BSc, DVM 2016

Emily joined the Whitehorse family in February 2021, and was quick to settle into the role as our senior surgical veterinarian.

Emily’s first job in the animal care industry was as a nurse, which was her part-time job while she was studying veterinary science. After graduating in 2016, she entered a busy general practice where she fell in love with all aspects of veterinary care. Surgery in particular became a passion, and Emily went on to complete a 12-month Surgical Internship in 2020.

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine 2016, Bachelor of Science 2012

Emily thrives in all aspects of being a veterinarian, from complex medical cases to welcoming new puppies and kittens into their families. However, she has a particular passion for all surgical procedures including soft tissue, abdominal, orthopaedic, and dental surgery.
