ABOUT » Our Vets » Dr Alana Shrubsole-Cockwill BSc(Hons) HonsCert(Sc) DVM MVSc

Alana Graduated from WCVM (Western College of Veterinary Medicine) in 2003. in the beautiful but land-locked prairie province of Saskatchewan, Canada. In 2004 she completed a one-year internship at WCVM in ZEW (zoologic, exotic and wildlife medicine). She loved the ZEW field so much that she continued on to complete a ZEW residency and a Masters in Veterinary Science in 2007 (with a focus on disease survey and health assessment of free-ranging British Columbia sea otters).

She then had a fantastic time at The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, where there was a never-ending amount of cheeky owls and stubborn eagles to treat. Alana then moved to Sydney in early 2008 and worked with Sydney Exotics and Rabbit Vets until late 2012, where she soon learned that Boobook owls began to rival dolphins as her favourite animal.

After having a beautiful baby girl in September 2012, Alana and her partner decided to move closer to family in Canada. As many of her clients still ask for her, we'd like to let you know that she is loving family life back home!
