In 2018 after working part-time at Pittwater for 23 years and also working as an Emergency Veterinarian at NEVS, Jill embarked on a new path as Partner at Pittwater Animal Hospital. Jill has been seeing your animals here at Pittwater Animal Hospital since the early 1990’s. In this time she has been advisor and confidant to many families on how to care for and enjoy their pets. Jill has often seen three generations of a family and all their pets and knows how much they mean. Back home in Newport she is mother to 3 mostly grown up children and is a happy member of the community.
Jill is a very capable general practitioner. In consults she uses a problem solving approach to try to gather the most information to diagnose your pet’s problem. A keen interest in soft tissue surgery means Jill is happy to perform complex surgeries and has excellent protocols for good results. Because of the importance of dental health in animals, Jill initiated the Pittwater Dental Program. Discounted dentals are done to encourage regular cleaning and this has seen fantastic results. Jill is also interested in animal behavior. She tries to give advice at health checks and vaccinations on good techniques for settling pets in your new home. If a pet’s behavior is still difficult, Jill offers behavior consultations that can be very helpful. Jill goes out of her way to learn just how your pet fits into your life so she can help make ownership a really positive experience for you.
