Dr Amanda

Melbourne Palliative Care Veterinarian

Dr Amanada is a mobile vet in Melbourne

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

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

Dr Amanda lives close to the beach in Melbourne with her husband Michael, four teenage children, two cats- Scruffy (the ruling fluffball) and Jayjay (the loveable) and two dogs Rio (the big goofball) and Baitzee (the gentle old man).

Graduating from The University of Queensland in 1998, Dr Amanda started practicing on the Gold Coast. After 4 years, she ventured to England with her husband where they worked and travelled for 2 years enjoying the proximity and vibrancy of all Europe has to offer—plus meeting her first chinchilla!

Dr Amanda enjoys her current combination of work between Sunset Vets, small animal practice and shelter/welfare organisations. To help support her patients (and her pets) in additional ways Dr Amanda has completed a Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Acupuncture, developed skills in Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Integrative Medicine and most recently engaged in better understanding of Medicinal Cannabis and its analgesic and medicinal qualities for our pets. 

Veterinary special interests

Integrative Medicine, Acupuncture, Geriatric care and analgesia, plus Spectrum of care.

It always starts with one:

Our beautiful old man Baitzee, came into the family from the Animal Welfare League on the Gold Coast as a dumped white ball of matts. After a groom and some checks, he became a much-loved part of our growing family, back in the day he loved nothing more than being with his pack (even if that meant being dressed up or put in a pram). As Baitzee grew older he’s been plagued by cruciate tears, widespread arthritis and liver issues. Fortunately, he’s still living a quality of life at nearly 17 with well-controlled pain, a great appetite and a much-modified activity schedule. As a family, we know his time is near and we monitor and cherish each day closely.  

What else are you passionate about?

As a Vet, I’m passionate about supporting and enhancing the human-animal bond. I love gardening and growing my fruit and veggies. The beach is my happy place and enjoy walking and riding its length. 

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.

Words you live by:

Be kind, share a smile, show empathy, and be resilient.
