Aspen Veterinary Service is a mobile veterinary business dedicated to preserving a country way of life, and promoting general farm animal health and production.  The species of choice is cattle, but all livestock can be treated by Aspen Veterinary Service.



Owners have the option of purchasing vaccines and administering them to their own animals, or having a veterinarian make a farm call for a general wellness exam and vaccine administration.  The only exception is Brucellosis vaccines to heifers which requires a farm call, and rabies vaccine to any livestock.



A specialty offered is artificial insemination of cattle, goats, and swine.  Some reproductive work in horses is also offered, and a modern ultrasound machine is available for use on all types of livestock.  Aspen Veterinary Service also offers:

Pregnancy diagnosis for most species

Egg incubation for most poultry types

Frozen semen storage of all species
