  • Dr Graeme Fitzgerald
    Veterinarian and Practice Partner

    Dr Graeme is our most senior veterinary surgeon with almost 30 years of working experience under his belt, having first spent 10 years in mixed practice after graduation from Murdoch University in 1990 before settling into small animal care at Ranford Vet. He has been our practice owner since 2001 and our main man for orthopaedic surgeries, such as cruciate ligament repairs in small to medium sized dogs and cats, alongside other expertise in medical and surgical cases.

    When not in his signature blue clinic coat on the premise, Dr Graeme takes great pride tending to the beautiful greenery that surrounds our clinic. A man of many passions, he cycles in his down time and his love for sports also extends to coaching and managing the Booragoon Bulldogs Football Club for a fair few years now, which earned him the deserving award for Junior Coach of the Year in 2014.

  • Dr Kelly Kilgour
    Veterinarian and Practice Partner

    Dr Kelly is our second most senior and experienced veterinarian and, practice owner of Ranford Vet since 2015. She graduated with first class honours in 1991 from Murdoch University and, worked in various parts of WA and spent a year in England before settling down at Ranford Vet in 2000. Dr Kelly enjoys soft tissue surgery (especially eyelids) and, both canine and feline medicine. She strongly believes that the symbiotic relationship between pets and their people mutually enhances the quality of each other's lives.

    A proud mother of two boys, Dr Kelly regularly supports them in their sports and music events eagerly, and she plays quite a bit of tennis herself on Tuesdays. She is always on the lookout for new hobbies and interests to undertake so ask her next time you see her what she is into right now! 

    She is pictured here with her third child, "Sherbie", who is a very well-behaved but very spoiled Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

    Sally graduated from Onderstepoort, University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2003. She moved across to the UK and worked in small animal practice for 4 years. In 2008 she moved back to South Africa where she worked in a community veterinary clinic, providing low cost veterinary care to those in need, as well as in private practice. Sally emigrated to Perth with her husband and son in 2014. She has worked locally in Bull Creek and Canning Vale since, starting with us in December 2016. Sally loves the day to day work of veterinary care, improving the lives of companion animals from vaccinations to complicated medical and surgical cases. Otherwise Sally is spending time with her young son, gardening, reading and looking after their two stray cat adoptions, Kay Kay and Lou Lou.

  • Dr Wanlin Lin
  • Dr Joanna Shih

    With her oldest cat "Yin Yang" in tow, Joanna moved from Singapore to Perth in 2006 to pursue studies in veterinary medicine at Murdoch University. Joanna spent all of her academic years working as a veterinary nurse on weekends at Ranford Vet, while collecting her menagerie of Ranford stray cats: "Taiyo" (pictured), "Poppy", "Wesker" and "Waffles" the rabbit! After graduating in 2013, Joanna worked in several small animal practices in Perth before settling back with the Ranford family, this time, as a veterinarian in July 2017. Joanna enjoys meeting people and their pets from all walks of life, and has a deep respect for the human-animal bond that people share with their pets. Her current interests are endocrinology (the study of hormonal diseases), dentistry and the odd creative abscess surgery. Outside of work, Joanna enjoys experimenting food recipes for her toddler, watching movies of all genres (except the paranormal) and getting fit through military-style physical training.
