Dr. Shannon joined The Dog Clinic team two years ago, having moved to Hobart following three years working in a busy small animal practice in Melbourne. Originally hailing from sunny Brisbane, she graduated in Veterinary Science from the University of Queensland in 2004 with Honors and began her working life as a dairy cow vet in the colder climate of Warrnambool in Southern Victoria.
Shannon has managed to travel widely with her career, working in various veterinary clinics across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom over the last eleven years. She has centered her practice solely in the area of small animals over the last six years and has relished the opportunity to further focus her veterinary care on dogs at Australia’s first canine-only veterinary clinic.
Shannon is joined in Hobart by her partner and two young children. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, gardening, camping and hiking and she tries to get away as much as possible to explore Tasmanias’ beautiful outdoors.
Shannon is looking forward to meeting you and your canine family members at The Dog Clinic soon!
Dr. Cathy has been with us at The Dog Clinic since mid 2017. She graduated from Melbourne University in 1993 and worked in Melbourne for 11 years before coming to Tassie for a lifestyle change. Over the years, as well as the usual conferences and short courses, she has undertaken several year long continuing education courses; in dermatology, oncology and internal medicine.
Dermatology remains Dr. Cathy’s primary passion in the veterinary field!
Cathy is co-parent to a three legged, one eyed Kelpie called Ruse (as in trick), who loves chasing plovers and barking!
In her spare time she loves to sail, kayak, ride and rock climb.
If you haven’t yet met our delightful Cathy yet, please pop in to say hi!
