Welcome to Greencross Vets Glen Eira
Welcome – Like you, we all love animals.
We love our pets and we understand the special part they play in every household – including ours. We are proud to say that our staff are gentle, caring, highly trained and experienced.
We care for a range of animal – dogs, cats, rabbits and birds… and guinea pigs, rats and mice!
Our primary goal and in-house training is focused on preventing problems – we aim to keep your pet “family member” happy and healthy from the earliest weeks to a ripe old age. We are setup for early detection of problems and for medical or surgical treatments as necessary.
Our team is dedicated to offering you and your pet the best in Veterinary care. We look forward to building a friendly relationship with you and your furry family member.
In addition to our veterinary work we offer boarding facilities for cats to enjoy so you can be stress free on holidays knowing your furry companion is in safe and caring hands. We also have a groomer in the team here at Greencross Glen Eira who will handle your dog in a gentle and compassionate way – and produce a stylish cut your dog can show off around the park.

Meet our wonderful Emerald! Emerald has been working with us here at Glen Eira for quite some time now. Completing her Cert IV with us, Emerald has been working so hard to develop in her career and we are so proud of her!
Emerald loves spending time with her family and friends, playing netball, watching movies and caring for her fur baby LuLu!
We love having Emerald in clinic. Her kind heart is seen by all the staff and every pet she cares for.
Meet Dolores! Our fabulous casual veterinary nurse who has excelled in her Certificate II in Animal Studies internship program through Greencross. Dolores has had a shift in career. After studying film and animation, she realised that her love for animals was too strong and wanted to move into a career path of being a veterinary nurse! Dolores has the kindest heart and believes every pet should have quality care no matter how big or small they are. You know your pet will be in the best care with her! Dolores has a funky feathered boy named Loki the Conure. She also loves watching movies and playing video games in her spare time. We are looking forward to watching Dolores grow in her role at Greencross Vets Glen Eira and feel incredibly lucky to have her on the team.

Tayla has a kind heart and is passionate about caring for Australia’s wild life. If we have a possum or bird dropped into the clinic, Tayla will know how to care for them! Tayla has two dogs, Basil and Poppy. Some of her joys are sunday markets, the beach and hanging with her friends and family. We look forward to watching Tayla grow and develop in her career. Having completed her Cert II in Animal Studies and currently studying her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing, stay tuned!

Dr Michael Righetti
Dr Michael Righetti
Dr Michael Righetti has a farming background (Greta in north eastern Victoria) and according to his late parents he didn’t contemplate any other occupation other than to be a Vet. His brother looked after the equipment and fencing on the farm, and he took care of the animals.
Dr Righetti has been caring for dogs, cats and other small animals for over 30 years and he’s still trying to convince his nurses that hes in his mid fourtys! And your pets are safe with Dr Righetti as a strict vegetarian he hasn’t eaten one for 30 years!!!!
Outside the Practice his loves are his wife and children,Molly the mutt (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel), golf, tennis, running (call that jogging!), the Melbourne Footy Club and outdoors (favorite areas Fraser Island and the Gibb River Road).
Dr Michael’s neurosis (or one of them!) in human and veterinary medicine is preventative medicine, and you will find this approach comes up all the time in managing patients.
