Business as usual: our operations and business hours are currently unaffected by COVID-19 restrictions. However our office door is kept locked and in-person sample deliveries should be placed in the white bucket outside the Parasite/Allfarm office door. Please call us if you have any questions: (03) 5979 4488.
Temporary phone number change: if you need to call us, please phone (03) 5979 4488 (Allfarm Animal Health). Unfortunately, recent changes to our phone system by Telstra have left us with serious technical issues. We're waiting on Telstra to fix the problem but don't know how many weeks that will take.
We provide parasite identification and laboratory diagnostic services to livestock producers. We advise on worm, fluke, coccidiosis and tapeworm burdens in sheep, cattle, horses, goats, alpaca, pigs and chickens. With one of our reply-paid testing kits it's easy to send us a worm test on your sheep, cattle, horses, goats, alpacas, or any other species of animal. We save you time and money by enabling you to drench only animals that need it. This stops animals from being exposed to chemicals unnecessarily and stopping worms from becoming drench-resistant, possibly causing you many problems. We can also identify the algae growing in your dams and identify parasites, spiders and insects that are bothering you.
See the Lab Notices section for information on operating hours during Public Holidays.
