About Us

Westpoint Veterinary Group started life in 2000 as a single-handed veterinary practice with a vision to provide a dedicated livestock focused service for the farmers of SE England. The practice quickly grew over the years. In 2018, Westpoint Farm Vets joined VetPartners, expanding our network of experienced farm clinicians who can share information and skills nationwide.

Our aim is to serve the needs of the farming community by providing animal keepers with a high-quality veterinary service based on proactive advice, support and cost effective medicines. Our scope has also expanded to cater to the needs of production animals on smallholdings and kept as pets.

Westpoint Farm Vets maintain a strong presence in farming media, regularly providing informative articles to various publications, as well as attending international veterinary conferences to deliver teaching, workshops, and research findings.

Our Teams

All our vets are dedicated farm animal vets. Several are further qualified within fields such as mastitis, reproduction, youngstock health, camelid medicine, foot care and farm management and all our team work together to provide in depth advice and support at a local level.

We believe that knowledge is the key to a successful livestock enterprise. From our renowned new graduate programme through to further academic qualifications, the professional development of all our vets is key to our success. We continue to instil enthusiasm for farm animal medicine to all veterinary students that see practice with us and have been successfully training farm vets of the future for a number of years.

Our teams contribute at the highest level of VetPartners farm management, with direct input to the clinical board. This structure means that our vets are always ahead of the field in the application of new medicines and technology and are able to keep abreast of the very latest innovations in the prevention and cure of production diseases. Clinical governance is at the forefront of our approach to animal health and by practical application we use this knowledge to directly benefit our clients’ businesses.

Our PRO: teams expand our reach across the country, with teams dedicated to high-level health planning and proactive healthcare in dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, and camelids. Our PRO: services work with clients to enact in-depth investigation, and advise on husbandry and management, data capture and analysis and disease elimination and prevention strategies.

Westpoint Farm Vets aims to practice holistic health care to all farms and smallholdings, with dedicated, professional cattle foot trimmers. Our foot trimmers are equipped with all the necessary handling equipment and are up to date with the latest mobility knowledge and treatments. Our clients also benefit from the services of our veterinary technicians, who can save on labour costs and take the stress out of husbandry tasks. Tech services include, but are not limited to; freeze branding, small ruminant and camelid foot trimming, faecal sampling, egg counting and parasite treatments, calf scoring, environmental and housing assessments, flight feather clipping and vaccinations.

How We Work

Though most of our work is arranged by appointment, we also offer a 24-hour emergency service, 365 days a year should you ever need us. Our dispensing of medicines also offers all the convenience of a modern supply chain with transparent and competitive pricing. Orders can be made online through farmacy.co.uk or through the practices with the medicines delivered quickly and efficiently. Existing clients benefit from farmacy.co.uk as prescription requests are sent directly to the vets, who can approve these remotely if appropriate. Our clients also have access to Farm Supplies, based in our Ashford practice for all their non-medical farm equipment, from calving gates to waterproofs.

Through a growing national presence, many farms are now close to a Westpoint practice. We have branches covering much of the South East of England based out of Horsham, Ashford, Winchester and Chelmsford, as well as York and Ashbourne. Our teams are happy to provide second opinion medicine in conjunction with existing veterinary care providers.

To discuss your veterinary needs, take a look at our practice finder and give your local branch a call. We offer free introductory visits to discuss your requirements and take queries and can offer contract services to spread the cost of veterinary treatment over the course of the year.
