Charters Towers became part of Tableland Veterinary Service in 2012. Prior to this it has had a long and illustrious history as a mixed practice, servicing both the extensive beef industry throughout Northern Australia and the local horse and small animal clientele. The mission statement of Charters Towers Veterinary Service is “caring for the needs of all animals”.
