Our Services.

Greencross Vets Wishart Road offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services to cater for all your pet care needs utilising the latest diagnostic equipment.

Desexing

Getting your pet desexed (neutered or spayed) is essential to their health. All Greencross Vets facilities are completely sterile and use the latest in surgical equipment.

Vaccinations

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

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm can be hard to detect, but it needn’t be hard to prevent. Greencross Vets recommends year round heartworm prevention. Ask your vet about prevention today.

Kathy Ridgway

Kathy Ridgway

Hi, my name is Kathy. I am a Certificate IV veterinary nurse, and I’ve been in the veterinary industry since 2007, and from 2011 became a member of the awesome team at Greencross Vets Wishart Rd. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, including educating our clients about the benefits to their pets of dental care and weight management.I am a passionate animal advocate, and look forward to seeing an end to the live animal export trade, and the large scale production of our companion animals (puppy farms). I am married with 2 adult children, and I have a Maltese named Tess, and a Cockatiel named Tinkerbell.

He will always take time out of his day to give that extra information and care (to ensure you understand all information provided). Owen is a great surgeon, with suture abilities to rival the Country Women’s Association and he is very passionate about animals.

Dr Ben Schuster

Dr Ben Schuster

Being born in Toowoomba and growing up in Maryborough QLD, I’ve had a lot of experience in smaller, more personal vet clinics, so I feel right at home here at the Wishart Road clinic. After moving from Maryborough to Townsville to study a Bachelor of Veterinary Science at James Cook University it felt like coming to the big smoke, but I now realise that’s not quite the case. Brisbane truly is a sprawling metropolis, and presents plenty of opportunities to further my career in veterinary science, particularly with a focus on avian medicine, Australian native wildlife, and other exotics. My other interests include birdwatching, collecting modern and retro video games, and playing the guitar and mandolin. No pets at the moment, unfortunately, but one day I hope to own many parrots!

Amy Ward

Hi my name is Amy. I am a Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse and have been a part of the Wishart Road team since October 2015. I am living a dream come true; I have always wanted to spend my career doing what I love most. A few of the many things I enjoy about my job are providing the best standards of care to all my patients and educating the community on prevention and providing expert care advice for their furry and feathered friends. I am a bird lover and am very interested and eager to educate myself more about them. In my spare time I like to take my two Staffys, Pumpkin and Axel out for a run and a swim and also enjoy spending time with my two talking Rainbow Lorikeets Beau and Birdee.

Dr Ed Layt

Dr Ed Layt

I was born and raised in Brisbane and have been working in the veterinary industry for over 35 years. I have been working at Greencross Vets Wishart Road since 1992, joining the company as a founding member practice in 2007. My special interests include avian medicine (and birds in general) and love meeting and educating new pet parents about preventative health care to keep them happy and healthy. When I’m not working in the clinic, you will find me caring for my small aviary of cockatiels (also known as my natural alarm clocks!). I have written a book about the history and experiences of my time in a Brisbane vet practice named Doctor of Sorts, which was released in December 2014. I am married with four children (all grown up) and enjoy travelling, piano playing and a wide variety of music, although my family have banned me from karaoke anywhere, anytime…

Having grown up in Brisbane I studied veterinary science at the University of Queensland after finishing high school. After working in various Greencross practices I now enjoy working part time with the team at Wishart Road.
I have two young children so subsequently have very little spare time but try to eny gardening, swimming and attempting to finish needlework. In addition to my two small children I have a geriatric golden retriever who still
enjoys (slow) walks and a geriatric ex-clinic cat who still enjoys (slowly) annoying the dog.
I enjoy all aspects of general practice especially exploring and strengthening the client-animal bond.

I completed a Certificate III in Animal Studies and have been working in the veterinary industry since December 2013. I am very lucky and grateful that Greencross Vets made me part of their team as my first career. I am interested in learning more about surgery, surgical nursing and the anatomical and physiological aspects of birds. What I love about working in this field is that everyday is different and you are always learning something new. This job is never boring. I have two dogs at home Rusty who is a 13yr old chocolate Kelpie and Meg who is an 11yr old red Cattle Dog.
