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.

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 at South Toowoomba Vets and enjoyed developing my skills and knowledge there immensely. After about 4 years of nursing Ionged to travel so I left the industry and returned to Moree to chase the cotton season and the money! Two years I was away from the vet scene and in that time I holidayed in many beautiful places such as Cairns, Townsville, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef, Thailand, Bali and Singapore. But it wasn’t long before I had the urge to return to the job that I love, the people that I missed and the animals that I adore. I’m currently the resident surgical nurse at Greencross Chandlers, Toowoomba and I’m loving every minute of it. What gets me excited about my job is surgery and emergency nursing, honing my skills as a veterinary nurse and of course the patients from all different walks of life and personalities. You will often see me talking secret (and strange) cat and dog language to the patients, cleaning (Im a little OCD with that) and chasing our new clinic kitten SP around the clinic! He likes to test my patience! I have recently completed my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and have ambitions to continue studying in the future in either emergency and critical care nursing or practice management. When I’m not nursing I enjoy indoor netball (I’m currently playing Superleague for Toowoomba, Go Dragons!), keeping active and being outside. Whenever the weather is right, I love to climb Tabletop Mountain and go jogging.
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.
