Neeta Pollard

Veterinarian (BSc BVMS)

Neeta grew up in Perth and graduated with a BSc BVMS from Murdoch University in 1999.  As the student voted “most unlikely to go into large animal practice” she was assured when moved to Kalgoorlie for her first job that it was a small animal position, even though the clinic was mixed practice. As a result, she accidentally became a horse Vet, with significant time spent as the Vet on course at the races and the trots; a one-year stint in Kalgoorlie ended up being 7 years.

She left Kalgoorlie to return to Perth in 2007, focussed on the original plan of working as a small animal vet.

She has now been practising for over 21 years and feels so blessed to still love her job. Every day is different and often challenging, but always rewarding. She particularly enjoys soft tissue surgery and strives to ensure her patients have quicker recovery times, making life easier for you and your pets.
