Dr Jane Sheehan VBSc MSc

We are very pleased to welcome Dr Jane Sheehan into our practice. Dr Jane graduated from Massey University, New Zealand in 2008. After graduating Jane initially worked in mixed practice in one of the coldest areas of New Zealand. In 2010 she moved across the ditch to the West Island and has been working as a small animal Vet in Adelaide.

Having been raised on a dairy farm she has had cows, sheep, goats, deer, chickens, cats, dogs and ferrets  as pets.  She is also very good with all forms of reptiles too.

She first worked as a high school science teacher and then completed a Masters degree in Biochemistry, before returning to University  to do her Veterinary degree. A decision she has never regretted.


Jane lives lin our local community with her husband Marcus.  Currently she has four cats ranging from 8 to 19 years of age, and a cheeky cross breed dog. She is very passionate about animal health and looks forward to meeting you and all of your animals!

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.

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