Large Animal & Livestock Services

Large Animal & Livestock Services

At Tylertown Animal Hospital, we provide a variety of large animal services. Cattle, horses, pigs and goats are just some of the large animal breeds we diagnose and treat. 

Some services include but are not limited to:

Pregnancy Testing

We understand that reproductive ability and efficiency is important to you as a livestock owner. We can help you determine pregnancy status early on to ensure the health of the mother and offspring as well as effective economic management of your herd.

Have questions or need not set an appointment for pregnancy testing an animal? Give us a call at 601-876-2282.

Bull Semen Testing 

About 20% of bulls tested are sub-fertile—and as a livestock owner, that could cost you serious money. At , we can help you determine breeding soundness with bull semen testing, which includes:

  • rectal exam
  • testicular palpation
  • assessing scrotal circumference
  • electroejaculation and assessment of semen structure 

If you have questions or want to set up testing for an animal, please give us a call at 601-876-2282.

Castration (Bovine)

Efficient herd management includes castration of some male calves, and at Tylertown Animal Hospital, we provide experienced surgical castration services. 

In addition to being the safest and most humane method of castration, the surgical option gives you the assurance that both testicles were removed completely. Our veterinarians will ensure that your animal is well cared for throughout the procedure and provide post-operative monitoring and care instruction as needed.

Equine Coggins & Export

Rodeo stock, performance horses and other equines traveling in the U.S. need Coggins testing for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA). Many competitions, sales and events also require a current negative Coggins as the disease is spread through the blood of infected animals by biting insects who then carry the disease from horse to horse.

Tylertown Animal Hospital offers this testing. We’ll be happy to send the papers in or you can take them for in-person delivery.

Teeth Floating

Removing sharp points will make it easier for your horse to chew more thoroughly. As the horse moves its lower jaw to the side in the chewing motion it stretches its cheeks and the cheeks are pulled more tightly against the teeth edges. Sharp, cutting points that are cutting sores in the cheeks will cause horses to eat more cautiously and not masticate the food as effectively as they will when the cheeks can be comfortably stretched across the cheek teeth. Dropping hay and feed are common signs of excessively sharp teeth.

Equine dental ‘Floating” has been recognized as necessary for dental and oral health for a long time and the positive effects are obvious to those who have seen horses cut and lacerate their mouths just trying to eat or while trying to perform with a bit in their mouth. Do your horses a favor by having their teeth floated regularly.
