Project Description

Dr Samantha Richards

I completed my Veterinary degree at JCU in Townsville, before starting my career as a mixed practice Veterinarian in regional NSW.  My favourite part about being a vet is waking up each morning and never knowing what the day may bring. I enjoy helping all different sizes of animals. In early 2021 I decided to move back to my hometown of Mackay and joined the team at Better Pet Vets. I have a strong passion for soft tissue surgery and reuniting critically ill patients back with their families. I also have a sneaky soft spot for guinea pigs and providing gold standard healthcare for these little fluff balls.  I am a guinea pig parent so understand the impact these little creatures make in our lives.

When not at work I enjoy spending time with my horses, competing in Endurance and Working Equitation, and going on adventures and exploring the area with my fiancé and two dogs.
