Meet our amazing team of committed vets!
Lily is the life of the clinic and is top dog! She was inspired to become a vet when she was 9 years old and has had a dedicated passion for animal health since graduating and moving to Hervey Bay in 1982. Lily prefers a sensible, down-to-earth approach to animal care and emphasis on preventative medicine. She took ownership of Scarness Vets in 2011 and quickly added her creative flare to the clinic! You can see her home-made sculptures surrounding the clinic today. Lily hopes to continue expanding and improving Scarness Vets to ensure we can give your pets the best care possible. In 2014, Lily’s heart was won over by a lost little stumpy tail Cattle Dog who was handed in to the clinic. Now known as Kelly, she regularly comes to the clinic; her job is to instil confidence in nervous patients by having a jolly good play. Lily sense of care for the staff, clients and patients at the clinic know no limits. She whole heartedly cares for every one that comes through the doors and provides the upmost care to everyone she meets.
Amanda grew up in Bundaberg and visited Hervey Bay often. She graduated from the University of Queensland in 2000 with an Applied Science degree in Wildlife Biology. After completing this, she became a wildlife ranger with Queensland Parks and Wildlife in and around Bundaberg for 2 years. She wanted to focus on domestic animals so became a vet nurse at one of the practices in Bundaberg. This was where she got the taste for veterinary science. So she packed everything up and moved to Townsville. Amanda graduated from James Cook University in 2013, then moved south to Childers and started working as a mixed animal vet. Towards the end of 2016, she decided to move to Hervey Bay where she could focus on her passion for small animals. Amanda enjoys both the surgery and medicine sides of vet science. She owns a small menagerie of animals including her Labrador X Cattle Dog Henry, cranky cat Hamish and his feline friend Andy, turtle Albert, and four guinea pigs Barney, Biscuit, Nutmeg and Winston.
Greg has been a vet for over 30 years. He spent many years as a locum vet throughout QLD. Greg has been at this clinic for over a decade and is loved by all of his clients and their patients. Greg loves to be surrounded by nature!
Emma is our latest addition and is new to both Hervey Bay and our clinic. Emma grew up on a cattle property near Kilcoy and has been looking after animals ever since. She studied at the University of Queensland and since graduation has worked in both NSW and QLD in a wide variety of practices with every type of animal both large and small. She continues to enjoy working with a diverse range of animals and brings enthusiasm to every aspect of her work. Her particular interests include large animal work, particularly horses and cattle and small animal surgery. Emma’s furbabies include a spoilt cat called Tink and a speedy horse called Tally.
