    Graeme graduated from Murdoch University in 1990 and worked in mixed practice on the outskirts of Perth for 10 years before joining the Ranford Veterinary Hospital in 2000 and becoming a partner in 2001.  Graeme enjoys surgery, particularly orthopaedics and also completed a post-graduate course in emergency medicine and critical care in 2011. Outside of work he is kept very busy by his two teenage boys and has been actively involved in coaching and managing at the Booragoon Bulldogs Junior Football Club for a number of years.  In 2014 his efforts were recognised by being awarded junior coach of the year for the East Fremantle district.  Graeme's family includes a little tortoiseshell cat "Cous-cous" who came to our clinic as stray about 7 years ago.

  • Dr Kelly Kilgour

    Kelly graduated from Murdoch University with first class honours in 1991, and started working in mixed practice in Northam. She then spent a year working in England before returning to Perth in 1995 to work in Midland and Bullsbrook. After taking a year away from veterinary science to work for her parents on their sheep station, she returned to Perth to take up a position at Ranford Vets in 2000, and became a partner in 2015. Kelly has a special interest in soft tissue surgery and enjoys canine and feline medicine. She is passionate about the relationship between pets and their owners and believes that owning a pet enhances your life. Away from work Kelly enjoys travelling, and she was lucky enough to live in Switzerland for 3 years from 2007. She also plays tennis and  spends a fair bit of time watching her 2 teenage sons playing sport and music. Kelly is besotted with her beautiful, little King Charles Cavalier Spaniel called 'Sherbie".

  • Dr Sally Hewitt

    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.

  • Dr Julie Weekes

    Julie graduated from Murdoch University in 2000.  She grew up having a large variety of pets and has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 8 years old.  She has worked at Ranford Veterinary Hospital on and off since 2002, taking leave for each of her two children.  Julie’s main interests are dermatology, dog behavioural issues and general medicine.  She has an 11 year old Cavoodle and adopted her first rescue dog, Lucy, three years ago.  Lucy has not been an easy dog to live with so Julie has learned a great deal about managing a stressed out, anxious dog!  Julie’s other passions are Ancient History, Latin and Ancient Greek and she is currently finishing Honours in Arts at the University of Western Australia.
