Our Food Animal Field Service provides on-farm care of cattle
and small ruminants for producers and ranchers in the Bryan/College
Station region. While our team emphasizes proactive herd health
management, our clinicians are capable of addressing most
individual animal health issues that can occur in the field. We are
fully integrated with the Large Animal Hospital and any patient
requiring access to more advanced or specialized care can be
readily transferred to our colleagues in the Hospital. Our clinical
faculty, fourth year veterinary students, and support staff are
committed to provide the highest quality care for your animals and
to always be there for you when you need us.
We are available for scheduled appointments Monday-Friday, and
emergency calls are answered 24 hours a day. To contact Food Animal
Field Service, call (979) 845-9135.
