Staff member Kanny

We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest team member, Kanny. 

Kanny is our latest vet assistant superstar and vet nurse in the making. She loves all things plants and joined us at Pet Doctor ready to learn as much as she could within the veterinary industry! 

After working in hospitality for the past 6 years, Kanny was looking for a change and her love for animals led her to pursue a career in vet nursing. She has already completed her Certificate 2 in Animal Studies, but says, “this is only the beginning for me”. 

Kanny loves that her role can at times be challenging, but mostly, that she gets to care for such adorable animals. She also loves the daily interaction she gets to have with clients and that there is never a boring moment at the clinic. 

“It’s been amazing getting to meet our patients and learn about the different instruments and equipment being used day-to-day.”

Outside of work Kanny is a huge plant addict, and loves spending time at home or exploring beaches with her adopted greyhound, Pam! 

She found Pam during her Certificate 2 studies at the Gilles Plains TAFE. The TAFE runs a foster-to-adopt program for the greyhounds in which you can foster a greyhound for up to 8 weeks before deciding if you would like to adopt it or not. Kanny only had Pam for 1 week before knowing that she was the perfect addition to her family. It was one of those amazing, it was meant to be moments, and her and her partner have never looked back. 

Kanny has been an absolute dream addition to the Pet Doctor team. Be sure to say hello to her during your next visit to the clinic. If you’re lucky, she might even tell you how to resurrect the dying Fiddle Leaf plant you have sitting in your living room 😉
