Dr Peta Keown
“Dr. Peta brings more than 13 years experience to the Werribee clinic. A graduate of the University of Melbourne, she has worked in large and small clinics, pet-shop practices, and an emergency clinic. All of these experiences, especially emergency work, have developed skills that can be called on everyday in general veterinary practice. Dr. Peta loves the satisfaction of making pets feel better. This can be as simple as relieving itchy skin or managing arthritic pain, but sometimes it requires blood tests or x-rays to get to the bottom of what is going on. Dr. Peta enjoys all of these and always strives for positive outcomes for owners and their companions. In the process, Dr. Peta finds her understanding and awe of the human-pet bond deepens. At home, Dr. Peta is devoted to two cats. They mostly spend their days searching for the sunniest spot to sleep, but sometimes they like to be the center of attention and sit on the keyboard whilst Dr Peta is trying to work”
Amandas lifelong love of animals led her to a career in Veterinary Nursing in 1998. After working in a large shelter and animal hospital for three years, she made the transition into private practice. Amanda completed a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through Victoria University. She has a special interest in animal behaviour and currently enjoys running the puppy pre-school classes at Petbarn in Hoppers Crossing. Amanda is also a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT Australia). Her Doberman, Anubis, achieved the Delta Canine Good Citizen Award in 2009. Amandas husband (Craig) and their two children (Callum and Bronwyn), share her love of animals. Their household menagerie includes a Doberman (Anubis), a Pomeranian Cross (Lacey) and a flock of crazy chickens.
Hi, my name is Ash and I’ve been a Vet Nurse here at Werribee for 3 years. I have always wanted to work with animals and finally I get to thank to the Werribee team. I am very passionate about the welfare of animals. One day, I wish to work with wild animals at the zoo and in Africa with the Lions. When I am not working I do enjoy working out and going for run with my beautiful American Staffy Achilles. Also I like to go out to good restaurants with good food and desserts, and spending time with friends and family. I also share my life with too naughty cats named Zuki and Calico that are aunty and niece. I think I have one of the best jobs you can get and I feel privileged to have this opportunity.

Isabelle wanted to be a Vet ever since given a toy stethoscope and doctors bag as a child! Issy is a Melbourne west side local but relocated to Adelaide to complete the Doctor of Veterinary medicine course, receiving an outstanding academic award in her final year. She absolutely loves working with clients and their fur babies to achieve optimum health outcomes-her interests include preventative medicine, diagnostic imaging and animal welfare. She also has a very special interest in feline internal medicine- because cats are pawfect!
When not in the consult room, Issy enjoys the company of her three cats at home, reading Agatha Christie novels, travel and spending time with friends and family. She is very excited to have joined the lovely Werribee Greencross team, and looks forward to meeting you and your furry family members soon.

Dr Wendy Faulkner
I graduated from Melbourne University in 2004.
Since graduation I have worked at both the Hoppers Crossing and Werribee Greencross vet clinics, but have primarily been at the Werribee clinic for the last 7 years.
I believe pets are family members and should be treated as such, therefore they should receive the best care available in all areas of their welfare whether it be their diet, preventative health plans, medical, surgical or psychological needs. I aim to achieve this everyday through my role as a veterinarian at Greencross Werribee.
In my spare time when I am not looking after your non-human family members I am looking after your non-human family members I am looking after mine!- as well as spending time with my family. We have 2 whippets named Memphis and Willie, 2 cats named Whisker and Ziggy as well as 4 chickens.
I also enjoy spending time bushwalking, fishing, kayaking and gardening.
I started my journey with Greencross in Ballarat & Creswick and joined the amazing team in Werribee in July 2012 after moving to Bacchus Marsh. I have been a veterinary nurse for nearly 6 years now and I am very passionate about wildlife care/rehabilitation and have been a wildlife carer for over 15 years. I also have a keen interest in birds, reptiles and other exotic pets. I am passionate about customer service and love nursing the surgical patient.
I have a not so clever snake called worm, two inseparable central bearded dragons, Randell & Pearl, and one not so friendly gorgeous Indian Ringneck Parakeet called Zazu, not to mention the number of wildlife critters scattered through my home.
In my spare time I like to go bushwalking, play table tennis, get out into the garden and spending time with my family and friends.
Rebecca began her nursing career at Werribee 11 years ago. It was here that she completed her training and qualified as a certificate IV Veterinary Nurse and a registered Microchip Implanter. Bec took on the Practice Manager role in 2010 and hasn’t looked back, she enjoys the rapport that she has developed with the amazing clients over the years and the snuggles that she has with the patients. She lives locally with her husband Rishi and their two beautiful girls Isla & Aisha who are completely obsessed with the quirky family cat Minou.
