Dr Alice


Canberra Palliative Care Veterinarian

Dr Alice_Sunset Vets

Dr Alice is a Canberra-based Mobile Vet who delivers peaceful and compassionate palliative and end-of-life care to pets. 

Dr Alice is a Canberra mobile vet with a passion for delivering peaceful at-home palliative care.

Dr Alice grew up in southeast Queensland with her two older sisters and younger brother. She always knew animals would be in her future finding a sense of calm and joy in their presence. After graduating from the University of Queensland Veterinary School, Dr Alice has worked in small animal general practice, emergency clinics, and as a government veterinarian in animal disease control policy. Now she is working as a general practitioner with a focus on feline medicine. She lives in Canberra with her partner and two cheeky cats, Pebbles and Gnocchi. Dr Alice deeply appreciates how important our animals are to everyday life and the love, joy and companionship they provide.

“It is difficult to put into words how much our pets mean to us and the impact they have on our lives. I feel grateful that I can provide peaceful passage for animals when the time comes and treat them with the respect and grace they deserve.”

Veterinary special interests

Feline medicine, palliative medicine and taking a holistic approach to providing our companions with the best quality of life.

It always starts with one:

When I was 5 or 6 years old there was a big storm in the middle of the night and a young staffy mixed breed appeared in our lounge room. She was very storm-phobic and took a while to settle panting and pacing around the house. We searched for her owners, but she was not microchipped and eventually, we claimed her as part of our family, calling her Lucky. Lucky was a constant presence for me during my childhood and a source of pure joy. We were inseparable, playing during the day and cuddling up at night, her taking up most of the bed. It was truly heartbreaking when she passed suddenly from a snake bite. She introduced me to the joy of animals, and I will be forever grateful for the time we had.

What else are you passionate about?

Outside of veterinary medicine, I enjoy playing netball, and gardening and always have some sort of craft project in progress.

What do you love about Palliative medicine?

The ability to give our pets something back for all the unconditional love they give us. Palliative care allows the manifestation of quality of life despite age or disease. It’s all about finding the right combination for the pet and the pet parents. I love the process of finding the right combination.
