The current clinic and large animal hospital in Malanda was established in 1982 and has gone through two major renovations in 1996 and in 2008. In 2008, a registered equine hospital and surgery and a large undercover cattle facility were completed.

The clinic in Malanda is a state of the art veterinary facility. It can service the needs of all its other practices and clients as well as providing a world class teaching facility for final year veterinary students from James Cook University. Eight veterinarians work from the Malanda clinic and service large areas of North Queensland.
