Small Animals

Dr Belinda has an broad and varied career in small animal veterinary practice. From private and  corporate practice, to university emergency practice.

At Serpentine Vet we offer cradle to grave care for your pets, with Dr Belinda’s core ethos of offering the best, but tailoring a diagnostic and therapeutic plan to each families personal needs.

Over 12 years working Emergency, at Murdoch University, has taught her that you simply cannot plan for everything. At Serpentine Vet if you and your pet are in crisis,  we will treat you like part of our extended family, and we treat your pets as if they were our own.

We offer all routine small animal consultations and surgical procedures. We offer housecalls and, importantly, home euthanasia.

Our Free Vaccinations for Life Program is increasingly popular amongst our Serpentine Vet Family, with approximately 60% of our patients enrolled.

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
