Dr. Belinda Parsons

Veterinarian

Dr. Belinda Parsons is a veterinarian and certified veterinary acupuncturist. She is the owner of Rouse Hill Family Vets as well as on the Board of Directors of the Australia College of Veterinary Acupuncture. She has been a small animal veterinarian for over 13 years and has always been a passionate advocate for senior pet health care.

She is an avid campaigner for Fear Free Veterinary Visits and is a Level 3 Certified Fear Free Practitioner. She understands that the emotional wellbeing of a patient is just as important as their physical wellbeing and proactively takes steps to reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in her patients.

Dr. Belinda is, unfortunately, no stranger to grief. Her father died during her 2nd year in Veterinary School, and more recently she lost two grandparents and her father in law over a six month period. It is through her own experiences with grief and loss that she is not afraid to be vulnerable with families at this difficult time.

Her family apprises of husband James, daughters Lily and Georgie, and furbabies Charlie and Elmo. Her favourite activities outside of the veterinary world are bushwalking with the family (including the dogs) through our local reserves, photography and traveling the world.
Jack and Percy, were two very much loved members of Dr. Belinda’s family, it is in their memory that Dr. Belinda has decided to offer her in-home palliative care and euthanasia service.
