<p>A tableland veterinary clinic started operation in Malanda in 1952 and was originally operated as a branch practice from Townsville (it was the only veterinary clinic north of Townsville for a many years). Tableland Veterinary Service officially began operation in 1977. Bill Tranter and Ian Hosie began their current partnership in 1978 and have worked together as business partners for an amazing 35 years. Frank Condon joined the partnership in 2002 and Tamara Olley-Dredge in 2011. Since 1977 more than fifty veterinarians have worked in the practice supported over the years by many dedicated nurses, receptionists, office staff and technicians. Hundreds of veterinary students have also undertaken part of their veterinary training within the practice.</p> <p>Tableland Veterinary Service has a simple mission statement: &ldquo;Caring for the needs of all animals&rdquo;. It means what it says, no animal is too small or large or too fragile or scary, or too far away, that it does not need veterinary care at some time. From large corporate beef cattle properties that we provide management advice to, to the cats, or dogs, small mice, lizards or wildlife that people have brought to us for care, our mission is to provide care for the needs of all these animals.</p> <p>Tableland Veterinary Service now provides veterinary care for all animals, belonging to clients from the Atherton Tableland, west to the gulf, north to Weipa and east to the coast, with veterinary clinics in Atherton, Malanda, Charters Towers, Ravenshoe, Gordonvaleand Weipa. Our facilities include both small animal and large animal hospitals, with a world class cattle facility and registered equine hospital in Malanda.<br /> Our practice is also involved with veterinary student training through a collaborative arrangement with James Cook University. Tableland Veterinary Service also provides a complete merchandise service for all species through its alliance with the National Rural Independents.</p> <p>Tableland Veterinary Service&rsquo;s mission statement is caring for the needs of all animals. We are committed to the highest standard of care for all species.</p>

Best of all &ndash; it doesn&rsquo;t require a big pump to run.<br /> You may have noticed one set up on the western side of town on some newly planted Lucerne but this is one that was set up on a horse farm.
