At the Gippsland Veterinary Group we offer painless calf dehorning for your calves. Our experienced team of technicians and veterinarians sedate the calves, place local anaesthetic blocks and then use gas cautery to dehorn the calves. Afterwards calves are given more long lasting pain relief and checked for extra teats and hernias. Other calf management procedures like vaccination, ear tagging and castration can be performed while the calves are asleep.
