Meet Our Team

You'll see the same familiar, friendly faces when you come to see us at Caryn Vet Hospital - Dr Peter Kirkpatrick and Nurses Siena & Sam love to say hi to clients and their fluffy patients. Pop in to say hi and meet them today!



Veterinarian (Bachelor of Veterinary Science, Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine, Bachelor of Biological Science (First Class Honors), Young Australian of Year 2002 - Winner)

Dr Peter Kirkpatrick is thrilled to be serving Edgewater, Heathridge and surrounding suburbs in providing top notch veterinary services to cats, dogs, birds and wildlife alike.

Dr Peter graduated from Murdoch University over 17 years ago and has worked in Western Australia, Victoria and Tasmania with both small and large animals. He has especially loved his work starting My Pet's Mobile Vet, making house calls to people in Tasmania, Geraldton and Perth suburbs - another service he is looking forward to offering the local community.

He has an exciting past, winning the Young Australian of the Year award in 2002 for WA, and also contributes to the Gardening Australia Magazine Pet Column.

Dr Pete has a special interest in orthopaedics, stem cell therapy, complex surgeries and animal medicine - basically everything to do with your furry family member!

He and his wife Elise have recently welcomed their first little lady, Madeline, into their lives, and she is keeping their fur-child Gypsy on her toes! (PS - he loves showing clients cute photos!)

In his 'spare' time, Dr Pete loves getting away down South, riding his motorbike, reading and going for walks with his little family.


Veterinary Nurse (Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing)

Sam is our crazy fish lady! Originally from the Eastern States, she has been nursing for over 6 years all over Australia, and has been loving every moment of it!

Her speciality lies within critical care, complicated surgeries, and exotic vet care, but loves popping out the front to say hi and give your gorgeous pet lots of pats!

She takes great interest in marine life, having over 20 different species of fish swimming in her big home aquariums, and loves going on outdoor adventures with her little Jack Russell Elroy.

In her free time, she does agility competitions with her little Tenterfield Terrier Pepper, as well as go hiking and exploring around Perth hills & beaches with her Rhodesian Ridgeback Marlon.
