Central Veterinary Services has recently moved into the vacated purpose-built premises at 102 Darling Street.

Under the management and guidance of Associate Professor Paul Cusack the team at Central Veterinary Services will provide excellent veterinary care for both pets and livestock.  

Central Veterinary Services (CVS) has secured local veterinarian, Dr. Lydia Herbert, an experienced mixed practitioner.

In addition, James Cook University graduate, Dr. Marine Venter, will be starting at CVS in the new year.

Experienced veterinarian and a familiar face, Dr. Madeleine Brady, just returned from working overseas will be working as a locum for the remainder of 2017.

Clients will also be pleased to find the experienced team of vet nurse, Dani Tysoe, and administrative staff, Katy Oliver and Deenita Mitchell.

These support staff have a total of 56 years’ experience and clients familiar with 102 Darling Street will be well acquainted with their compassion and quality of care.

The veterinarians at Central Veterinary Services are mixed practitioners, and therefore able to service the requirements of all pets and production animals.

In addition, Dr. Lydia Herbert has experience and expertise with sheep medicine and production, and runs a Poll Dorset stud with her partner on the family farm near Eugowra.

Dr. Marine Venter has a strong grounding in cattle medicine and production from her training at James Cook University, Townsville.

It is the goal of Central Veterinary Services to provide for the needs of companion animals, but in addition, under the stewardship of Associate Professor Cusack, CVS will expand the services provided in the areas of health, reproduction, and nutrition, with cattle and sheep.

As an example of this commitment, CVS has purchased the newest model BCF Bovine Pregnancy Diagnosis Ultrasound.

The use of this technology, in conjunction with expertise in manual palpation, allows the CVS vet team to provide rapid, accurate pregnancy diagnosis.

However, the team can also advise clients on any unusual findings, vaccination programmes, nutrition and general reproduction management.

Further, during this period of transition to the more structured biosecurity and welfare requirements of the Livestock Production Assurance progamme, the CVS vet team are also perfectly positioned to assist producers to construct meaningful biosecurity and welfare plans, with the user-friendly Biocheck Programme.

Associate Professor Cusack commented that a visit to Central Veterinary Services at 102 Darling Street would be more like a homecoming for clients and their pets rather than a visit to a new vet practice.

Central Veterinary Services takes a team approach to the health management of all companion and production animals, pooling the considerable experience and expertise of all vets and all lay staff.
