of the practice’s younger vets who was recruited direct from veterinary school. NVG has set up Dairy Cow Watch Ltd to market the service, which they are keen to offer to herds all over the country, not just in their existing practice area. However, the service is only provided with the knowledge and co-operation of a client’s own vet and costs £30 per month or £100 for a one-off report. Cow Watch includes a unique concept in a negative energy balance graph, which can be a vital early indicator of potential problems before they occur. Also demonstrating the desire in the practice to offer the best was the opening last year of their new Large Animal Unit on land bought from Ian Williamson of the Wardle herd. This magnifi cent new building offers state of the art scanning and diagnostic equipment as well as isolation and embryo transfer facilities. The facility is equally able to handle cows and horses and has already started to bring in new clients seeking accurate diagnosis of problems in highly valuable animals.


Neil has spent thirty years at Nantwich Veterinary Group, which is not bad for someone who intended to stay for just six months to gain experience. He has been involved in constant development at the practice throughout that time, and has seen his profession alter the way they deal with their clients. Every day, even after three decades, he’s prepared to say that he doesn’t know how best to deal with every problem he comes across, but he has a colleague who can. With a total of 25 vets at NVG, and the acquired knowledge and experience of Mr Wilson still readily available, plus a substantial investment in the latest technology, Neil is confi dent that he and his colleagues can offer the dairy herds of Cheshire and beyond the best in veterinary care and advice.
