Dr Trudy Hinds BVSC (Hons)



Dr Trudy Hinds graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Hons I) from the University of Queensland in 1996. 

After a long career in small animal practice, including many years as a practice owner, Dr Trudy and her very patient husband (!) added two sons to their family.

There is almost no aspect of veterinary practice that Dr Trudy does not enjoy or has not done some further studies in – dentistry, reproduction, paediatrics, dermatology, radiography, feline and canine internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, behaviour, practice management and pocket pet care – she loves it all! 

Now working part-time while raising two young men, the satisfaction of working with clients to achieve the best quality of life and medical care for their beloved family pets is what keeps her coming into work each day. 

Dr Trudy has shared her home with pet budgies, guinea pigs, rats, very special dogs and a very special cat over the years.  Dr Trudys’ family now enjoy keeping tropical fish and pet chickens with her but there are bound to be more new additions as the boys get older!

Mr. Meowgie is our Clinic Kitty. However in his opinion, He is the BOSS. This handsome trouble maker is often assisting with printing, scanning and filing at reception. He ensures that clients are aware he requires 24/7 attention. He brings great comfort to our patients in need and gives great cuddles to their owners.
