Small Ruminant Services

We aspire to create innovative approaches to ensure the continued success of our small flocks and herds.

Deworming and Parasite Management

Goats need routine fecal exams and an up to date deworming strategy in order to stay healthy and disease-free. Stomach worms can consume up to one and a half pints of blood per day! Let’s keep your kids happy, bouncy, and playful for years to come.


Sheep and goats need yearly vaccines to keep them healthy and free of disease. Our team of experienced practitioners will help you decide which vaccines are right for your animals, administer them properly and even show you how to administer them if you’d like to do them yourself!

Surgery and Disbudding

We perform castrations on all ages of animals, disbud kids, and anything in between in a low-stress and often pain-free procedure.

Sick Appointments

24 Hour Emergency

We understand emergencies happen, and a lot of times, they happen outside of business hours. Appalachian is always here for our clients. Day, night, weekend, or holiday. Our team of large animal doctors rotates calls, so your vet on-call is always available and is rested, fresh, and ready to triage and treat emergencies with a clear mind. From blocked goats and c-sections to severe lacerations and broken legs, you can always rely on Appalachian to be there when you need us most and be happy to help.

Our Afterhours Emergency Service Policy

  • Must be an active client to be guaranteed emergency services. In order to be considered an active client, our doctors must have been on your farm and examined your animal(s) for a routine wellness appointment within the last twelve (12) months.
  • In order to always be available to provide the best possible care for our loyal client base and to keep our team safe, we do not accept new clients after-hours.
  • Emergency fees are an additional charge and vary depending on the time your emergency is seen by our on-call doctors.

Pregnancy Diagnosis

We can help answer the question of whether or not you’ll have screaming kids or lambs any time soon! From instant results via ultrasound or a blood test, you’ll no longer have to wait and wonder.


It’s never an easy decision. We approach end-of-life with care, understanding, and compassion. We will support you every step of the way and make the experience as comfortable as possible for you and your animal. We are always here for you, especially on the worst days.
