Dr. Perrine Neretti
Practice Owner | Clinic Director | Veterinary Surgeon
Dr. P grew up between France and the Ivory Coast. Inspired by a documentary on The Northern Territory Wildlife Park, she purchased a one way ticket to Australia when she was only 19, and never looked back!
After her graduation from Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia in 2002, and a 4 years stint in Darwin, she spent time working across Australia & Europe, including the Specialist Animal Referral Hospital in Sydney. Finally, in 2008, she settled in Adelaide with her husband, and the Glen Osmond Veterinary Clinic was born.
An astute surgeon, she also has a strong passion for Naturopathy, Dermatology and Radiology. Dr P is renowned for her caring, patience, and her broad mind. She will do whatever it takes to help you and your pets.
Outside of work, you'll find Dr. P spending time with her 3 young boys, in her garden, bush walking, travelling, or reading. Her 2 beautiful border collies are never far away from the family action.
Dr. Beatrice Chan
Dr. Beatrice came to us for work placement in early April 2018 and impressed the team so much, we decided she was worth waiting for! She will begin working in January 2019 as a full time vet alongside Dr. P. However, you may see Bea's friendly face around the clinic on Saturday mornings, as she fits in some clinic time around her busy University schedule!
Dr. Bea has a keen interest in diagnostic imaging & looks forward to advancing her skills in both radiology and ultrasonography.
Outside of work & uni, she enjoys playing badminton, baking, and dabbles in a bit of photography.
Practice Manager | Head Nurse
Talia started her career part-time in 2012 while she undertook a Bachelor of Animal Science. A few months in, she had fallen so in love with the job that she quit university to become a full time Veterinary Nurse and hasn't looked back!
With a huge passion for the industry, Talia transitioned into management in 2017 and loves the new challenges it brings. She works primarily in the office and out the back - training staff, developing in-house continued education and colaborating with Dr P on ways to add more value to the eastern suburbs community.
She is often found taking care of surrendered local wildlife - helping to rehabilitate them for release. This passion saw her living in Vietnam for a month, where she volunteered at Hoi An's only western medicine veterinary clinic and rescue facility - Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue. She hopes to become more involved with animal rescue and travel again in the future.
Talia has a huge love of all animals, big & small. Her home is run by two rescue cats - Harley & Katara; and a very chatty Alexandrine Parakeet - Floki.
Veterinary Nurse | Puppy School Instructor
Lauren completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in November 2016 and has since grown into our primary surgical nurse. She has also developed a love for animal behaviour that sees her leading our Puppy Pre-School classes every Wednesday night. She is very proud of the achievements she has made so far and looks forward to attending conferences and undertaking further education later this year.
Lauren has 3 cats at home - all clinic rescues - and one you may already know... Moustachat! She also has a lorikeet named Pickle who loves to think he runs the household.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys spending time with family, friends and her partner.

After working in child care for 12 years, Stephanie decided it was time for a career change and joined the GOVC team in 2016. She is about to undertake her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing and is excited to further her skills, knowledge and industry presence.
Stephanie has a passion for wildlife which saw her travel to Sri Lanka in March 2017. Seeing all sorts of animals in conservation sanctuaries and orphanages, from elephants and leopards to sea turtles. After witnessing first hand how different their life is and how some of their living conditions broke her heart, this made her more determined to help better the lives of the animals living in these sorts of places.

Trainee Veterinary Nurse
Alex's interest in the industry began when she was just a little girl, and saw her undertake a Bachelor of Animal Science at Adelaide University. After tossing up between Veterinary and Zoology, she made the transition into the Cert IV through Open Colleges. She loves that every day is different and that there is always something new to learn.
Alex has a 7 year old Cavoodle named Honey and enjoys playing field hockey, rowing and keeping active!
Work Placement Student
Rachael has spent the last 10 years working in administration, but ever since she was a young child, had a passion for all things Veterinary. She decided in 2016 that admin was no longer feeding her soul, so signed up to undertake her Certificate II in Animal Studies. Now studying her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, Rachael is attending work placement 2-3 days a week around her part-time job and finds it challenging, reqarding and is very satisfied with her decision to chase her dreams.
Outside of the clinic, Racheal is an active member of the online nursing community and loves to walk (or be walked by?!) her Kelpie, Socks. She is an avid wine lover and enjoys spending time with her partner.
Clinic Cat | Master Nap Taker
Calamar was brought into the clinic along with his two brothers after being found dumped at a warehouse. Their mother was nowhere to be found and so a kind soul brought them into the clinic.
All 3 kittens suffered badly from ringworm, malnutrition & neglect but showed such spirit we didnt have the heart to let them go. So after weeks of treatment, love and patience, they we're ready for new homes!
Calamar's brother, Hugo, now lives with Nurse Lauren; and his other brother, Althie, lives with her friend. Calamar had such a boisterous and loving personality that we just couldnt say goodbye and now he lives here at the clinic with us!
