Christine MoloneyChristine Moloney BVSc
Companion Animal Veterinarian

I am currently the head of the Companion Animal Department, having spent the last 30 years guiding it to where it is today. I especially enjoy the relationships I have with my many clients and my interest in surgery. My spare time is spent with my partner on our sheep and beef farm, where we can be found mustering on horseback, or trekking through the bush when time allows.
