Lake View Veterinary Services provides large animal care to local cow/calf and dairy producers. We have a complete haul in facility that includes a Silencer hydraulic chute for routine cattle work at the clinic. We also have a portable hydraulic cattle chute that we can take to the farm when required. Dr. Bettin has a portable ultrasound that can be used for early pregnancy diagnosis and reproductive health assessment.
In addition, we have a hospital ward dedicated to the treatment of scour calves and a plasma bank used to treat calves for failure of passive transfer. Failure of passive transfer (calves that did not get enough colostrum) is the one of the most common conditions we see in young calves. We have specialized equipment to test calves for this condition, and the plasma needed to successfully treat them.
Dr Bettin was born and raised on a cow/calf operation located just north of Lake View. He has always enjoyed livestock and the people that raise them. Anyone raised around cows understands that this is a "condition" that has no cure, and he plans on working on cows for the rest of his career.
