What is Creature Clinic

An online resource with the lofty goal of changing the world, one furry family member at a time. It’s a cozy, friendly place, where no question is a stupid question and help is only a pee-mail away.
The blog section is loaded with current, up-to-date information on pet health and behaviour issues – all based on a decade of experience as a small animal vet and carefully checked to be in line with the latest scientific research. Of course there is also the occasional tale from the vet clinic thrown in. When your patients are as adorable as mine are it can’t be helped! Poorly drawn cartoons and terrible jokes lurk here and there within the pages, but as yet there is no information presented in the form of interpretive dance. I said as yet.

ABOUT DR. JO BVSc (hons) BSc


I’m Jo and I’m a practicing small animal veterinarian based in Melbourne, Australia. Working in partnership with loving pet owners to ensure their fur-kids remain happy, healthy family members life-long is what brings me joy.


I also enjoy taking naps, smooching my cheeky cat Loki, playing fetch with my dogs, and giving my kids sneaky ninja bear hugs. My two little boys are growing up with a wonderful love for animals that makes my heart swell with happiness, and my husband displays extraordinary tolerance for my tendency to bring work home.
I strongly believe that helping to maintain the wonderful bond between a pet and their human is reason enough for a happy dance.
