Game Birds

The game bird team is led by Dr William Ingham BVM&S MRCVS, who is based at our Sutton Bonnington office. William heads up a team of experienced game vets with 7 poultry dedicated locations around the country. This allows our clients easily accessible expert advice with rapid response times.

The team is actively involved in the Game Industry and focuses on a preventative approach to all the aspects of game production: from management of the laying bird and egg production to the hatchery, rearing and release of the birds. We want to be a true partner in your business helping you to evolve all aspects of your production. In doing this our aim is to increase bird health and welfare and deliver birds that fly consistently for your customers and shoots.

We have been delivering training to the vets at our series of sister farm animal veterinary practices so that we can extend the reach of our game bird service. Many of these vets already were doing gamebird work and we have used our knowledge to bring them up to speed with the latest knowledge and treatments available. This now gives us a truly nationwide 24/7 service for our clients to ensure that a game bird vet is always available when you need it.
