Vet-Mec Animal Health Products
In September 2017, we started stocking the Vet-Mec range of animal health products from Australian company Chem-Vet. We will be taking these products along with us to a number of upcoming field days and trade shows throughout 2018. In addition, these products will be available both on our Website (currently the Injectable and Dog Wormer have been uploaded onto our Web Site, the balance will be added over the next few weeks) and in our new retail store at 575 Midland Highway, Huntly. We have based our prices off Chem-Vet’s direct pricing (no extra mark-up), so if you already use these products you can simply buy them from whichever supplier is most convenient for you.
