We pride ourselves on providing the best veterinary care and services for your pets.
Since 1995, we have been providing general practice veterinary health care to the pets of Kallangur and surrounding suburbs Murrumba Downs, Griffin, North Lakes, Petrie, Dakabin and Kurwongbah.
We started out as Anzac Avenue Veterinary Surgery located only one kilometre from our present location. Throughout our name and location changing, we have continued to deliver friendly, professional and compassionate veterinary healthcare. Just like our new name suggests, we focus on maintaining our patients' wellness in addition to treating their illnesses.
We strongly value our independence as it enables us to give the best advice that we can regarding pet health issues. We have a strong network of trusted veterinary specialists in many different fields that we use whenever circumstances require.
We feel that it is important to give a little back to the community. We do this by providing our services for a reduced cost to the Peninsula Animal Aid - a Moreton Bay Regional Shire charity - dedicated to providing care and new homes for the less fortunate pets in our society. We would encourage everyone to consider supporting this or any other animal charity.
Dr Greg Martin has been a vet since the late 80s. Several years in mixed and small animal practice in New Zealand followed graduation, leading to a focus on feline medicine and Australian College membership in the mid-90s. A move across the Tasman was prompted by the offer of a scholarship to study the clinical management of feline diabetes at the University of Queensland, resulting in a PhD degree in 2001. With a post-grad degree in hand the northern hemisphere beckoned, and Greg spent the next 10 years or so living in and travelling around Europe and North America doing clinical research and project management in the animal health industry. When he’d had enough of the long cold winters he made the move back to Australia, living in Melbourne and then in Sydney. Four years ago he moved back to Southeast Queensland and returned to general veterinary practice, where his focus remains on internal medicine with a particular interest in endocrinology. When not vetting, he takes care of the world’s best-looking pair of Border Collies and a cat with gimpy legs. Greg’s other likes include wandering about in the bush, listening to loud music, and making things out of wood.
Valerie studied BioVeterinary Science at the University of Liverpool, UK, after which she went on the complete her vet degree at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. After eight years in the UK, she looked for better weather, which lead her to move to Australia. Valerie started her career in Mildura doing both large and small animal work. She then moved around doing locum work visiting various places in Australia and has joined the Wellpets team in March 2019. She has now settled in Brisbane and enjoyed being close to both the ocean and mountains. In her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking, and camping.
Helen graduated from the University of Queensland in 2009. After this, she spent several years in a busy and diverse mixed practice on the outskirts of Brisbane where she saw many different cases and animal species for both routine and emergency conditions. Helen joined the Wellpets team in 2014, where she enjoyed honing her skills in small animal practice.
In 2018 Helen took a brief break from small animal general practice and ventured into the world of emergency work. After discovering her love of a good night’s sleep, she returned to the team at Wellpets Kallangur in January 2019.
During her working hours, Helen enjoys medicine cases and getting to know her patients and their families. She enjoys the challenge of working through cases, collaborating with local specialists and getting to the bottom of problems.
Outside of work, Helen enjoys travel, cooking and a good book. She also enjoys keeping up with the resident Tenterfield Terrier, Ava, who rules the house, entertains endlessly and loves long walks along the beach (or anywhere really… let’s be honest!).
