Farm Animal Services
At Healing Paws Veterinary Care, we know that it can be difficult to find medical help for your sheep, goats, llamas, or alpacas, and we are here for you. Dr. Sands has been in the sheep barn since she was a toddler and remembers at a very young age wanting to help farmers who couldn’t get veterinary help. Since going to veterinary school, she has done an externship at a large goat dairy, spent time training with one of the top camelid veterinarians on the East coast, and owns her own sheep and llamas.
Healing Paws offers preventative care to these farm animals by visiting your farm and working with you to develop a herd health program that includes good solid nutrition, disease, and parasite control. For those of you that exhibit your livestock, Dr. Sands is accredited to perform veterinary inspections for health certificates and greatly enjoys working with 4-H and FFA programs. For breeding programs, we offer obstetrical help and perform new cria exams complete with IgG testing and plasma transfusions if needed.
