Prevention is the best medicine. Kitten and puppy vaccinations (injections) and adult pet vaccinations prevent disease. Get your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.

Dr Dharsh Rajkumar

Dr Dharsh Rajkumar

Dr Dharsh graduated from the University of Sydney in 2008 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science. In 2010, she completed a rotating internship at The University of Sydney Veterinary Teaching Hospital, where she worked alongside world-class specialists and did further study focusing on Small Animal (mainly cats and dogs) clinical practice. During this year, she also obtained a Graduate Certificate in Veterinary Studies (Small Animal Clinical Studies) from her alma mater.

Dr Dharsh’s extensive small animal experience has included clinical roles in emergency practice, volunteer shelter practice with Vets Beyond Borders, exotic animal (rabbit, guinea pig and hamster) practice in Singapore, locum work at numerous clinics Australia wide and most recently, the role of Veterinary Director at Greencross Vets Box Hill.

Whilst Dr Dharsh loves her patients, her team and challenging medical cases, she is also heavily invested in ensuring her clients are satisfied, especially with the care their family members receive. Dr Dharsh is owned by Sherman Caesar, Lucas Maurice, Mickey Mouse and Luis, all of whom are rescued moggies. She is also the latest (and hopefully lasting!) recruit at a local F45 studio.

Dr Tiffany Wong

Dr Tiffany Wong

Hi, my name’s Tiffany – I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2015 with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Before that, I completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours at the University of British Columbia, in Canada where I was born and raised. My special interests are behaviour and surgery, which are very diverse but that’s why I love being a veterinarian – the multitude of different skills I get to use is amazing. I have two rescued ginger cats named Nugget and Marmalade, who are brothers. Outside of my veterinary pursuits, I’m an avid baker – I love utilising food science to make sweet creations

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 he’s 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.
