Over my career I’ve met many clients and patients who have found a visit to the vet to be an anxious experience.
When pets are stressed it can be challenging for veterinarians to obtain accurate measurements, such as blood pressure, heart rate and blood glucose levels. This has important implications for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions, such as Diabetes Mellitus and cardiomyopathies. As a vet and pet owner I understand that most of our pets are happier at home, surrounded by the humans that love them. Having a home veterinary visit can reduce the stress that some pets experience when they receive veterinary attention.
I graduated from The University of Queensland in 1998. In 2001 I attained Membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in Small Animal Internal Medicine. I have had a long association with The University of Queensland Vet School in various roles including clinician, teacher and clinical researcher. My clinical research on Canine Pancreatitis has been recognised and published at Australian and International Veterinary conferences. I currently provide part-time tutoring at the Vet School in the Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Bachelor of Science Veterinary Technology degrees.
I am pet owner to Sally, the Border Collie, Skeet, the 17 year old diabetic cat, Biggie Shackleton the 3 year old chocolate Labrador and six chickens.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
