1. Our Team
Here at GX Chandlers we have a friendly and engaged team of highly qualified vets and nurses dedicated to provide you and your pet with all the care and attention needed. Our clinic offers nurses consultations for things such as routine preventatives, weight loss programs and nail clips. Our team of experienced Vets understand that every pet has different needs and are dedicated to tailoring an individual health care plan for your pet’s requirements. Our team is also regularly involved in community events such as the Million Paws Walk and RSPCA cupcake day, and we support several local and national animal charities and rescue organisations.
2. Our Hospital and Services
Greencross Chandlers Vets is a purpose-built veterinary hospital. Our facilities allow us to perform a wide range of surgical services, from routine desexing to orthopaedic, soft tissue, and dental surgeries. We also have an extensive range of diagnostic and laboratory equipment designed to aid in making an informed and accurate diagnosis when it comes to your pets health. We offer cat grooming, nurse consultations and Veterinary care for injured wildlife. We can see a range of pets including birds and pocket pets such as guinea pigs and pet rats.
3. We Can Come To You
Transporting your pet to the vet clinic can sometimes be difficult and stressful for both you and your pet. We offer house-calls which allows us to examine your pet in the comfort of their own environment and removes the stress of transporting them to us. House-calls are available on weekdays for Toowoomba and surrounds.
Having a healthy, happy pet just got easier through the Healthy Pets Plus membership offered exclusively to Greencross clients. This wellness program includes free vaccinations, unlimited free consultations and a range of discounts, including on parasite prevention and food. Through our partnership with Petbarn, you can also join for free our Friends For Life program which allows you to earn points through Petbarn stores and Greencross clinics.
5. Our Puppy Preschool
Bringing home a new puppy is a very exciting time. However there are a lot of requirements a new puppy has and as a new pet owner there is a lot of information you need to absorb. That is why we offer Puppy Preschool classes, designed for puppies between the ages of 8-16 weeks. Our Puppy Preschool classes are run by our friendly and experienced vet nurse Kianna. The classes are designed to socialise your puppy with other puppies and people, and to familiarise them with the vet clinic environment. The classes are extremely informative as we want to help you to be the best pet parent you can be.
Greencross Vets Chandlers offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services to cater for all your pet care needs utilising the latest diagnostic equipment.

Dr Emma Santin
I graduated from the University of Queensland with Class IIA Honours in June 2015 and started working as a vet in the beautiful seaside town of Port Macquarie! I moved to Toowoomba after a year of practice and have been with Greencross Chandlers since then. When I am not at work I am probably hanging out with my beautiful dogs (Jessie and Ruby) or at our family farm in NSW!
Hi, my name is Gabi. I am a Veterinary nurse and have been working here at Chandlers since 2013. I grew up on some acreage where I was constantly surrounded by animals such as dogs, cats, cows, sheep and a pet pig. Caring for animals has always been a passion of mine and I get so much enjoyment from being a veterinary nurse. I am also a foster carer for ex-racing greyhounds and sick or injured wildlife that comes through the clinic. My husband and I have a pet greyhound called ‘Hector’ and we live as one big happy family at our house on five acres just outside of Toowoomba.
Gemma is very close to completing her course in Veterinary Nursing (Certificate IV) and has been a member of Greencross Vets Chandlers for over a year. She is extremely passionate about providing the highest standards of care to patients and exemplary service to pet owners. In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her furry family members; her two dogs Moe and Tia and two cats Johnny and Kitty!
– Gemma is currently on maternity leave
I began working in the veterinary industry during high school in 2012 when I became a Veterinary Nurse, but my love of animals originates from the age I could walk from being surrounded in animals on the family farm. I have a special interest in dog behaviour & enjoy being a puppy preschool trainer here at Chandlers. I am a passionate animal lover of all types but I’m Border Collie obsessed! I’m a proud mother of ‘Leonardo’ who you see in the picture with me.
I look forward to meeting you & your fur babies in the clinic
I’m a country girl at heart who grew up in the rural town of Moree, NSW. Toowoomba is about of much of a city that I can handle! I launched my career as a Veterinary nurse in 2006. I’m currently one of the Certificate IV qualified Veterinary nurses based at Greencross Chandlers Vets. I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the clinic. What excites me about my job is surgical and emergency nursing, honing my skills as a Veterinary nurse and caring for patients from all different walks of life. My patients always receive the best care. Vets who work with me will often say if they ever end up in hospital they hope to have a nurse like me looking after them. My husband & I have just welcomed our first child into the family! In addition to my family of three, I have a few fur babies as well. ‘Kora’, ‘Kitten’ & ‘Puss’ (original cat names I know)
-Currently On Maternity Leave
I have been working at Chandlers since 2004. I was lucky enough to complete a school based traineeship at a vet clinic in Warwick, then I ventured on after high school to Chandlers to complete my certificate 4 and have been here ever since! Have recently taken on the role of Practice Manager in May 2013. I love all aspects of Veterinary Nursing from nursing a sick pet back to health to helping pet owners out with their pets everyday needs. Myself and my fiancée have 3 boy cats, Charwee Babbit, Stan & Frank. They are our fur children and we adore them. Look forward to seeing you in the clinic in the near future.
