Dr. Belinda Parsons
She has completed 3 additional years of study in Veterinary Oncology, Small Animal Endocrinology, and Small Animal Neurology through Massey University. She attended the first Australian Veterinary Palliative Care Advisory Council Conference in May 2018.
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.

Patient Care Coordinator
Her love for palliative care stems from her childhood dogs Max and Bobbie who she absolutely adored and was passionate in ensuring that they were comfortable in their last few years. She also has a beautiful Mini Fox Terrier Bella who is 19 years old and requires palliative care for her arthritis and dementia. She believes our elderly pets deserve their last few years to be as pain free and full of love as we can possibly make it.
Emma is a certificate IV certified Veterinary Nurse and also certificate III Fear Free certified. She believes that the chances of recovery for animals will be much faster if their experience is positive and as stress free as possible.
