Calf scour testing

With the calving season kicking off in many areas of the country, calf scours are soon to be on our doorstep. Gribbles Veterinary has a range of testing options including calf scour panels tailored to the age of the animals.

Our expert team of pathologists are always happy to assist with selecting the most appropriate tests and discuss challenging cases.  An excellent review of calf scour diagnostics written by Bernie Vaatstra can be accessed here. The following tables summarise the results from calf scour panels over the past 12 months.
