Southside Vet Clinic Owner: Dr Liz Craig
In the earliest photos of me, when mobile enough to stand, there will always be an animal attached, under an arm or sitting beside me (much to my eldest sisters dismay as she is allergic to most animals and thus my presence) It was almost predestined that I would spend my life looking after animals.
I graduated with honors from Queensland University way back in 1981 .Back in those days, I returned home to the Snowy Mountains of NSW for Christmas before intending on travelling overseas for further veterinary studies. After postponing a few times due to animals appearing for treatment, I eventually cancelled and opened my first practice which grew to be part of the Monaro community. In the next 20 years, I followed my passion of being a vet and expanded with a branch practice in Cooma. In this amazing community I raised my two sons who remain my best mates and a vital part of my life.
After leaving the Snowys, I went to the extreme of climate change of Rockhampton for almost 10 years, and for the last few years I have called Brisbane home. I have locumed in many practices around the South-East but missed being able to be there for clients and their pets and so opened our Practice in Loganholme.
One of my treasured possessions is the photo album given to me on leaving the Monaro. This displayed the lifespans of so many treasured pets I had been lucky enough to treat and know over their lives – the long term contact and care being a driving factor to return to my own practice. We have aimed at providing a well equipped, caring practice which will help from medical to surgical to behavioral to grooming – a holistic view for your pet.
