Q: “Do animal doctors visit farms or do the farmers try to guess if the animal is sick?”
A: Raising livestock is much like raising kids. If your child gets sick, you try and figure out what is wrong with them. If you are unsure, you visit the doctor. As farmers, we care for each animal and check them frequently for any signs of illness. f they appear to be sick, we call the veterinarian. We then take the animal to the clinic or the veterinarian come to the farm, whichever is best for the animal.
