About Equine Vet Services

Equine Vet Services is a locally owned and operated company servicing the Townsville and surrounding areas. Dr Sarah Townsend opened Equine Vet Services in April of 2020 after having some time off to grow her family. After 2 years of working 2 jobs, Dr Sarah decided it was time to go out on her own, and share her passion for preventative veterinary care, to keep your horses as healthy as can be. Dr Sarah has a special interest in Equine Dentistry and over the last 8 years has attended multiple courses and programs to further her knowledge, and now provides both routine and advanced dental services for horses. In July of 2022 Sarah will sit her membership exams in Equine Dentistry through the Australian and New Zealand College for Veterinary Scientists.

"Reliable and Great Communication"

I have chosen Sarah as my regular vet because I can rely on her to be thorough in her examinations of my horses and she communicates clearly and simply what she has found and what the treatment plan will be.

I always feel confident to text Sarah if I am worried about any aspect of the treatment plan, because I know she will reply to me very quickly. This is important to me because I want to make sure I am providing the best care I can for my horses.

Sarah is also organised and reliable in her practice. If she is running late she will always text and let me know.

"Wonderful Pre-emptive Care"

I’ve been using Sarah for 6 years now. It is clear she is passionate about pre-emptive care to prevent health complications down the track and she loves to share her knowledge. She has always been thorough, especially in her dental work and I can rest assured my horses are getting a thorough check-up with every single visit. Each visit she has made upgrades to her business whether it be new equipment or courses to further her knowledge. She's a great vet and a wonderful person so I recommend her to anyone needing a vet.
