Pet Doctors Thorndon is a relatively small clinic and growing under the direction of Dr Eve, our lead Veterinarian, and Virginia our Senior Nurse and Team Leader. We also have Drs Tracy and Rachel, and nurses Fiona, Mollie and Olivia. Our vets collectively draw on more than 40 years of experience whilst the nurses have clocked up over 35 years, so they’re catching the vets up fast!!
It’s an all-female clinic and, whilst this is not by design, it is quite fitting because the clinic sits in the shadow of the Kate Sheppard apartments and the Beehive, servicing the community who live and work in the business district of Wellington. Our community also extends along the dockside of the City right up to the foothills of the Rimutakas and even up the Kapiti Coast. We are close to the CBD and welcome drop-offs before work with no additional charge.
We see mainly dogs and cats, and have a growing number of pocket pets and exotics, which is super fun because it reflects the staff’s own menagerie. Our clinic is three years old and we are excited to be branching out to offer extra services to the Wellington region, including welcoming Dr Angela Hartman, a specialist in radiology and ultrasonography. As the spring and summer get underway, we look forward to welcoming lots of new clients and companions through the doors.

Veterinarian - BVSc & MANZCVS
Rachel has worked in first opinion practice since graduating in 1997. She has been based in Wellington & London where she worked for the Royal Veterinary College teaching final year students. Since moving to NZ she has combined veterinary practice with being a mum.
Rachel very much enjoys the variety that goes with being a veterinarian. She gets a special thrill out of seeing the human-animal bond in action & helping families enjoy pet ownership.
She has a very sweet but not very smart 'mamacat'. However Rachel thinks she is a wonderful companion to her 3 children. Although Rachel loves pets, she has a fear of snails!
Virginia is a passionate animal lover and has been working as a veterinary nurse in Wellington for the last four years, previously at the SPCA. She joined the Pet Doctors team in September after spending six months travelling around Europe. Gin enjoys working in the veterinary industry as it offers so much diversity and opportunity to indulge her interests in critical care and surgery.
Veterinarian Nurse - CVN
Mollie graduated with a certificate in vet nursing in 2013 and is currently studying toward her diploma through Otago Polytechnic. She loves getting to know clients and their much loved pets. She shares her home with her adopted stray cat Roscoe.
Your pets, our patients, are our world.
We're dedicated to making that world happier and healthier.
