Practice Owner (B. Business Professional Accounting)
To be the only male among a female dominated practice, Tony is brave & down to earth, with a quick wit and he enjoys a chat! He comes from a broad background of business management over the past 20 years, both within the food and sports/physical health industries, before shifting into the veterinary business in 2014.
As an co-owner of the business, Tony is always keen on further developing the practice and enjoys the growth of client-vet-pet relationships that continue to form as the business grows older. He enjoys being forefront of the business, as customer service is a quality he strives to achieve, and has a keen interest in veterinary care - in particular canine reproduction.
In his spare time, Tony is a keen cross-fitter, and loves all sports. Although he's a business man, Tony is a self-confessed failure at Monopoly, often losing the title to his young son, Callum!

There is no doubt in our mind Nicole's love for animals. Nicole has had a passion for all animals since a young age, often bringing home many strays that became important members of her family. So there was no surprise when she decided to go into rescuing those that need a loving, forever home and founding All Breed Canine Rescue.
Nicole's passion in veterinary care include a vast array of medical cases & raising puppies, and is incredibly compassionate and dedicated to making the life of all our pets better.
Nic has been a fabulous member of our team for several years, and if not for her compassion and dedication alone, her experience as a veterinary nurse is valuable.
Nic is a Furmum to a very naughty Bulldog called William.

Veterinary Nurse (Currently enrolled in Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing)
Lovely Kirra first came to Furkids as a keen volunteer when she was only 13. Her talents, natural ability and eagerness to learn was quickly recognised, and Kirra was employed as a trainee nurse after only 3 months of experience. Now, 4 years on, Kirra is still loving her job and all the things involved in working in the veterinary industry as a very much loved member of the Furkids team.
Often the quiet achiever but quick to crack a joke, Kirra's quick witt & spark is a refreshing addition to our busy & often stressful environment.
A way to her heart is food, and everything except for raisins and corn, and is always up for the opportunity for food remuneration.
