Bronwyn completed further study in small animal medicine before joining North Shore Veterinary Hospital in 2006. In addition to her enthusiasm for medicine Bronwyn is particularly interested in dermatology and dentistry in dogs and cats.
Since childhood Bronwyn knew her vocation was to work with dogs and cats in the fascinating world of veterinary science. She grew up with a ‘menagerie’ of pets and studied at the University of Sydney, graduating with first class honours in 1999. In 2001 Bronwyn moved to Samoa for a 12 month AusAID volunteer veterinarian role, performing surgical sterilizations and providing basic health care to dogs and cats from a mobile clinic.
On return to Australia Bronwyn undertook a rotating internship at a busy specialist hospital. She enjoyed working at a high standard of care with an evidence based approach and she has looked for these in employers since then. In 2006 Bronwyn attained membership by examination of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science in small animal internal medicine. Bronwyn joined North Shore Veterinary Hospital in 2006. Here she has continued to develop her small animal medicine skills and has become interested in veterinary dentistry. The breadth of expertise and diagnostic equipment at the hospital make it a rewarding place for Bronwyn to work:
here she is able to provide the high level of care to her patients and clients that she strives for. Bronwyn is passionate about animal welfare and environmental issues. She is incorporating Permaculture design principles into her organic vegetable and fruit home garden, which she shares with two aging chickens. Bronwyn has two wonderful dogs, both rescued as adults nearly a decade ago. When Duncan arrived he was so anxious he wore a harness attached to a 10 foot rope that enabled him to be ‘caught’ for pats and attention, and when Jesse was young she had such bad dermatitis that her previous owners could no longer cope. Bronwyn’s most recent great adventure has been into the world of parenthood: her daughter has taught her so much and is Bronwyn’s greatest love.
