Meet Dr. Megan Thomas


West Gippsland Vet Care has been servicing the Gippsland area for over 20 years.

Opened in Warragul in 1989 by local vets Bruce Robertson and Joe Brady many locals will fondly remember the clinic as Robertson & Brady Veterinary Clinic.

In 2005 we undertook a major extension and renovation and changed our name to West Gippsland Veterinary Centre, to reflect its commitment to the wider Gippsland area, and to recognise Dr Joe Brady, Dr Grant Nielsen and Dr Benton Smith joining together as owners.

In 2008 we took over from the retiring Mike Traumanis in Drouin and in 2010 we renovated and relocated our Drouin practice to the lovely building it now occupies.

Joe Brady retired in 2014 and Simon Ronalds joined the partnership. We took this opportunity to tweak our name to West Gippsland Vet Care to better embrace our dual locations.

West Gippsland Vet Care has 12 experienced Veterinary Surgeons, which ensures that all animals can be seen and all types of services can be offered to our clients. The Vets are supported by 12 support staff of Veterinary Nurses, Receptionists and Administration Staff to ensure that the clinic runs smoothly.

We hope that the following photos and short biography's will help you recognise our staff next time you visit.

Megan Thomas
Veterinarian BVSc(Hons) MACVSc(Medicine)
Meg graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2000 and first joined the practice in January 2001. She worked for the clinic as a large and small animal vet for three years before heading off to travel.

In 2004 Meg spent a year traveling around Australia and working as a locum in predominantly small animal practices in various parts of the country. Then in 2005 she worked in a small animal practice in Birmingham, England, before traveling through Europe for 3 months. After her 2 years of travel, Meg returned to Warragul to rejoin the practice.

Meg’s interests lie in small animal medicine and more recently she has been working predominantly in the clinic with the small animals. In 2003 she completed a distance education course in Dermatology through the University of Sydney. In 2008 she became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Internal Medicine. In 2011 she completed another distance education course, this time in small animal emergency medicine and critical care.

Meg is currently studying for a PhD at the University of Melbourne. Her project, under the supervision of Professor Chris Whitton, is an investigation into joint disease in horses. She continues to work one day a week in the practice and can usually be found at the Drouin clinic.

In her spare time Meg enjoys running, reading and scuba diving. She has two cats of her own - tabby-cats called Lexi and Rupert. She still loves to travel and would like to see as much of the world as possible.
