Hormone implants - any recommended vets in the South-West? in Chickens, Eggs and Hatching Posted November 20, 2015 Hello all, I wonder if anyone can recommend a vet in the south-west who would be willing to administer Suprelorin hormone implants? There seems to be a growing reluctance to use these - our (otherwise brilliant) vet says he no longer prescribe them due to the risk of affected eggs being fed to pregnant women. Our girls haven't laid an edible egg for about a year so there's not much chance of that! In the same breath he says he thinks the implants are worth considering as they help to prevent peritonitis and are likely to extend the little girls' lives. Anyway, any recommendations would be gratefully received. I'm based in always-sunny Weston-Super-Mare but I'm willing to travel. Many thanks, Rob.
