opened in Hamilton and even though it has had varied premises over the years, is now firmly established as a neighbourhood icon.

Veterinary Nurse

Before joining Pet Doctors Hillcrest, Rebekah worked at an emergency veterinary clinic in Auckland. She worked there for a year before deciding to move back home to Hamilton to be closer to family. Her favourite part about being a vet nurse is being able to watch an animal become its normal healthy self again after going through a huge ordeal. Rebekah has a special interest in physiotherapy and would love to expand on this.

Rebekah has a bird named Pearl who is a cockatiel. She has a lot of attitude and tells you all about how angry she is when you do something she doesn't like. Pearl goes crazy for all of her favourite treats!



Originally from Wales, Keira moved over with her mum, dad and younger brother and has been in New Zealand for 6 years. She graduated in 2016 from Wintec and has just started working at Pet Doctors Hillcrest. Keira enjoys exercise, reading, watching TV series/movies. She's also very intrigued by animal behaviour and would like to learn more. Keira has plenty of pets! Azlan the kitten, Bryn the Labrador, Coy the Muscovy duck, a fish and 2 frogs.
