Dr Claire, animal lover, mum and veterinarian, has always been fascinated with the connection and love shared between pets and their owners.
“Our pets are our companions, sometimes they are the most reliable and reassuring friends that we have. Throughout my career I’ve been captivated by the beautiful connection humans have with their dogs and cats, and the positive impact these relationships have on our general well-being.”
Working on the frontline in practice and as a trainer for vets in improving their consultation skills, Dr Claire has a strong passion for the industry.
“Having been in practice for over 10 years, I see an opportunity for vets to be even more brilliant than they already are and that is through developing their communication skills.
Connecting on an emotional level with pet owners in the consult room is essential in providing first class veterinary care and is something that’s often overlooked in our training.”
Dr Claire is a Saxton Speaker, based in the Gold Coast and is passionate about community, connection and of course, ensuring a healthy, long and happy life for our pets. She is also the proud veterinary ambassador of Hypro Premium Dog Food.
