Horsham


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