Meet Dr. Sophie Nielsen

team

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.
