Dr Bill Roughan
Director & Senior Veterinarian
Bill was born and raised in Toogoolawah and has been a practicing veterinary surgeon since 2000. His speciality is equine dentistry, horse and cattle reproduction and small animal surgery. Bill started his veterinary career in far north QLD at a mixed practice in Charters Towers where he learnt to fly and spent 2 years working with some of the largest most successful beef producers in northern Australia. The Nth Qld live export game took him overseas to China then onto the UK. In England, Bill worked in numerous small animal and equine clinics for a number of years – and was even lucky enough to treat some of the Queen’s horses and Elton John’s ponies.
On returning home Bill began working in an equine dental practice in Grafton where he gained his dentistry skills and brought them back to the Brisbane Valley in 2006 when he opened Brisbane Valley Vets based in Toogoolawah. Blackbutt Veterinary Clinic officially opened in June 2010, and Crows Nest Veterinary Clinic in September 2014. Since then, we have combined the three clinics together under one name "South East Country Vets." Bill is an Australian Cattle Vets accredited Bull Tester and National Pregnancy Testing accredited examiner.
