Meet our Talented Team

The team at Terang and Mortlake Veterinary clinic are dedicated to providing excellence in veterinary care for all animals. Our companion animal vets work with you to provide routine care through to emergency intervention when required. Our large animal vets provide fast and reliable ambulatory care for dairy and beef herds alongside whole herd health management programs designed to boost productivity and profits on farm.  Alongside staff from Southwest Equine, our vets cater for equine work from racing interests through to pony club mounts. Our support staff from our experienced nursing team through to our administration and reception teams bring vital skills to all aspects of our work. Drop in and say hello next time you visit Terang or Mortlake.
