Dr Lan Tran - Veterinarian

Reservoir Veterinary Clinic - Vet Dr Lan Tran
  • BVSC (Hons)
  • Graduate Diploma of Veterinary Clinical Studies
  • MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine & Surgery)

Lan graduated from the University of Sydney in 1996.

Lan's areas of interests are endocrine (hormone dysfunction), neurology, soft tissue surgery and preventative medicine.

Lan is passionate about providing a first class veterinary care for her patients and their owners. The most exciting part of coming to work for her is that, there are never two days that are the same. Every day is different, different patients with different predicaments and meeting different people. Her patients forgive her as long as there is a reward at the end, and she loves that they never complain about being hugged and cheers her up on the busiest and most stressful day. 

Lan finds the most rewarding part of being a Vet is to be able to relieve an animal from pain, or to see a formerly too-sick-to-eat dog hungrily eating a bowl of food, or to see a cat with a of life-threatening urinary obstruction can now urinate with ease. She believes she has the best job in the world!

Lan lives with her family and two boisterous pugs, Amelia and Hippo.
