Our Services.

Greencross Vets Willows/Kirwan offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services to cater for all your pet care needs utilising the latest diagnostic equipment.


Getting your pet desexed (neutered or spayed) is essential to their health. All Greencross Vets facilities are completely sterile and use the latest in surgical equipment.


Prevention is the best medicine. Kitten and puppy vaccinations (injections) and adult pet vaccinations prevent disease. Get your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm can be hard to detect, but it needn’t be hard to prevent. Greencross Vets recommends year round heartworm prevention. Ask your vet about prevention today.


Greencross Vets offer a range of dentistry services like cat and dog teeth cleaning. Consider us your pet’s veterinarian and dentist combined.



An ultrasound is a painless diagnostic procedure that allows vets to take a closer look at your pet’s health. We only use the latest technology for the most accurate diagnoses.



Greencross Vets clinics are equipped with high-quality radiograph equipment including X-ray machines, automatic processors, and X-ray view equipment.

Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology allows our vets to analyse and diagnose health conditions. Common laboratory tests include blood tests, urinalysis, faecal tests and biopsy examination.


Laboratory Testing

The latest in-house laboratory equipment allows our vets to perform a range of diagnostic tests to achieve accurate, rapid diagnosis of your pets’ health status.

Meet The Team

Dr Wendy Smith

I have a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and have been with Greencross Vets for 20 years now. I love my job because I enjoy making a diagnosis and seeing the patients respond well to their treatments. I also love the interaction with clients and my fellow Willows team members. I enjoy being outdoors triathlon training, running and swimming. I also love spending quality time with my family and my naughty Staffy named Sam.

I graduated from the first batch of veterinary students to leave James Cook University in 2010. I have since worked around Australia and spent a few years overseas in the Caribbean and China.

My passion is helping animals and I get joy from seeing them go home healthy to their owners.

In my own time I try to get outdoors as much as possible, and will go hiking and exploring around the Townsville region. I also enjoy fishing and keeping healthy.

Hi, my name is Jessika. I started my internship with Greencross Vets at the start of 2022.

I have completed my Bachelor of Science however decided on a career change. I have always loved being around animals, so veterinary nursing is perfect for me, I couldn’t think of a better line of work to be in!

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family and friends, fishing and watching the football!

Hi, my name is Monique and I started at Greencross Vets as an intern in 2019. I have had a passion for helping animals from a young age, and have always aspired to work with animals.

Both members of my fur family came into the Willows clinic as strays.
