The only dedicated farm animal practice in Northumberland.

A local vet for local farmers

New. Independent. Enthusiastic.

We're Black Sheep Farm Health

We are a locally owned, independent dedicated farm practice serving farms in Northumberland and beyond.  At our heart is proactive, preventative farm animal practice that will improve farm profit, production, efficiency and animal welfare.

Our aim is to provide a holistic, all encompassing approach to farm veterinary services to support the local agricultural industry. Everyone who works here, lives and breathes within this local farming community and has farming interests at heart.

We plan to be at the forefront of farm medicine and as part of that drive we are currently involved in both research projects and farmer training working with The University of Edinburgh and AHDB.

We are proud to be an independent member of XLVets. We aim to work with and are committed to the future of the UK livestock industry. As a group, XLVets share best practice and experience, knowledge and skills to define the highest standards of veterinary practice. XLVets is the biggest collaborative veterinary group in the UK, yet all its members are truly independent. Being part of XLVets as an independent practice enables us to take advantage of working with the much larger community.  This allows us access to a wide pool of knowledge and skills and the ability to be very competitive with our farm medicines.
