  • Shires Vets Farm Animals Services

Shires Farm Animal Vets are a team of dedicated and progressive farm animal vets with over 150 years of experience. Predominantly based around the Eccleshall area in Staffordshire our services extend to and include the borders into North Shropshire and Cheshire.

We are based at the Shires Vets Eccleshall practice where we have our farm animal offices, pharmacy and farm animal health shop. The veterinary team is supported by skilled lay staff, many of which come from farming families.

Preventative health care

We believe that modern veterinary work should be focused on preventative health care and aim to work with your business, in a professional and friendly manner, to maximise your potential.

Our team is on hand to discuss any questions you have so please do not hesitate to contact us today.

    Melissa Bovaird
  • "Our brave cat was operated on today. He had a huge stone in his (particularly small) bladder and was given an operation appointment immediately. We had a phone call during the op and another afterwards and were assured that his usual vet had also been in touch. They will see him on Saturday, just to make sure he's ok. What wonderful treatment! (And he's been like a new cat since he got home!)"
    Liz Mills
  • "Just to say a HUGE thank you to you all for looking after Stella for me! She's had steamed cod loin and boiled rice for her tea and is currently snuggled up on the settee! It's fantastic to have her home again! xxxx"
    Victoria Shingler
  • "Best Vets ever my German Shepherd wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Will, he did ligament ruptures on both of his back knees, he bounces round like Bambi again now. Couldn't live without my dog!. Worth every star, also how many Vets would take in little rescues like that puppy without wanting to know who's paying. Five stars is not enough!"
    Clare Williams
  • "Today the difficult decision was made to put our loved horse Bella to sleep. Cathy, I can't thank you enough. You were so kind, loving, compassionate, caring and treated Bella with such dignity. Your care towards our other pony that was clearly distressed was amazing too! Thank you for everything. I am eternally grateful."
    Laura Lapthorne
  • "Just switched to Shires, definitely not a decision I regret! My pony Timmy has just been diagnosed with laminitis, a very difficult time for us. Frankie came out to us on Monday, he was very VERY patient with both myself and Timmy, the reception staff are also very friendly and happy to help."
