BVSc (Hons), Graduate Diploma of Veterinary Clinical Studies, MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine & Surgery)
Lan graduated from the University of Sydney in 1996. After working in Canberra for 2 years, Lan completed a surgical internship at a specialist centre, a Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Clinical Studies, and a residency in small animal medicine at Sydney University. She also has memberships in small animal surgery and medicine from ANZCVS. Lan was a head veterinarian of a small animal veterinary hospital in Sydney, before relocating home to Melbourne.
Lan’s areas of interest are endocrine (hormone dysfunction), neurology, soft tissue surgery and preventative medicine.
Lan is passionate about providing first-class veterinary care for her patients and their owners. The most exciting part of coming to work for her is that there are never two days that are the same. Every day is different, with different patients with different predicaments and meeting different people. Her patients forgive her as long as there is a reward at the end, and she loves that they never complain about being hugged and cheers her up on the busiest and most stressful day.
Lan finds the most rewarding part of being a Vet is to be able to relieve an animal from pain or to see a formerly too-sick-to-eat dog hungrily eating a bowl of food, or to see a cat with a of life-threatening urinary obstruction can now urinate with ease.
Lan believes she has The Best Job in the World!!
