Professional Bio

Ellen is an Australian vet who is currently combining her love of writing with traveling and working across the UK as a relief vet. Ellen graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2012 and is passionate about all things small animal health. Since graduating she has worked in clinical practice, including at a university teaching hospital in New Zealand.

Ellen’s areas of interest revolve around companion animals. She enjoys preventative health, husbandry and home care, and nutrition. She’s also led a charity neutering clinic in Samoa!

When not at work, Ellen enjoys modern calligraphy and yoga. She did her 200 hour yoga teacher training in Greece!

Ellen’s Pets

Dr Ellen doesn’t currently have any pets at her new home. She had to leave her 8 year old Flemish Giant rabbit, ‘Gatsby’, in Australia when she went travelling. She misses him a lot, but he wouldn’t have enjoyed all the plane journeys! Ellen has always dreamed of having a Borzoi – maybe this will be her year!
