Dr Elmie Nel

Senior Small Animal Veterinarian - BVSc

Elmie has come to Pet Doctors Mt Eden from South Africa, where she graduated from Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute in 1998 with a Bachelor in Veterinary Science. She then spent the next 5 years in the UK working and travelling the world. After working beside a number of great vets (and her backpack became too heavy with souvenirs!) she returned to South Africa and settled close to family in the Winelands of Western Cape where she worked in a large, referral clinic for 5 years. In 2010, Elmie and her husband immigrated to Auckland where they have been since then.

Elmie enjoys the challenge that veterinary medicine offers and how no 2 days are the same.

She has one 12-year-old cat named Joey who made the journey with Elmie from South Africa. In her spare time, you'll find Elmie scuba diving!



Veterinarian Nurse & Team Leader

Before moving to Auckland in 2011, Krysta grew up in Whakatane with a family who runs a beekeeping business. She graduated from UNITEC in 2015 with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. Krysta's favourite part about being a veterinary nurse is providing animals with the best care, especially when they are unwell. She has a keen interest in cat friendly handling in order to reduce stress in our feline friends.

Krysta has one naughty ginger tabby cat and in winter, you can find her hitting the slopes on her snowboard.
