About Us

Find out more about our practice and how we can help

Delaware Veterinary Group has been providing farm and dairy veterinary services in Somerset for over 100 years.  

Our large animal unit base at Castle Cary aims to provide our clients with the highest level of service and expertise with our emphasis on team work. We are proud to have three Advanced Practitioners as part of our large animal team and strive to keep up to date with the latest research in the farming industry to ensure the service and advice we offer is on cutting edge of latest developments.

We believe a proactive approach to fertility management and disease prevention is essential for a healthy, efficient and profitable herd. Despite the concentration of Dairy cattle in Somerset, we maintain a strong interest in the other farm species in our area for both commercial farmers and smallholders.

With many people embracing ‘The Good Life’ and owning farmyard animals for the first time it can be a daunting thought of where to get good sound advice from.

At Delaware, we aim to provide a friendly and helpful service to help you take the best care of your backyard animals.
