Dr Danika Van Heusden BVMS
I grew up on a farm south of Perth with dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, horses and poultry. I have always wanted to work with animals. I have a Bachelor of Animal Science in addition to my Veterinary degrees, and have worked in different clinics before joining Greencross Vets. I have an interest in behaviour from working with a dogs refuge home, and would like to increase my knowledge in behaviour as well as post operative rehabilitation. When I am not working, I love spending time with my children, Baris the dog, two cats and our flock of chickens.
I was raised on my family’s farm down south of WA and have grown up being surrounded by animals of all kinds. From a young age I knew I wanted to work with animals and after finishing high school I managed to get a job as a stablehand and trackwork rider at a racing stable. It was an incredible learning experience but after three years I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinary nurse. I was lucky enough to do my work placement with Greencross in 2017 and eventually get a job with them once I was a qualified. At home I have two pet greyhounds named Fin & Liv, and a cat named Wolfe.
I am a qualified and registered veterinary nurse and have been employed in the veterinary industry since 2010.
I began my career in a small rural clinic in Exmouth, Western Australia.
I have proudly been a part of the Greencross team since 2017. I am passionate about providing the highest level of care to our patients and creating meaningful bonds with their owners.
My interests include animal behavior and low stress handling. Creating a fear free environment for our patients is something I strive to achieve. When I’m away from the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my family and 2 beautiful staffies. We love being outdoors, going to the beach and camping.
I have always known that I wanted to work with animals since I can remember. Since leaving high school, I have completed a Certificate in Animal Management, Diploma of Veterinary Nursing and Postgraduate Veterinary Technician. I am dedicated to ensuring that our clinic provides the highest possible standard of care for every patient and also aim to ensure that everyone walks out with a smile on their face. I enjoy the challenging nature of veterinary care, particular orthopaedic surgery and post-operative physiotherapy. Being given the opportunity to make pets as healthy and happy as possible is such a special treat, and especially knowing that we can have such a positive effect on their lives. When I’m not in the clinic, you’ll find me in the gym or spending time with my beautiful 8 year old beagle Harlow Madison and my gorgeous 9 year old ginger cat Ava Grace, who I hand raised from 10 days old.

I have always been passionate about healthcare, originally starting my career as a registered human nurse, before completing my veterinary medicine degree from Murdoch University in 2012. I am passionate about learning new skills, particularly in animal behaviour after my own dog Haylee (a Chihuahua Cross) started displaying signs of canine anxiety. In addition to this, I am also interested in studying ultrasonography, Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I have gained experience in a number of small animal clinics and emergency centres in Adelaide before moving back to Perth. When I’m not in the clinic, you’ll find me enjoying acrylic painting and photography.
