Welcome to Greencross Vets Livingstone Rd

At Greencross Vets Livingstone Road we understand that our pets are our family, so they deserve the very best of care. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of veterinary practice with a focus on achieving the best outcomes for our patients and their humans.

Our veterinary team shares a wealth of clinical experience with an emphasis on continuing education to ensure that we remain at the forefront of general practice veterinary care. We offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services, including dentistry, surgery, x-rays and diagnostic medicine through to preventative health care and weight loss programs. We also offer a specialist ultrasound service.

For those with cats, we understand the stress that a visit to the vet can cause our feline friends. To minimise the stress, we have a dedicated cat waiting area away from the hustle and bustle of the front entrance and a dedicated cat ward to help them feel safe during their hospital stay. We also offer luxurious cat boarding facilities and have Feliway diffusers that dispense a cat-calming pheromone throughout the hospital.

After graduating from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and a Bachelor of Science (Veterinary) he worked in private practice in Sydney’s south-west before joining the team at Livingstone Road in 2017.

After graduating from the University of Queensland, having kept her financial head above water by working as a farrier’s assistant on weekends and as a veterinary nurse during the holidays, she headed off to South East of SA to work for 2 years as a large animal vet. Here she dealt with horses, sheep, goats, cattle and the occasional dog or cat. After moving to the Hunter Valley, she continued to work with horses, cattle and goats but started spending more time treating cats and dogs.

Allison Short

Allison Short

Allison had a passion for animals from a very young age bringing home animals that were needing love and trying to save any animal on the family farm. Over the years, her love for them saw her study numerous courses including animal care and management and vet nursing. Work placement saw her start a nursing career whilst still at school and this continued upon graduating. Allison has been nursing in general practices for close to 10 years, joining Livingstone Rd in March 2018. Outside of work Allison has a massive passion for horses and is a harness racing driver, enjoys sport, outdoor adventures and spending time with all her animals and family. Her horses reside at the family farm while she shares her home with her partner and the various 2-legged and 4-legged children.

Alyssa Martin

Alyssa Martin

Like many who have a love of animals, Alyssa’s began when she was little. It all started with a couple of rabbits and guinea pigs and very quickly expanded to cats, dogs and even horses. Alyssa grew up in the Blue Mountains where she realised her desire to care for sick and injured wildlife and pets. She graduated from the University of Technology Sydney in 2016 with a Bachelor degree in Environmental Biology. Soon after she began her full time studies in Veterinary Nursing and completed her Certificate IV in 2017. While studying she joined the Team at Livingstone Road. Alyssa has a passion for environmental conservation, native wildlife and veterinary medicine. In her down time she reads, watches too much television, and loves her two troublesome large breed dogs Maggie (Magpie) and Goose, no matter what mischief they get themselves into.

Ashley Gibb

Ashley Gibb

Ashley grew up always having family pets. She took a liking to all animals as a child and very quickly formed an empathic bond with them. She often brought home animals to her Mum’s dismay. This included such animals as mice and caterpillars. Not much changed once she became a nurse. Except that the mice and caterpillars had progressed to cats, dogs and birds. Being in the vet industry for 9 years, she developed a passion for all things animal-related. She’s particularly interested in pet nutrition and pet behaviour. She also enjoys uncommon, complex and interesting surgeries. She shares a home with her partner and her two fur babies Abbey (an energetic mixed breed dog) and Franky (a sassy calico coloured cat). Although the dog and cat will tell you it’s actually their home that they share with their human servants, Ashley wouldn’t have it any other way.

Dr Emily Surgeon BVSc

Dr Emily Surgeon BVSc

Emily graduated from Sydney University in 2008. In 2010, after two years working as an equine vet on the central coast, Emily entered the realm of small animal practice and took up a position at the SPCA vet clinic in Fiji. After having her fill of working under coconut trees, Emily returned to Sydney to continue working with small animals. She joined Greencross Livingstone Road in June 2013 and has stayed here ever since. Emily loves being a vet. She loves working with people and animals and, while she has a particular interest in feline medicine, she enjoys the day to day diversity that comes with general practice. When she’s not pulling her 18 month old son off her Burmese cat Maochin, she likes to spend time swimming in the ocean, bush walking and travelling.
