Daventry


Westpoint Daventry is a modern, dedicated livestock veterinary practice providing a comprehensive range of health-orientated services to farms in and around the Daventry area. 

The practice consists of a combination of high quality experienced farm vets on the ground who have easy access to the specialist knowledge of consultants throughout the group, as well as to Biobest Laboratories for fast, accurate laboratory analysis.

At Westpoint we firmly believe that farm efficiency and profitability is driven by animal health.  We aim to provide farmers with the best clinical and advisory services in order to maximise the health and productivity of their livestock.

Westpoint believe in supplying medicines at the best prices, ensuring that the price of the product does not prevent the most appropriate treatment or control programme from being adopted.

Our mobile paraprofessional team gives farmers skilled on-farm support work from foot trimming to vaccination, and we also run training courses and workshops covering key areas such as Five Point Dutch foot trimming and AI.

  • Jessica Swiestowska | MA VetMB MRCVS

    Jessica joined Westpoint in July 2012. Originally from Horsham in West Sussex, she graduated from Cambridge University and worked at a mixed practice in Berkshire until Westpoint recruited her. She started off working as part of the Winchester and Reading team completing the internship - which has meant that she gained heaps of valuable experience with the assistance of senior members of staff at hand to help fine-tune and refine her skills. She then moved up to Buckinghamshire to work with the Leighton Buzzard team in 2013 and more recently has relished the opportunity to start up a new practice in Daventry with colleague Cecilia Corbett.

    Jessica is particularly interested in fertility and surgery - she likes nothing better than getting her hands inside animals, whether that is for routine fertility visits, or to perform caesareans! Having spent many years lambing in Herefordshire and seeing practice with Westpoint when it was still only a five-man practice in Sussex, she has a keen interest in all aspects of large animal veterinary work including sheep, alpacas, goats and even the occasional pig. Jessica is currently studying for the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice, specialising in Production Animal Practice (CertAVP(PAP)) and is looking forward to completing her training on the DairyCo Mobility programme.

    When Jessica is not working, you will find her attempting to learn ballroom dancing, walking her beloved boxer dog over the fields, planning adventures or cooking for her partner Hugh, who is the reason she has moved up to the area.
