Perri, our office manager, has been a Veterinary Nurse since 2007 and is the only qualified stem cell technician in this part of the state.

She is the hub around which the vets, patients, clients and other staff at the clinic revolve around. She is our chief organiser and somehow remembers every person, dog, cat and rat that comes in through the doors. 

Perri has 3 wonderful dogs at home – her staffy Freddie who was brought into the clinic as a stray at 8 weeks old, Sassy who has recently had a DNA test done and is officially a Wolfhound X Great Dane X Boxer, and Baby staffy Willow who was the flower girl at Perri’s wedding.


Kylie has been at the clinic as a Veterinary Nurse since 1995, and is our longest standing employee. She is famous for her racing Greyhounds and her success on the track has been through the dogs Princess Honcho and Awesome Partner, or more recently Romba and Cool Fusion.

She is our head vet nurse and also looks after Tafe vet nursing and school students.
