Dr Georgina Lowson BVSc Hons.

I graduated from University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science in 1996 with first class honours. Since graduating I have worked in many practices including a small animal/equine practice in Victoria before traveling and working in Hong Kong and then the United Kingdom to work in small animal practice for many years. Upon return to Australia I worked as a locum in emergency practice at University of Melbourne and later a large inner city small animal practice in Melbourne before venturing back to Brisbane.

I have now worked at Yeronga Veterinary Surgery since 2012 and have had the privilege to work with a great team of vets, nurses and receptionists and other support staff to provide a high standard of care to the pet owning community.

Over the past 22 years I have continued with my education doing multiple Sydney University distance post graduate courses in small animal internal medicine, small animal surgery and most recently thoracic and abdominal radiology. I have also done many smaller courses, conferences and seminars in small animal anaesthetics, analgesia, trauma, emergency medicine and dentistry just to name a few, to keep my knowledge and skills up to date.

Outside of work I am kept very busy with my husband and 2 daughters often enjoying various equestrian pursuits, the hobby we all share. We also enjoy being active outdoors bushwalking and camping when we can. As far as our extended family goes we adopted two kittens through the Yeronga Kitten Adoption program and have named them Jemima and Tiddles and of course our 3 horses Dash, Sassy and Archie.

Dr Lisca Martinez BVSc

I joined the Yeronga Vet Surgeons team in 2011, I was only working Saturdays as I was a full time Mother. In 2014 I started working part time. I really love our clients and patients, as when they come in they always have amazing stories of courage, bravery, honour and love. They each have unique stories!

As a Veterinarian we are always learning new things every day, whether it be surgical or medical. I find every aspect of vet science interesting and enjoy every part of it! This is why I have not gone down the path of specialising in a particular part of vet science.

As my passion is for the love of animals, I have many of my own at home who keep me busy when I’m not at work. Elton is an eleven year old Abyssinian, he gets to do his own thing throughout the day, but loves to pick a fight with Roger. Roger is a two year old Boxer, he loves to play and enjoys long walks along the beach. I also have chooks, their names are Cherry, Snowy and Batman and they love dirt baths. After caring for the animals I also enjoy my hobbies, cooking, diving, yoga and music.

Dr Simone Flint BVSc Hons.

I graduated from the University of Queensland in 1997, and started out my veterinary career in a specialist bird clinic. I then headed overseas and worked as a vet locum in the UK for 18 months, where I became acquainted with all manner of small furry critters, such as hamsters, chinchillas and rabbits.

After having my own family, I returned to part time work at Yeronga Vet Surgery in 2014. I love the variety of things we get to see as a veterinarian: A day can jump from a skin consultation on a rat, to a dental on a cat in the space of minutes! There’s always something to keep our minds busy and engaged. I enjoy both the jigsaw puzzle of a complicated medical case and hands-on surgical cases.

As well as my human family, my fur family is made up of Annie the elderly border terrier and Squirrel and Pippin, two delightful ‘ferals’ that came into the clinic as strays and we rehomed through the cat adoption program.

Outside the clinic, my passions involve keeping fit, camping, bushwalking and cycling outdoors, and music, reading, cooking and needlepoint at home.

We have an amazing team at Yeronga Vet Surgery, and absolutely wonderful clients. It is fantastic to work with beautiful patients and committed owners to get the best outcome for their pets.

Nhi Luu

Hi, I’m Nhi.
I joined the Yeronga Vet team in 2018 as a trainee and completed my Vert IV in Vet Nursing in 2019. I enjoy everything about Yeronga Vet, particularly, the great care that all staff contribute to for our furry clients and their parents. I am passionate about providing a high standard of care to our patients and will strive for that in the coming years. I am hoping to move out of my home (along with my two cats, Nala & Taro) and have my own living area to become a foster carer for kittens and help make a difference to their lives.

Charlotte Viccars

Hi I’m Charlotte, I started at Yeronga vet as a trainee and completed my certificate 4 in veterinary nursing at the end of 2013. Since then I have been working for Yeronga vet. I am passionate about animals and have a high standard of patient care. I always look forward to meeting new clients and their pets. When I’m not at work I love hanging out with my furry family, Winston the cat and my new puppy Loki.

Kerry Cairns

Kerry joined Yeronga Vet Surgery in 2007. Prior to beginning her nursing career, Kerry worked in Pharmacy as a dispensary technician. Kerry has always been passionate about animal health and welfare and this lead her to a career change to veterinary nursing.

