Our staff at Tri-County Veterinary Service is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion they deserve every time they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
Small Animal Medicine refers to the treatment and diagnosis of smaller animals, such as dogs and cats but also many other species of animals.
Our staff is highly trained and experienced in how to care for small animals like dogs and cats, as well as exotic and pocket pets. Working with animals is our passion and we strive to provide the highest level of care possible for your pets.
Horses and other equine patients require veterinarians who specialize in treating them so we are pleased to offer this service in Graham, NC and the surrounding communities.
Here at Tri-County Veterinary Service, our veterinarians are able to take care of your prized horses and other equines, whether you show them, breed them, or just love them as pets. Our entire staff is dedicated to our equine patients so that they can have the very best life possible.
Bovine patients require special veterinarians who are dedicated to them. Our veterinarians know and understand all about dairy and meat cows. Since they know their patients and what is needed, they are able to treat them accordingly. They understand the medications that can be given and when. They truly understand how each cow is important to their owners and their farm.
It is becoming more common to see llamas and alpacas as you drive through the country. More and more people are becoming owners of these delightful creatures. However, before you buy or adopt them, it is important that you are able to care for them properly.
They can be kept with many other livestock (cattle, horses, sheep, and goats) to keep predators away, though many hobby farms are popping up with llamas and alpacas as their only livestock! Many owners harvest the wool to make beautiful coats and sweaters. Llamas can be raised for meat also.
Since they are guard animals, you will have to be careful with your dogs around them. They often have a lot of trouble learning to live with herding dogs. You must introduce dogs to them slowly and carefully.
Llamas and alpacas can be kept outdoors year round, as long as they have shelter from the elements. They can be rather hard on fencing so you will need to invest in high-quality, tall fencing. Electric fences are usually best for them.
They are pretty easy keepers. They eat grass in the pasture and hay in the winter. They can also be fed a special diet that you can purchase from your local feed store.
They need regular hoof care which includes trimming. They also need to have their teeth checked often. Males can grow “fighting teeth” which can cause damage to both people and other animals. It is also important to check for parasites and deworm them regularly.
If you have the land and the time to work with these creatures, they can be pleasant pets to own. Llamas and alpacas only need a little bit of land and fresh water every day. They can be easy keepers and many people love their wool!
Here at Tri-County Veterinary Service, we are proud to treat ovine patients. Sheep make great pets. However, many have a bigger purpose. They can be used for meat, dairy, and their wool. For this reason, it is important to have a veterinarian who understands your sheep. We are pleased to be able to offer our veterinary services to Graham, NC and the surrounding communities.
It is our goal to keep your sheep as healthy as possible. We do this with routine examinations and vaccinations. We are also here for all of your questions about the care of your animals. Our staff is also here for you if any of your sheep should become sick.
Our entire staff is dedicated to your sheep. We pride ourselves in offering the highest level of veterinary care in order to keep your sheep happy and healthy!
