Quality Care for Cattle & Herd Animals

Cattle and Herd Wellness


A quality preventive health care plan can address disease prevention and parasite control while increasing the growth and production rates of your herd to their maximum potential. Redstone Veterinary Hospital recognizes the importance of the family farm and the unique care cattle and herd animals require.

While the protocols of de-worming and vaccinations are quite customary, it is difficult to generalize about the needs of farm animals. With much of a treatment plan dependent on the surrounding environment, we meet with each of our clients on an individual basis to determine the best course of action for their herds.

As cattle and herd animals are more susceptible to exposure and disease, this initial consultation provides us a better understanding of the lifestyle and environment of your herd, making it easier to create a comprehensive health care plan.

Swine Health

Parasite control is often a main concern for our swine customers. For optimal results, it is best to combine a quality de-wormer with annual fecal exams. A good resource to address the challenges of raising pigs is the Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA), an agricultural trade association that represents more than 2,900 Illinois pork producers.

Contact us today to discuss your large animal and herd health needs. We will be happy to provide individual consultations in order to work with you on developing a treatment plan that meets all your animal health care needs.

The doctors and staff are so kind and compassionate, treating my pets and I with patience and respect. I feel they all truly understand that my pet is not just an animal, but a beloved family member.

I love coming to Redstone. They are always friendly, always have an answer to our questions, and our dog, Daisy, is always at ease when we come for a visit. This is an excellent hospital.

My dog is very well taken care of here, and he loves going in! We’ve been coming to Redstone for years and won’t go anywhere else. We are known by name, not appointment time.

Dr. Paczosa, Dr. Eisenman, Jean, and the rest of the staff are always so friendly and knowledgeable. We are always greeted by name, including our dogs! They do a great job keeping them happy.

I drive from Lincoln to bring my pets here, and have been coming for years. I have the utmost respect for the veterinarians at Redstone, especially after they saved my dog’s life.

I have never once second-guessed the care Oscar receives at Redstone. It doesn’t matter if I call them at 7:30 in the morning or 11:30 at night. I know he will always receive the best. Thank you!!
