Farming - animal health advice

There is a wide range of legislation in the UK designed to protect the health and welfare of both domesticated and wild animals.

We are responsible for:

  • inspecting farms, markets and slaughterhouses
  • carrying out livestock vehicle checks
  • inspecting and sampling feeding stuff
  • licensing pet shops, cat and dog boarding premises, riding schools, breeding establishments and dangerous wild animal premises

If you would like to discuss the matter with an officer please feel free to get in touch.
