Education

Dr Belinda loves to talk! And to write!

Informal client education comes naturally to Dr B. If you have spent time with her ‘waxing lyrical’ on her opinions, you will understand that she reads broadly, shares information, and allows clients to make their OWN informed choices regarding their pets care and husbandry.

While it’s true that some veterinary health recommendations are firm,  when they are not, Dr B loves helping inform and educate clients on their options.

When she gets going, she is hard to stop though…as those who follow our Facebook page will confirm! We hope to add some of her written ravings in blog form to this website.

Hepsi Richards

Veterinary Nurse / Serpentine Vet
Hepsi Richards holds a Bachelor of Arts and completed her Veterinary Nursing studies at Polytechnic West in 2012. Since qualifying as a Vet Nurse, she has worked in equine practice in the Swan Valley, and in private small animal emergency practice. She is famed for having the longest drive of any of our staff members, coming to us from what we call ‘South Geraldton’ (also known as Guildford). We think that shows TRUE dedication! Hepsi has two adult children, and several fur kids, but the most famous of her crew is her orange Arabian mare ‘Symphony’ on whom she enjoys both dressage and mounted archery. Hepsi is the one who you will hear Dr B request to ‘bring the energy down’ when she gets excitable. Her enthusiasm is contagious (and a tiny bit loud).

He is also he man whom will be found raising a ‘disapproving’ eyebrow at us from the corner when we make tasteless testicle jokes during a particularly juicy dog castration. Daryl is the large green-shirted man who will accost your dog with love if he walks through the waiting room, and he can also be seen watering plants, cutting down branches, high pressure hosing things, blowing leaves around  and generally keeping our grounds and building looking neat and tidy!! Daryl and his wife live on acreage in the Shire, and are avid dog ... More
