Dr Emma Hoolihan

B.Sc (Vet Biosc), DVM (Hons) Adelaide

This is second time around for Emma, having initially worked for us whilst completing her veterinary degree at University of Adelaide. After graduation, she spent twelve months doing a surgery internship at a specialty practice in Melbourne. After finishing, Emma was keen to return to South Australia and we were delighted to be able to bring her back to the Gawler Animal Hospital family!

Having started her uni career as a died-in-the-wool horse person, Emma has had a complete career transormation and is now committed to small animal practice. Although surgery is still her prime interest, she’s really keen on all aspects of practice and was delighted to join back in to a place that gives her the opportunity to learn and grow her (already extensive) skills and knowledge.

Outside of work, she is still a horse person but also loves cats. With her partner, Jake, Emma lives in the Adelaide Hills and loves the lifestyle there. Speaking of Jake, he recently did the right thing and proposed. Luckily Emma accepted and so Jake is now her fiance!
