In 2021 Dr Bec, along with Deb and Tara and their families, purchased the clinic with the dream of having a family owned clinic that offers their clients the best of care for their fur babies with understanding and support for them like no other.

At Brassall Vets, Dr Bec and her team truly love your pets!

Keeping up to date in the latest of medical and surgical care, you know your pets are in good hands. 

Dr Bec is a knowledgeable, caring and compassionate veterinarian who is a highly experienced surgeon. She loves all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery, and has a special interest in breeding, ophthalmology and all soft tissue surgery.

Having grown up with a large fur family, Dr Bec is so thankful that her two young daughters, Eden and Claire, are able to as well.  They are following in her footsteps with a love for animals and passion for helping them, and you will often see the kids and her husband Mark helping out around the clinic.

With her own dogs, cats and ponies, she knows how important your pets are to you, and is passionate about treating them as her own.

From when you welcome your new fur baby into your family, to reminiscing when it's time to say goodbye, the team at Brassall Vets will be there for you and your pets.

Offering you options to help,

every step of the way

With experience in all aspects of medical and surgical nursing, your fur babies are safe and loved in Sophie's hands.

Sophie is also a favourite among all the clinics little humans, with them preferring her over their own mums most days! 

She keeps us all smiling with her humour and caring ways and is another valuable member of the team we wouldn't be the same without.

Veterinary Nurse

Demi is the smiling face you will meet upon arriving at the clinic two days a week. Our wonderful receptionist and nurse has many years experience working in clinics and helping clients.

Demi's love of our patients and their humans is felt by everyone who enters through our doors. 

 She loves keeping up with the latest in nursing care and helping your fur babies in any way she can, even if that means having to 'force' herself to cuddle them all day ;) 

She and her husband have two gorgeous little ones, Austin and Brooklyn, and  their young family is completed by their three other babies, of the four-legged kind.

Demi looks forward to welcoming you and your pets to the clinic! Let her take a puppy and kitten selfie and she'll be your bestie forever!!
