Her favourite patient is Mummy cat who belongs to Nurse Hannah, because she is the most challenging patient.

Dr Sue Ramoo graduated from the University of Sydney in 2004 and worked in general practice for 2 years, where she saw lots of dogs, cats, a few goats, some sheep and a couple of cows! During this time she developed an interest in internal medicine which led her to undertake an internship in critical care and internal medicine, which was followed by a 3 year residency at the University of Melbourne Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
Sue has since worked in private referral practices across Melbourne and is well versed in all aspects of internal medicine. She has been published in various veterinary journals and her interests include gastroenterology, endocrinology and oncology.
Outside of work, Sue dabbles in floristry and cooking. She also loves food, wine and bush walking. At home, Sue has a 6 year old Border Terrier named Lizzie, and a Princess Parrot called Kayne.
It is great to have Dr Sue Ramoo available for in-clinic assessment of those more complicated medical cases.
Rachael joined our team as our Practice Manager in April 2018. She is a qualified Veterinary Nurse with qualifications in Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and Diploma in Surgical Nursing. Rachael loves a job that is always changing in an industry that is constantly developing. She enjoys being able to educate and assist pet owners with learning and creating a connection with their fur babies.
Rachael has special interest in surgical cases. She recalls a case where an injured dog was brought through the clinic after being hit by a car and suffered serious spinal damage, fractured left and pelvis. Through a series of surgeries, Rachael supported our veterinary surgical team to repair his pelvis and leg, however the spinal cord damage was too servere and he wasn't able to utilise his back legs again. However....the team fitted him with a cart at the back end so he could then move around on his own! Rachael found this case the most satisfiying one that she had treated.
Rachael lives with her two feline fur babies, Milo and Charlee.
