Dr Anna Platt
Veterinarian BVSc (Hons) MVS
Anna graduated Dux of her year in 1989 from Melbourne University and began her career there as a Medical and Surgical Intern in Dogs and Cats. After completing her Masters of Veterinary Studies she worked as an Emergency Vet in Melbourne before travelling to England for some fun and more experience. In 1996 she joined Murray at the Middle Brighton Veterinary Centre.
Anna’s interests lie in medicine and animal behaviour and runs the Clinic’s Puppy Preschool Program. She is a compassionate vet & dedicated to the health and welfare of all the patients in the practice.
Growing up Anna always wanted to be a vet and has never been without a pet in her life. Family life if busy for Murray and Anna – they have two daughters, Madeline and Olivia – both now at University. Then there is Gina, their very cute and talented Border Terrier dog & Gina’s son, Tonic – who use to be a regular at Puppy Preschool – now she spends her Tuesday evenings curled up in her bed! They also have a third dog, Bella the very happy Pomeranian. Then there are their two cats – Truffles – a white cat – that is rarely every white and Cali – a very independent Tabby!
When not looking after her family and pets, Anna enjoys reading, sewing and walking Gina,Tonic & Bella. Her recent goals have been achieved – her motorbike licence & completing an intensive course in Diagnositic Ultrasound in Dogs and Cats by Distance Education. Her goal for 2019 – as always, is to fine tune the work life balance!
