membership, before they can gain an accredited CHECS TB score of 1 or more.

Covid update August 2021:-

We are pleased to say that we will once again be opening our building to valued clients. Those of you who have visited us previously are likely to be familiar with our ways of working. In summary:

  • We still ask that you please wear a face covering and sanitise your hands on your way in and out of the building.
  • Please only one client per pet (but two clients will be able to attend put to sleep appointments).
  • You will still please need to wait outside until we are ready for you. We will either come out and fetch you or ring your mobile invite you in.
  • We are likely to have more than one vet or nurse consulting at the same time, so it may appear that you have been waiting longer than other clients who are called in, but they may be seeing another member of our team. We aim to ensure you are seen as close as possible to your appointment time.
  • Please book appointments in advance online using our booking system on our website. If you need to attend the practice urgently without an appointment please call us as soon as you are able to let us know you are on your way or have arrived.
  • For clients without a car, we still have our wooden shelter with seating in at the back of the building so please feel free to wait here, or any shaded area on the grass.

Thank you for your support and patience with these ways of working.

As of 17th September 2020 we are pleased to offer nurse clinics again on Tuesday and Thursday mornings! Find out more about what you can see our nurses for here.

Outstanding service and care. Unfortunately today we had too say goodnight to our beautiful Diamond, a Rex rabbit. I... can't speak highly enough of all the staff and vets. So caring and gentle no fuss, no rush. Other customer facing services should take a leaf out of Bredy Vets book. The work behind the scenes is jaw dropping. Even to the point that vets and staff brought in nice treats for our Diamond. THEY ALL CARE OVER AND ABOVE THE CALL OF DUTY !!!!!!!!!! Thank you guys sssssoooooo much. Xxread more
