Dr Alison Wardman
BVSc(Merit) MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine) B.A.
Alison has been part of our Primary Care team since 2016. She graduated from Sydney University Veterinary Science in 2008 and worked in a Country Mixed Animal Practice in NSW for 5 years. She then moved back to Sydney and worked primarily as a locum small animal Veterinarian before joining our team at UVTHS in 2016. Alison passed her membership exams in 2018 and was proud to become a member of the small animal medicine chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.
Alison has a passion for small animal medicine and dentistry. Her next career goal is to sit the exams for her memberships in Small Animal dentistry and oral Surgery.
She loves teaching Veterinary students and helping pets and their owners through providing excellence in Veterinary care. She finds it particularly rewarding to establish a long-term relationship with clients and their pets where she can follow a pet through the different stages of their life.
In the past, Alison has helped run a ferret rescue group and she has owned ferrets herself (as well as almost every other pet you can name). She loves treating pocket pets in addition to dogs and cats.
Outside of work Alison is kept busy with her young daughter, two tiny rescued chihuahuas with neurological disorders, and two rescued cats. She has been known to adopt a considerable number of small dogs with “special needs” when they have come across her path, and at one stage she had nine small dogs at once! Alison also loves horse riding and has a paint horse called Zorro.
Alison loves her job at UVTHS and can’t ever see herself working anywhere else.
