Hello, I'm Dr Katie
I'm a vet and behaviourist and I have the most fantastic job in the world. I love helping owners with their pet's behaviour problems. No two pets are the same, so my job is never dull. I get really excited when I see the improvements we can make and see how this changes the whole family dynamic. The cats and dogs we help start living their best life and their family really get to enjoy their company without the frustrations of behaviour problems
I graduated from The University of Sydney in 1994 and started working as a small animal vet. I love learning so I went back to uni part-time and graduated with a Masters in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery from Murdoch University. I like a juicy challenge, so I started working in a referral Emergency Hospital and loved that for 8 years. By the time I moved back to general practice, I noticed a huge increase in behaviour issues impacting our pets' everyday welfare and affecting the relationships in families. So more studies - and I now have my memberships in Behaviour from the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons, I'm an internationally accredited Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant, Associate Certified Cat Behaviour Consultant, I'm an Elite Fear Free Certified Professional and currently studying a Diploma of Animal Behaviour Science and Technology and Dog Mediation Training. I a self confessed behaviour nerd and want to give you the most current, best practice information.. I really love helping pets and their families sort out the problems and build great relationships. And I also work in a zoo and get to work on exotic pet behaviour problems.
Please tell me about your pet's behaviour problems.
We provide convenient housecall consultations in Sydney and regional visits periodically available.
