Lynette Hollis - Practice Manager
Lynette, is the proud practice manager of VetLove Jimboomba. She has been nursing since 1996 and throughout her nursing career, she has worked in a range of specialist areas including ophthalmology, orthopaedics, internal medicine, surgery and exotics. Although her family of furry friends have dwindled due to the arrival of non – furry friends, I still have my cats, Perry and Sheldon, my dog, Bundy, and my horses, Mandrake and Jesse. My non – furry animals include my Son, Riley, and my twin girls, Keely and Aleksa, who keep me very busy!!
Michelle Ahern - Veterinary Nurse
I originally resided in Sydney and have been working as a qualified Veterinary Nurse since 2002. I started my nursing journey at Gladesville Veterinary Hospital, where I had the opportunity to work alongside some amazing vets including Dr Max Zuber, a specialist in small animal surgery, orthopaedics and oncology. My time at Gladesville gave me a wide range of knowledge and experience. Due to family, I moved to Queensland in 2007, in where my first child was born. When it was time to go back to work I became the Practice Manager at a Veterinary Clinic in Carrara for 9 years until my husband and I decided to build our first home further out from the coast. I now reside in Mundoolun and am over joyed to be apart of the Vetlove team. My household is a crazy house with two children, my hubby, our Mastiff Rory and Cockatiel Barry.

"My cat was hit by a car in front of our house last week. I rushed to the nearest vet, and even though I was not a client they took us in straight away. Sadly, he did not make it, but the staff were so lovely and gave me time and space to say my goodbyes. This week we received a lovely card from them in the mail. I will certainly be visiting this vet again when we get our next pet".
"Fantastic service, at Vetlove every vet we have seen has been great with our cat and now our new puppy! The little puppy goodie bag is adorable, she is chewing on the new toy now".
"I took my cat in on Saturday morning he was very sick from a tick he had picked up i can not thank Rachelle and her staff enough the care for my beautiful cat was outstanding the communication was 100% spot on i was called twice a day to be told my cats progress and how he was doing as well as the love and cuddles he received he was just treated like their own thank you for saving Smokys life i will never forget all of you".

"VetLove are wonderful, professional, loving care of my friends dog who sustained a nasty dog bite.The procedure fully explained, happy outcome after surgical procedure, after care explained in lay mans terms, cost very reasonable. Throughly recommend this wonderful vet practice. Also noticed how happy staff interact with each other, pet owners and our precious fur babies."
"My little girl Cinnamon very sadly, after putting up a good fight, didn't make it.Simon was her main vet while I also saw Lauren once.The day that I knew it was time to let my little girl go vet Lauren and Mallika were so respectful. Lauren was kind, empathetic, honest, gentle and allowed as much time as I needed to say goodbye. Thankyou".

We had to take our precious Burmese there and they could not have been more loving and caring as was quite a heartbreaking ordeal and lots of decisions to be made. very patient and thorough explaining everything to us several times and no judgment at all. Helped keep costs low whilst giving our baby the best treatment. Thank you so very much. see you in a week for a check up - 5 STARS most definitely!Coco and Latte our Burmese mummy and daughter"

"Thank you all at Vetlove so much for helping Little Bikkie with her laceration. She loved each and every one of you, and I do too! You are all so amazing and helpful and friendly and our little pickle will see you soon. Thank you!"
"This clinic has such welcoming and personable staff.They are very thorough with all of their examinations and has an obvious love of animals no matter how big or small. I had a German Shepherd puppy with an abnormal gait and a Russian Blue cat with plaque on his teeth. Despite the variances in conditions, both of my animals were treated with an equal amount of love and kindness from all the staff. 6 months on, my not so little puppy has a near to perfect gait and my feline prince has nice pearly whites again. All fees are charged at reasonable rates with the convenience of a regional location".
