Your Vet Team
Hi, I'm Dr Tegan. I have joined Toowong Family Vet to fulfil my passion of helping pets lead happier and healthier lives! I graduated with first class honours from the University of Queensland in 2006 and have been working as a Vet for the last seven years, in Adelaide, the UK and around Brisbane.
I grew up on the Sunshine Coast just outside of Eumundi where I developed my passion for animals, with a menagerie of pets including a horse, birds and many cats and dogs.
Currently I own a mischeivous cat named Keshi and a boisterous one year old Labrador named Lila! My particular interests are in challenging medical cases, particularly those involving our feline friends. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, travelling and walking my Labrador, Lila.
Hi, I'm Tahlia! I've been in the industry for nearly 10 years, starting out my days as a doggy bather and professional chit-chatter. I loved my Saturday bath-sesh so much, that over the next 12 months, I worked my way up to a permanent nursing position within the practice. I've always considered my animals as part of the family, and understand the intricate role that our pets play in our day-to-day life. It's probably this reason that the lovely Dr Kirsty and I clicked when we first met on the Gold Coast a few years ago, and vowed to some day open a practice together.
I particularly enjoy giving kisses, massages and treaties to our patients. Usually accompanied with a 'cute', 'handsome' or 'sweet' and known to refer to patients as 'sausage' or 'chicken', I love the day-to-day happenings within the clinic. I also have a bit of a soft spot for the oldies - the nanny and grandad cats and dogs that come in, all grey-haired and with their slow-paced swagger.
I have always dreamt of being a part of a new clinic. To be a part of something that not only enables me to do what I love every day, but create somewhere you can come and feel at ease. Where your pet is comfortable - whether it be for a cuddle and a treat, or check up or surgery. I'm so proud of what we have created, and believe what we can provide for you and your furry family members is not only second to none, but above all – genuine. We don’t just focus on doing the best, but what is best for you, and most importantly - your furry friend.
So always feel free to pop in with your little one and say hi - our doors are open and pockets filled with treaties!
Hi, my name is Marie. I’m one of the nurses at Toowong Family Vet. I started my career as a dog groomer about 3 years ago but soon realised I wanted something different. I knew from an early age that animals, in particular dogs and cats, were my passion so I decided to pursue a career in Veterinary nursing. And how I LOVE my job! I’m currently studying my certificate IV in Veterinary nursing as well as being a full time staff member of Toowong Family Vet. I treat every animal like my own and I have in the past been known to try to dog or cat-nap my patients (without any success I might add).
I’m the proud owner of Abey the hyper Staffy, Bambam the goofy Labradoodle and Sven the pesky Devon Rex cat who take up all my spare time and leftover cuddles. I’m looking forward to meeting all of the local furries and their families.
See you soon down at the vet.
