Friendly experienced vet visiting you at home

Pets are part of the family and they deserve the best!  Visiting them at home in their normal environment where they can relax is just the beginning. From vaccinations & routine conditions to complex medical case management & surgery, I provide a friendly, experienced & comprehensive veterinary service to ensure that your best friends are looked after from puppy and kittenhood right through all their life stages and for everything that comes along.  

Veterinary Care at Home

Working as a mobile vet in my local area, I get to see all my favourite patients relaxed in their home environment. I regularly perform vaccinations and health check ups: including ear & eye concerns, dental health, lumps and bumps and skin problems. I treat patients with ongoing complex medical conditions such as cardiac disease, diabetes, thyroid and other hormonal conditions, neurological or gastrointestinal problems. As an experienced veterinarian with over 12 years clinical & surgical experience, I take great pride in providing an exceptional level of care to your pet and providing what every loved member of the family deserves: their personal physician.

Hospital Care at the VDSC

Sometimes your pet may require more advanced treatment than can be provided at home, and when this is required I perform them at our surgery: the Veterinary Diagnostics & Surgery Centre on Governor Rd, in Braeside. The VDSC is a state of the art facility where I regularly conduct surgery, desexing, dentistry, diagnostic imaging and other laboratory testing. At the VDSC, we also perform advanced surgical procedures such as fracture repairs, knee reconstruction (TPLO & Extra Capsular), Patella surgery (MPL for patella dislocation), hip surgery (FHNE & Toggle) and complex tumour removal.

About Dr Gemma BVSc (Melb.) MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine)

Growing up in the Bayside area, I first started working in a vet clinic as a kennel hand when I was a young girl; cleaning kennels and walking the dogs. 20 years on, and the joy of working with animals has not lost its magic. Following graduation as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Melbourne in 2007, I have worked in general practice continuously for the past 12 years.  In my previous role as the owner of a busy veterinary hospital, I supervised the medical & surgical cases of our 6 veterinarians along with my own patients, and have undertaken significant post graduate study over several years.  This culminated in being admitted by examination as a member of the Australian & New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the field of Canine & Feline Internal medicine.

Providing a house call service based out of our state of the art vet surgery, the VDSC, I am able to provide your family pets with comprehensive care, from routine vaccinations to advanced surgery, dentistry and other procedures. I am able to offer a tailored approach to your pet’s medical care as their friendly and experienced personal physician. 

 

Testimonials from pet owners

Dr Gemma went above and beyond for my dog Essie, and the care that she received was outstanding. She recovered very well and I credit that to the skills of Dr. Gemma. Thanks so much!

Gemma is a lovely, caring vet who really knows her stuff. I can’t recommend her enough! Billy loves her visits, even though it is for a regular arthritis injection!

Margaret W. 

I cannot speak more highly of Gemma’s care and compassion when we had to say goodbye to our beloved labrador. It was so gentle and peaceful, and Gemma made it so much easier on the whole family. We will always remember her kindness.

With so much appreciation, Jenny

We love having Gemma look after our two nutty cats! The visits are usually hilarious, and Gemma is so knowledgeable about any health concern! We feel lucky to have her, and really appreciate that she comes to us. Taking them to the vets was such a nightmare! Cheers from Sonia, Greg and of course Binks and Duffy!
