Team Leader & Veterinary Nurse - Dinsdale

  • DipVN

Regan graduated from Massey University in 2006. She started as a new graduate with Pet Doctors and has worked her way up to a Senior Vet Nurse. She also had a short stint teaching Vet nursing but preferred the hands on work. Her interests are anaesthesia, in-patient nursing and she would like up skill on little critters.

Outside of work Regan enjoys spending time with family and friends, walking, reading and swimming. She shares her home with her fiance, step daughter, 1 year old daughter, an old dog named Buster and two spoiled cats called Minnie and Maxine.




Since graduating with a Certificate in Veterinary Nursing I have been fortunate to join the Pet Doctors group in July 2015. I have a special interest in animal behaviour and also love being involved with the surgery role.

I have a few pets in my household including my Rottweiler Minder, 2 cats Spooks and Lucky and my cockatiel Rambo. In my spare time I enjoy boxing, netball as competitive sport.



Kathy is an extremely experienced Vet Nurse at Pet Doctors, with over 20 years' experience at our clinic. Kathy has been a Vet Nurse from the age of 20 and has a special interest in surgery and any 'abnormal' special cases. As well as caring for your pets, Kathy, her husband and daughters care for Tiki & Lulu their two Shih-Tzu crosses, Penelope their cockatiel, Bubbles & Squirtels their two cats, and Lola & Daisy the Flemish Giant Rabbits - so there is nothing Kathy cannot handle! Kathy is very knowledgeable and will be more than happy to answer your questions. Ask for Kathy at your next visit to Pet Doctors Dinsdale.
