Dr Greg graduated from Murdoch University 1980 and for the last 33 years has devoted himself to servicing the animal needs of Meadows and surrounding districts. Although he loves being involved with all species, he has extensive skills in Equine Stud Medicine (especially artificial insemination with frozen and chilled semen) and is passionate about Equine Dentistry. Ten years ago he realised his dream to build a purpose built veterinary facility that can offer the best in services & treatments for all animals!

He and his wife, Viv have one son James aged 29. In his spare time (a rare occurrence!) he enjoys trying to perfect his golf game! Viv used to compete in eventing show jumping & dressage but these days tends to be too busy with the practice & breeding their own warmblood horses!

Dr Kyra Wilhelm BVS DVM

We are really pleased to announce that Dr Kyra Wilhelm has joined our practice. Our long term clients will remember Kyra, who was our Saturday morning vet nurse while she was studying to become a vet - that was over six years ago now! Since becoming a vet, she worked as an equine intern for 18 months before moving to Canberra to work in a mixed practice for the last 5 years, so she is now very experienced in all aspects of being a vet! She enjoys the variety and challenge of all the different cases that we get to see in a mixed practice, but has a special love of equine medicine, as well as small animal medicine and surgery. In her free time, she enjoys riding her horse and playing tennis, and enjoys reading, watching movies, cross-stitching and crocheting. We all love having her back!



Dr Rachel Penn BVS DVM

Dr Rachel graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2016 and joined our practice at the beginning of 2017. Rachel loves being involved in all species of animals and so is very excited to be working in a mixed animal practice. She currently has a cat (Otis) Darius the black lab, fish and three chickens called Baps, Eggletine and Dame Cluck (loves her chickens!) In her spare time she enjoys being involved with her Christadelphian church activities, spending time with family and friends. She also plays the clarinet, loves baking as well as being creative with drawing and crafts.

We all love her very quiet, gentle but very thorough approach to all of her patients.
