Getting your pet desexed (neutered or spayed) is essential to their health. All Greencross Vets facilities are completely sterile and use the latest in surgical equipment.


Prevention is the best medicine. Kitten and puppy vaccinations (injections) and adult pet vaccinations prevent disease. Get your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.

I have been working at Greencross Vets Carrara for the past two years after completing a School Based Traineeship where I acquired my Certificate II in Animal Studies and Veterinary Nursing. When I’m not behind the reception desk throughout the week, you will find me studying at the University of Queensland in Brisbane or continuously throwing my eight-year old Shih-tzu Putty’s toy ball back and forth for hours on end! My special interests include caring for dogs and cats of all sizes, however I do have a soft spot for kittens and larger dogs (as I have never had these of my own). I adore my job as everyday I’m able to interact with clients and patients both equally as lovely, whom all share the same common interest as I do; ensuring the utmost love and care for their pet.

Hi my name is Cassie and I am one of the vets here at Greencross Vets Carrara. Little 7 year old me decided she wanted to be a vet. Numerous of exams (and tears) later, here I am spending my days getting to meet and help you and your pets! When I am not at work I am usually doing something outdoors, being a slave to my two cats Puss and Boots or trying to teach my dogs that there is more to life than being couch potatoes. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends!
