Large Animal Vet in Warrick County

In addition to small animal companions, Warrick Veterinary provides large animal vet services to many species at our Boonville location. We also recently added a second Boonville location on Highway 261, WVC Legacy Veterinary Services, where we see large animals. The species we see include production pigs. We provide the same high level of care and compassion that we do for our other patients, with consideration to age, lifestyle, and risk of disease and parasite exposure. The following is a list of services that we provide for our large animal patients:

  • Wellness exams, including show exams
  • Soundness exams
  • Routine health management
  • Vaccinations
  • Herd and individual-based medicine
  • Imaging
  • Surgeries
  • Reproductive services
  • Laboratory testing
  • Nutritional consultation

These services can be performed right on your farm or at one of our clinics. Our facilities are staffed with veterinarians who have extensive personal and professional experience with large animals. They’re also equipped with advanced tools and technology to accommodate these species.

Veterinarian Client Patient Relationship (VCPR):

Veterinarian Client Patient Relationship (VCPR):

It is very important for a relationship to be developed between our Warrick veterinarians, our clients, and our patients. We require that the Veterinarian Client Patient Relationship (VCPR) is valid for the services listed above.

A VCPR is present when all of the following requirements are met:

  1. The veterinarian has assumed the responsibility for making clinical judgments regarding the health of the patient and the client has agreed to follow the veterinarians’ instructions.
  2. The veterinarian has sufficient knowledge of the patient to initiate at least a general or preliminary diagnosis of the medical condition of the patient. This means that the veterinarian is personally acquainted with the keeping and care of the patient by virtue of a timely examination of the patient by the veterinarian, or medically appropriate and timely visits by the veterinarian to the operation where the patient is managed.
  3. The veterinarian is readily available for follow-up evaluation or has arranged for the following: emergency referral and continuing care and treatment.
  4. The veterinarian provides oversight of treatment, compliance, and outcome.
  5. Patient records are maintained.

VCPR is established only when your veterinarian examines your animal in person, and is maintained by regular veterinary visits as needed to monitor your animal’s health. If a VCPR is established but your veterinarian does not regularly see your animal afterward, the VCPR is no longer valid and it would be illegal and unethical for your veterinarian to dispense or prescribe medications or recommend treatment without recently examining your animal. A valid VCPR cannot be established online, via email, or over the phone. However, once a VCPR is established, it may be able to be maintained between medically necessary examinations via telephone or other types of consultations; but it’s up to your veterinarian’s discretion to determine if this is appropriate and in the best interests of your animals’ health.

Our clinic policy for a valid VCPR is having seen your animals within the last year, whether that is a visit to your farm to discuss preventative and treatment plans or bringing some of your animals to the clinic for evaluation. As described above, we cannot legally or ethically prescribe medications without seeing the animals within the last year.
