Our lovely Dr Georgia is now on maternity leave. She has welcomed her beautiful baby boy into this world. Her two-year-old daughter, Tiggi, is very excited to be a big sister.
Dr Georgia is planning on being back, doing what she does best, after a 6-month break.
We will miss you, Georgia! But luckily, we aren’t losing you permanently. We hope to see her back in the new year.
“I will miss the staff and my patients at Bangalow Vets terribly but am very confident Abbie will be an amazing replacement whilst I’m gone.”
As we say “see you soon” to one amazing vet, we welcome another.
Meet Dr Abbie. A Bangalow local and no stranger to the veterinary industry.
Abbie has been a vet for 11 years now. She has mostly worked in the Northern Rivers, however, a few years ago she did work over in England to have the “James Harriet” experience. She has also travelled to Cambodia to help with Rabies prevention and neutering programs, which Dr Abbie explained as “a wonderful experience”.
Abbie grew up in Ewingsdale with many animals around her as a child. She moved away to study veterinary science at University of Queensland in Brisbane. Abbie and her husband then moved to Bangalow to be closer to their families and for their children to grow up in a small community.
“As a kid I was involved in horses and belonged to the Bangalow pony club for many years, so I would love for my children to have the same upbringing.” Abbie explains.
Abbie has mostly worked in mixed practice treating everything from cats, dogs, and horses to neighbourhood wildlife. She enjoys surgery, so much so that she is currently undergoing additional surgical training through Sydney University.
Interesting facts about Dr Abbie:
– As a teenager, she was a Bangalow agricultural show ambassador.
– She really loves mowing and renovating old houses
– Abbie’s favourite animals are Dalmatians and horses
– The most interesting animal she has ever treated was a Hedgehog in England!
The entire team at Bangalow Vets are so excited to welcoming Dr Abbie to the team, and we wish Dr Georgia all the best in her next chapter in life and already miss her dearly.