Kerry enjoys all aspects of Vet nursing with her favourites being anaesthetics and caring for hospitalised patients. Kerry also runs our Kitten Adoption Program with our other nurses and has rehomed many abandoned kittens over the years.

Kerry has many pets of her own including dogs, cats, parrots and chickens. Apart from looking after her own animals in her spare time, she’s also enjoys live music, gardening and travel.

Mykeala Campanini

I started at Yeronga Vet Surgery in 2017 as an animal attendant whilst completing my journalism degree. I have always loved animals and love having the opportunity to work closely with them every week. You will see me every Saturday running the hydrobath and attending to the cattery. I also assist with reception work during the week! In my spare time I run Happy Tails Animal Rescue and I am a fur mum to my three cats Maddie, Bailey & Calvin and my silky terrier Jax who are all rescue animals.

Cindy Tyson

Having grown up on a farm in Canada, I have always had a love of all animals. Since moving to Australia in 2005, I had the privilege of volunteering with DoggieRescue.com and Labrador Rescue as a foster carer. After completing my Certificate III in Companion Animal Services, I was employed for over 6 years as a Senior Kennel hand at Paws & Whiskers Boarding Kennel & Cattery. In June 2017, I found the perfect position as The Receptionist here at Yeronga Vet Surgery, which incorporates my passion for helping people and their furry friends.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my 2 Terriers (Stubby & Karma) and Labrador (Sunshine). Yoga, hiking, kayaking and enjoying the great outdoors, are just a few of my favourite pastimes.

Exceptional vet service. I have three cats and a dog and have been taking them to Yeronga Veterinary Clinic for over twelve years. I have always found the staff to be caring and professional. Their compassion and the dedication shown to each animal is of a high standard. I would recommend this clinic to anyone looking for outstanding care for their pets.

We moved into the Yeronga area over 18 years ago with our 2 border collies and were fortunate to have someone recommend the Yeronga Veterinary Surgery to us. Since then they have supported us through many wonderful moments when we added 2 wolfhounds to our family and adopted 2 kittens through their adoption service. They have also supported us in the most devastating of times losing 3 dogs over the years. Anita and her team achieve the perfect balance of being excellent vets providing the best of care for pets (and their owners) in a genuine caring and compassionate manner. We are always able to book appointments when needed and have been seen promptly when we have had emergency situations too. I would highly recommend Yeronga Veterinary Surgery.

I have been a patient of Yeronga Vet Clinic for over 20 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr Lisca and the team are second to none. Recently my 3 year old Labradoodle Daisy ruptured her cruciate ligament and underwent surgery. The professionalism and care Daisy received was top class. I would recommend Yeronga Vet Clinic to anyone looking for a great vet service for their fur baby.

We first came to Yeronga Veterinary Surgery nearly 4 years ago, carrying our tiny black Labrador puppy Delilah in, hoping to find some guidance and caring attention, and just a little bit of shared dog-madness. Well, we were in luck, and we have never looked back. The team at Yeronga Vet Surgery have been nothing short of exceptional at every step of our journey with them. From the basics of preventative care to important surgeries (and the odd mini-emergency thanks to our hungry labradors…) everyone has been both professional and welcoming, and more importantly, extremely good at their jobs! I am constantly blown away by the care and attention we receive, and the fact that our dogs cry with excitement when we pull into the street says it all. We’ve never had dogs who are so excited to visit the vet. We can’t recommend the team highly enough – they are exceptional.

Hi there puny human my name is Bastet. Here is a picture of me in all my glory to help your feeble human brain rest for a moment so I don’t pile on to much information at once. Ready? Nevermind let’s continue. Every few months my manservant deems it necessary to verify the divinity of close personal friend Zeus and myself, here is picture of us looking regal. I know you’re thinking “They are clearly perfect why would he waste their time.” and the answer is frankly he’s not very bright but means well so we indulge him. One thing we demand in return is that he takes us to the Yeronga Vet Surgery where we know we will be shown the respect and deference as befits ones such as us. So if you must interrupt the napping, playing or eating of your betters take them to Yeronga Vet Surgery.

Yeronga Vet have alway been wonderful in their professionalism and care over the years for those furrier members of the family, adding a healthy dose of genuine sympathy for those less routine difficult visits.
