Veterinarian B.Sc (Vet Biosc), DVM (Hons) Adelaide
Alyssa has been at Gawler Animal Hospital for 10 years. She came for a placement during her studies, and by the end of the 2 weeks, had a job offer and hasn’t looked back since!
If you try and pin down Alyssa’s veterinary interests, she’ll quickly reply ‘everything’! She has a natural talent for Surgery and is the go-to person for Skin, Ophthalmology and Dentistry cases as a result of her additional studies. She also has a particular love for Pharmacology (the study of drugs) because it opens up a world of treatment options for her patients.
Alyssa grew up in the country and clients love her down to earth nature and open approach. She feels strongly that her job is not only to look after her patients, but their owners too. Further to this, she truly enjoys taking the time to build relationships with her clients so she can learn how to best help
them and has a bit of fun in the process – indeed it is not uncommon to hear cheeky laughter coming from her consulting room on a regular basis!
Outside of work, Alyssa has a household of boys to look after; Finn (4), Hayden (1) and Matt (35… her Husband). Alyssa met Matt about 15years ago in Smoky Bay where he was an oyster farmer. He has since requalified as a Carpenter and is now an owner of a local business in Gawler.
