Veterinarian Dr Alistair Grant of the Don Crosby Veterinary Surgery in Narromine, made the trip out to the Condobolin showgrounds last week to treat some local creatures feeling the effects of our lack of local veterinary staff.

His visit to Condobolin brought a great response, with the day being completely booked out with appointments weeks before his arrival.

The main casualties for the day were horses, with a range of work to be done including vaccinations, freeze branding and general checkups.

Dr Grant came fully prepared with everything from a digital x-ray machine and equine dental gear to endoscopy and ultrasound facilities.

Veterinarian and spokesperson for the Don Crosby Veterinary Surgery, Sara Falkiner said, “we would like to be able to service the Condobolin area as we realise the difficulties encountered by the locals with not having a local vet.

“The Narromine Veterinary Hospital already services several Condobolin clients, so it seemed logical after the closure of the Condobolin Vet Clinic to work out how best to service this area and ensure that Condobolin can still access veterinary services.

“This visit will be followed by another visit in a few weeks. We would like to be able to offer this as a regular service” she said.
