I have always had a love for animals, and always had plenty of animals at home to look after.
I studied Chemistry in New Zealand and then moved to Melbourne in 2018 to attend Melbourne Veterinary School.
Currently in my second year of study I spend any spare time I have in the clinic getting to know the ropes and meeting all the pets and their owners.
At home, I am looked after by Pepsi and Enzo, my inseparable young rescue cats.
Jess has been a chef for 10 years but always being a lover of animals, decided that this was going to be her new career. Jess started a Cert. 4 in nursing at Box Hill TAFE at the start of 2017 and is enjoying studying again. Jess also is cat sitter, fosters and volunteers for Second Chance Animal Rescue. She shares her home with her tortie girl, Georgia and her little old man, Ed, a 12y old Papillon
Animals are a passion of mine and I am delighted to have been in a great team and organisation for the last five years, who all share my passion. I have completed my certificate III in Animal studies and Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. In my spare time I enjoy going away camping, heading to the football and catching with family and friends

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 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.
