Staff Member of the Month

By Scott Lackenby | Dated October 9, 2014

Hey gang! How are you all? We’re all keeping busy at GVH, we’ve had a heap of tick cases. You’ll be sick of me saying this, but PLEASE make sure you are applying tick prevention to your 4legged friend AND are checking for ticks EVERY DAY.

I’m pretty excited about tomorrow. Not only is it Vet Nurse Day when I take the time to make some of my fave humans feel extra special and loves, we also find out if Nurse Hollie has won Vet Nurse of the Year!! I don’t want to jinx her, but I’m super confidant she is going to win! Good luck Nurse Hollie! Whatever the outcome tomorrow, you’re a winner in my eyes.

Today I get to introduce you to the newest member of the GVH team and someone who already thinks I’m pretty awesome. Ladies and Gentleman, I would like to introduce you to Dr Genevieve Zhang, who started with us in August of this year. Dr Gen studied at Sydney University and graduated in 2009. After graduation she worked at a Vet in Willoughby for almost 4 years and then completed a 12month internship with the Small Animal Referral Hospital, SASH, where Dr Gen trained in surgery, medicine, ophthalmology and oncology which helped her to refine her knowledge to be practicing up-to-date and gold standard veterinary medicine. Dr Gen loves that being a Vet means she gets to build a relationship with both the pet and their owner through the process of diagnosing and treating them. Dr Gen says the best part of her job is seeing how that by doing her job well, she is able to make a difference to both owners and their pets by getting and keeping them healthy so they can continue to be much loved members of the family. Unfortunately, being a Vet also means seeing the circle of life from birth to death, and this is easily the worst part of the job according to Dr Gen. It’s always hard seeing an animal that is too sick to be cured, even with the best medical attention, and then having to say good bye to them.

Dr Gen has a post graduate certificate in surgery and also recently passed her exams to become a member in the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists, specifically in the area of surgery.

Dr Gen knew from the age of 7 that she wanted to be a Vet when her favourite thing to do was to spend time with her dogs. In high school, Dr Gen loved biology and the sciences helped steer her towards a career in Veterinary Medicine. Dr Gen’s first pet was a German Shepherd called Hobo who she describes as a much loved gentle giant. Today, she is the proud Mum of a 2year old black moggy cat, called Peanut, who she adopted as a 6week old stray, who is constantly hyperactive and entertaining. I think Peanut and I would get on very well! And a fun fact about Dr Gen, she speaks conversational Mandarin! I’m hoping she will teach me how to ask for dinner in Mandarin!!

So, next time you are in, be sure to keep an eye out for Dr Gen! Meows for now, love Joey xoxodr gen

I took our little girl Coco for her very first vet visit yesterday. Dr Helen gave Coco a thoroughly check-up and provided me with useful information as the first time puppy owner. Coco is now enrolled in the puppy school and will return back for her 2nd vaccine in a couple of week!

Dr David and the team have provided real care, support and expertise for our furry family members over 25 years. They've also readily taken in injured wildlife. A great team of Vets and nurses - thanks for all you do!

Quality care and advice at every visit. The staff are friendly and informative and genuinely care about your pets. I am 100% confident that my cat and dog always receive the best pet healthcare and as pet parents that's all we want.

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
