Welcome to the Whiskey River family! I am so glad that you have found us and chosen a natural, non-invasive, drug free rehabilitative path for the animals in your life. Whiskey River Animal Health is a small business with my HQ in Northern NSW at the beautiful ‘Whiskey River Ranch’. I hold qualifications in Therapeutic Animal Acupuncture, Equine Sports Massage, Reiki, a Bachelors degree in Education and am undergoing qualifications in Nutrition and Cranio Sacral Therapy.

Whiskey River  has been established for 12 years and I pride myself on the recommendations that we receive from Canine Orthopaedic specialists, Equine and Canine Vets and the reviews and success stories I have from my wonderful, long term clients. I am the referring therapist for multiple progressive veterinary practices in both the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers. Among them are Greencross Robina and North Coast Veterinary Surgery and Murwillumbah Veterinary. 

My passion lies in finding a blend between East and West with both medical systems working together to achieve wellness. Being a horse rider my entire life and growing up with a huge passion for animals great and small; I treat all my fuzzy clients as family. On our Ranch we have our beautiful horses (Occy, Whiskey, River & Cash) Our two charismatic minis (Barney and Garry). We also have our gorgeous retrievers (Nashville, Indiana and Austen, Camille, Charlotte, Winnie and Maggie) as well as our herd of Highland Cattle! 

Along with my own animals; Whiskey River Ranch is home to many agisted and spelling horses as well as provides a facility for me to take on long term therapy stay horses which require intensive therapy. 

When you come to Whiskey River you are being put in knowledgable and caring hands. Your animal’s health and wellbeing is my first priority and I work very closely with you to create a program where your animal can experience a pain free, mobile life and increased performance. This is a owner-operated business and you will always deal with me for bookings, treatment and follow up. 

Please do not hesitate to contact my office if you feel that you require any further information in order to help your animal reach their wellness goals. 

Warmest Regards,

Tamara Young
