Dr Merridie Fury

Dr Merridie founded Tweed Coast Vet in 1995. With over 30 years experience as a vet she is our most experienced vet, and an excellent surgeon.

Dr Merridie has continued to study and train in medicine and new surgery techniques, learning new techniques for hip and knee techniques. She is excellent at orthopaedic surgery such as fracture repairs, and repairing cruciate ligaments. She is also excellent when it comes to finding the ball that Rover accidentally ate, or removing that big tumour on Bluey’s spleen.

Dr Merridie spends her time with her dog Fang, and husband Jim. She is “Mardi” to her 3 grandchildren, and manages to sing in the choir in her spare time (When she has any!)

Dr Rachael Parsons

Rachael started at the Tweed Coast Vet shortly after graduating from the University of Queensland and we have been lucky to have her ever since!

Rachael has a keen interest in dentistry and takes pride in ensuring the pets of Cabarita have lovely smiles to share around. She has been the driving force in new dental techniques and is the reason our clinic is equipped with the absolute latest in dental equipment and digital dental X-ray machines.

When not at work, Rachael enjoys spending time with her family including her dog, Alice, and her cat, Oskar.

Dr Emma Masini

Dr Emma joined us in 2013 when she moved from Melbourne to be nearer her family in the Tweed Valley.

Emma is enthusiastic about all aspects of veterinary science and loves to help people with their pets. She genuinely cares about making sure your animal is as healthy as possible and loves getting to the bottom of tricky medical cases.

Away from work, Emma’s gorgeous daughter Willow keeps her on her toes. She is also kept busy with her mischievous Labrador, Fudge, her cat Cam, her giant rabbit Pancake and a myriad of alpacas.

Dr Anna Hugenholtz

Dr Anna comes to us with a global outlook on veterinary science. Anna was trained in the UK, and graduated from Bristol University in 2009.

She moved to Australia in 2013, and spent several years locuming around the country. During this time she has had the opportunity to learn and train under a wide variety of people, learning a variety of different techniques and skills.

While Dr Anna enjoys all aspects of veterinary work, she has a particular interest in Internal Medicine and making sick pets well again. She makes a valuable addition to our team!

Dr Sara Kingsley

Dr Merridie’s daughter, Dr Sara is still seen around the clinic from time to time. She mainly works in Brisbane, but comes down regularly to help Dr Merridie with managing the practice, and helping with administrative work.

On the veterinary side, Dr Sara has a special interest in ultrasonography and will often come down to perform ultrasounds when required, enjoying the change of pace and the sea-side air.

Secretly though, the real reason Dr Sara comes down to visit is that she misses Fang. Fang is the golden labradoodle who thinks she runs the clinic, and hasn’t yet realised that she is a dog. We’ve created a staff page specially for her as the Chief Treat Taster,
