Meet Our Staff

Dr Michael Smith - Principal Veterinarian

I have been a vet for over 25 years now and still thoroughly enjoy what I do. I have a keen interest in surgery especially in orthopaedic operations such as cruciate repairs (Knee Reconstruction) and luxating patella surgery (Dislocating Knee Caps) which are common problem in dogs.

I am also interested in treating dogs with long standing skin problems and find it very rewarding to see animals recover from being extremely itchy & irritated to enjoying a normal life again. I love what I do, don't see it as "work" & enjoy the look on clients faces when their companion is back on the road to recovery.

I keep up to date by attending conferences & meetings regularly also the Australian Veterinary Association annual conferences and meetings.

I have completed post graduate studies in Small Animal Surgery.

In my spare time (when I have some) I enjoy spending time at the beach with my 3 children and lovable Staffy dog Billy who was a rescue dog, a young and very playful French bulldog Bruno, Bella a rescue greyhound, a snake named Nagini and my Bearded dragon Blue beard. I also enjoy spending time on my pushbike, road racing & track (velodrome) racing.

Kim Jones - Puppy Preschool and Adult Dog Training (Mutts Manners)

Hi, My name is Kim and I have worked in the animal industry as a vet nurse and dog behavioural trainer for over 25 years, and I am very passionate about my work with my four legged friends. I run my own puppy and adult dog training business part time. I am a delta accredited dog behaviour trainer and conduct puppy classes here at the clinic. (which is one of my great loves).

I have a cat called Scrap who is a RSPCA special. He is now 11 years old. He rules my household, but he is very affectionate and loving. I also have a rescue Greyhound named Stretch.

I am involved with all aspects of the clinic and I work full time. (it is rare not to see me there) I have never seen my job as work as I enjoy working with the team we have and each day is interesting and brings new challenges.

I enjoy spending my time with my animals, all of which have come from a rescue or being surrendered. Tilda a 13 year old domestic long haired cat (tortie), Summer a 9 year old domestic cat,  Timothy a 10 year old Papillion, Allen a 8 year old domestic cat, Jenny a 7 year old cat who has a congenital spinal disorder, Libby a domestic cat who is 7 years old. A rescue 5 year old French Bulldog with all sorts of issues  ( which makes her all the more special ) named Alice, Lillian a Bearded Dragon, Flo a 12ft Diamond python and Brian a desert scorpion.
