...Our BIG news!
We are VERY excited to announce that after several years in the pipeline, Townsend Veterinary Clinic has been awarded the prestigious "Hospital of Excellence" accreditation! There are only 13 other such practices in New South Wales, and only 56 in Australia. We are the only accredited practice between Melbourne and Canberra.
The ASAV Hospital Accreditation Scheme recognises companion animal practices that achieve the highest levels of quality health care and practice management in innovative, state-of-the-art hospital facilities. This title recognises that we meet the highest standards of diagnostics, surgery, laboratory services and nursing for the animals in our care. Accredited hospitals set a benchmark to inspire other small animal practitioners when assessing their own facilities and standards.
This accreditation is difficult to achieve, involving review of medical records and all policies and procedures, as well as a very detailed inspection and interview process. Our success reflects the commitment of all the staff to the clinic, our clients and our patients.
With this accreditation in place, you can be assured that your pet is receiving the highest quality of veterinary care available. We remain proudly privately owned, and are now even more passionate about what we bring to the community. We are looking forward to the official awards ceremony in Darwin in August (pending travel restrictions!). Time to celebrate!

We are committed to providing the highest standards of care, and you can always rely on us to recommend what is best for your pet.
The Townsend Veterinary Clinic team is small and close-knit, and continuity of care is our priority. The practice is owned by Veterinarian Dr. Shelley Wiltshire and Veterinary Nurse Kim Hawley.
Our vets are highly experienced and all have a love of constant learning and professional development. Our nurses are qualified, registered and experienced, and have all undertaken additional training. We are a group of dedicated professionals with the common goal of making pets happy and healthy.
We treat each animal as an individual, formulating a health plan with your full involvement. With our country approachability, you will feel comfortable and well-informed. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our local practice.
