meet the vet
After graduating from The University of Queensland in 1998, I worked in mixed practice for twelve months then commenced an internship at UQ Vet clinic St Lucia. In 2001 I attained Membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in Small Animal Internal Medicine. Since then, I have had many roles within the Vet School including clinician, radiographer, lecturer, tutor, and researcher. My work there continues to this day on a casual basis, in the form of lectures, surgery practicals and examination of overseas veterinarians seeking Australian registration.
Six years ago, I started a mobile veterinary service in Brisbane. During this time, it became clear that a home vet visit was a much less stressful experience for most pets than a visit to a clinic. A home vet visit is never more important than at the end of a beloved pet’s life.
I have a deep commitment to ensuring that the final vet visit is as relaxed and comfortable and as free from stress as possible. When it can be done, euthanasia for pets is best provided in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by those who love them.
