Lakshmi N Murty Suri

Practice Owner (BVSc, MS (Biotechnology), PhD )

Dr. Lakshmi Suri brings a unique blend of experience and dedication to Mulgrave Veterinary Clinic. His passion for animals began in childhood, growing up with two German Shepherds in India. This passion led him to qualify as a veterinarian in India in 1996, followed by nearly two years serving the Department of Animal Husbandry.

Seeking broader knowledge, Dr. Suri embarked on a Master's degree in Biotechnology in Australia (1999-2000). He then applied his expertise as a poultry veterinarian for six years in India and the Middle East.

In 2006, a new chapter began as Dr. Suri moved to Australia. Driven by his enduring love for animals, he earned his PhD at UniSA, Adelaide (2012), researching lung surfactants in hibernating mammals. While initially pursuing research, his calling as a veterinarian persisted. In 2014, he rekindled this passion and re-qualified as a veterinarian in Australia after passing the National Veterinary Exams.

Since 2015, Dr. Suri has honed his skills in various small animal clinics across Sydney, regional NSW, SA, and Melbourne (since 2016). He is a dedicated and enthusiastic veterinarian, always seeking the latest advancements in small animal medicine and surgery through ongoing training and courses.

Siobhan Palmer-Dodd

Veterinary Nurse (Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing)

Siobhan's passion for animals started young,  during her high school days while working at a grooming boutique. From bathing and clipping pups of all sizes, she knew her path lay in caring for creatures great and small.

In 2022, she embarked on her official veterinary nursing journey at Mulgrave Veterinary Clinic, while simultaneously pursuing her Certificate IV at Box Hill Institute. Siobhan's dedication to professional development shines through, ensuring she brings the latest knowledge and skills to every interaction.

But her love for animals goes beyond formal education. Growing up with a diverse menagerie of pets – from Eeyore the Chinese Crested, Dobby the Devon Rex, to Zazu the chatty Eclectus parrot – instilled a deep understanding and emotional connection to various species. This personal experience fuels her empathy and allows her to connect with each pet on their individual level.
