Dr Cheryl Lim
I have always been passionate about responsible pet ownership and holistic healthcare of animals. Originally from Singapore, I have studied and worked in Perth since 2008. After completing my veterinary degree at Murdoch University, I started out in mixed animal practice, then went on to do some locum work before settling into small animal practice. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice, especially equipping and enabling people to provide the best care they can for their pet. My professional interests include ophthalmology, surgery and management of osteoarthritis. I enjoy learning new skills and keeping my knowledge up to date and find that there is always so much more to learn! I also love volunteering my time with international animal rescue groups and exchanging knowledge and experiences with the people I meet. I have a five year old Blue Heeler Kelpie cross named Chip who is very spoilt and loves exploring new places with me. When I’m not at work, you will find me training for my next trail run or outdoor adventure, jamming on my acoustic guitar or reading a good book.

I have always wanted to work with animals and being a vet seems like a natural choice. This brought me to Perth and I graduated from Murdoch University in 2008. I knew from the start that small animal practice is right for me. I started off working in Busselton, then went home to Singapore for 3.5 years to be closer to my family, but then realised that Perth is where I want to be.
Being in general practice gives me opportunities to lend a helping hand to both clients and their pets on a daily basis. Many people view their pets as part of their family and I feel honoured that clients place their trust in me to care for their beloved animals.
My special interests are in small animal medicine (in particular endocrinology and management of concurrent medical diseases), dermatology, Traditional Chinese Medicine-based acupuncture and small mammals (rabbits and guinea pigs).
My husband and I have a 2-year-old toddler, who keeps us busy every day. My other passion is yoga and I love how it helps me to recharge and stay grounded in my hectic life. I also have a cat called Colin who loves to have a snooze under the sun!
I was born in Perth and have lived here my entire life. I spent a few years travelling the world however I knew Perth was the place where I wanted to settle down and start my family. I have a husband, two daughters and two fur babies – a Shiba Inu named Yoshi and a Golden Retriever named Willow. I am passionate about animal welfare and have always sought ways to improve my knowledge and skills regarding their care. I completed a Wildlife Rehabilitation Course in 2013 and also volunteered at Native Animal Rescue Dog Refuge Home and S.A.F.E. Perth. I think animals are inspiring and intriguing and I enjoy all aspects of their care, especially surgery, animal husbandry and customer service. I have had many pets including dogs, rabbits, fish, birds and bearded dragons. I am also enthusiastic about providing clients with quality service and care, having had over ten years of experience in the customer service industry. When I am not working or studying, you will find me spending time with my beautiful family.
I have always been surrounded by animals for as long as I can remember and I have always known I wanted to become a veterinary nurse. I began my studies as a veterinary nurse in 2014 at AVT in Bentley and have only just began my nursing career with Greencross Vets this year. I have always lived in Perth and travel over east frequently to visit family. I have a strong interest and passion in surgical nursing. I am also incredibly passionate about animal’s health and wellbeing. I believe I am a professional animal hugger so you can expect your pet to leave our clinic full of love and cuddles. I love travelling and hope to, one day, travel to different parts of Asia and work voluntarily as a vet nurse with a team of Veterinarians to help injured or sick stray animals. Anyone I’ve previously travelled with will know I spend half of my time on holidays cuddling and feeding stray animals. I also enjoy spending my time exploring new national parks or hiding spots and going out for meals at new and different restaurants and cafes around Perth.
