  • Jacqui Ferguson
    Head Nurse

    I began working as a veterinary nurse in 2002, came to Enfield Vet Hospital in 2005 and have never looked back. Passionate about animal behaviour and education, I studied as a Delta Society CGC Instructor & love running the clinic's Puppy Preschool classes as well as doing what we can to minimise the stress of a vet visit for all of our patients. I have a fondness for big dogs and share custody of Shani (5yr) & Nkosi (3yr) - both Rhodesian Ridgebacks and 4 cats with my family, as well as the 3 failed foster cats i share with my housemates.

  • Melissa Eagle
    Veterinary Nurse

    I have been working in the veterinary industry since 1995 and have loved every minute of it! I started my career as a kennel hand whilst still at school, before moving into veterinary nursing a couple of years later. I have two children who share my passion in animal care. My 15year old daughter wants to follow in my footsteps when she gets older. As well as the 2 legged children I have 2 whippets and a beagle cross. My favourite part of nursing is assisting with medical and diagnostic procedures to help animals get back on all four feet as quickly as possible.

  • Ashleigh Grace
    Veterinary Nurse

    I began working in the veterinary industry in 2006, working as a kennel hand. After completing my HSC I then went on to complete my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. I began working at Enfield in 2011 for 2 years, and then left to work in WA. When I came back to NSW in 2015 I realised how much I missed nursing and was excited to start working at Enfield Vet part time again. I have also completed by Diploma in Beauty Therapy and hope to work in both fields.

    My favourite aspect of the job is definitely surgical nursing, but I am passionate about matching our pound animals to appropriate families. At home I live with my boyfriend Alastair and have an 11 year old grumpy rescue dog called Snoopy who was our foster fail from our time WA.

  • Rebecca O'Hara
    Veterinary Nurse

    Rebecca joined us here at Enfield Veterinary Hospital while undertaking work placement for her nursing studies. She has quickly proven herself to be a valuable member of the team and has even adopted her new dog Daisy from our pound!

  • Piero Bellotari
    Veterinary Nurse

    Piero moved to Australia from Italy just over 12mths ago & is working with us part-time as a veterinary nurse while continuing to improve his English language skills which will allow him to further his career.

  • Dana Georgevsky
    Veterinary Nurse

    I have been working at Enfield Vet since 2009. My background was as an emergency and critical care nurse in a Newcastle emergency practice before moving to Sydney to start a Bachelor of Veterinary Bioscience at Sydney University.

    I work at EVH part-time, while working full-time in medical research. I love to see and interact with all the wonderful animal patients (especially if they are Rottweilers!!). Outside of work, I spend as much time as possible with my spoilt Rottweiler, India-Rose.

  • Toni McKay
    Kennel Assistant

    I have been working at Enfield Vet Hospital since 2011 and I am in charge of organising a pleasant stay for all our boarding animals and some of our hospital animals. I completed my certificate IV in veterinary nursing in 2012.

    At Enfield, I love that I get the chance to spend so much time with all the animals that come through our boarding facility and also get to play a large part in the rehoming process for the animals at our adoption centre.

    In my spare time I'm kept busy by Digger, a poodle/collie cross, that I rehomed as a puppy from Enfield in 2011.

  • Elias Christofi
    Kennel Assistant

    I work as a part-time animal attendant/receptionist at Enfield while I'm studying at university. I have been working at Enfield now for around 4 years. My job gives me lots of great opportunities to interact with all our boarding animals and their owners and I look forward to seeing you and your pets when I'm at work.

    Sonic
    [2002-2015] 


    Sonic was a stray kitten who adopted EVH in 2003, and was quickly promoted to the reception supervisor position. Sonic's favourite hobbies were lizard watching, sleeping, teasing dogs, chewing paper, and drinking out of staff coffee mugs! She got her name because of her very special double ear lobes. Sonic became very ill soon at a young age when she collapsed and became gravely ill. Blood tests indicated acute kidney failure and treatment was started immediately.She made a full recovery and went on to live a happy & healthy life for 12years, before developing chronic renal failure. 

     

     

    Wilson
    [2003-2012]

    Wilson was adopted by the clinic at a young age after requiring intensive treatment for a skin condition & the discovery that he and Sonic got along quite well. Never quite as agile as Sonic, Wilson tended to patrol the lower levels of the clinic, preferring to walk up to and greet as many patients as he could (whether they liked it or not!). After suffering a spinal injury and undergoing surgery, Wilson's mobility deteriorated and when he became paralysed the decision was made to end his suffering and put him to rest.
