Dr Toni Cockburn
Veterinarian / Practice Owner
(BSc BVMS MANZCVS)
I grew up in Far North Queensland, and for as long as I can remember had a passion for helping orphaned and injured animals and wildlife. Ours was the house that was “always home to a furred or feathered friend in need”. In 1999, I completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Science at James Cook University in Townsville, before moving to Perth in 2000 to achieve my dream of becoming a Veterinary Surgeon.
I graduated from Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Biology and Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery in 2003 and have since worked at a number of practices in NSW and WA. In 2017, I established Perth Pet Vet Mobile Service.
Due to a love of birds, I undertook further study, and in 2012, after successfully completing exams, was granted membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Avian Health. I am one of the few veterinarians with this membership in Western Australia.
In January 2019 I opened Perth Pet Vet, a purpose built, modern and fully equipped Veterinary Hospital.
Outside of work, I am kept busy with my four young children, my incredibly supportive husband and our flock of furred and feather companions.
