Meet Our Team


Toni Cockburn

Veterinarian (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. 

I have a special interest in birds, and in 2012 successfully completed exams and 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 eqipped Veterinary Hopital. 

Outside of work  I am kept busy with my four young children, my incredibly supportive husband and our flock of furred and feather companions. 

Jodie Richards

Veterinary Nurse (BSc BioSc/ConsWildBio, Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing )

I am a city girl with a country heart. I grew up in the southern suburbs of Perth but I was fortunate to have a family who nurtured and encouraged my love and curiosity for all things furred, feathered and scaled. I graduated from Murdoch University in 2011 with a degree in biology and conservation. During my final two years of study I worked at a local vet hospital as a receptionist. I went on to qualify as a vet nurse in 2012 at Applied Vocational Training and was awarded the Highest Academic Achievement. I have a special interest in wildlife, conservation and animal behaviour. My favourite thing about being a vet nurse is running puppy preschool classes. I was recently bitten by the herpetofauna bug and now I can’t get enough of reptiles! I live on five acres with the love of my life, a horse named Smoke. Oh, and my husband! We have a growing menagerie of other animal friends, including a pet kangaroo named Moo.

Carmel Ozanne

Veterinary Nurse (BSc BioSci(Hons), Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing)

As with almost all vet nurses and vets you meet, I have always had a love of animals, so working with them came as a natural step after completing a Biology Degree with honours from Murdoch University in 1998.  I did a brief stint working at an outdoor piggery in Mt Barker (& believe me a Mummy Pig can run really fast!) before beginning my vet nurse training at Bentley Tafe in 2001.  I am blessed to have 2 beautiful girls with my awesome husband and one very patient (toddler alert!) blue heeler x stumpy tailed cattle dog named Clancy.  I’ve been lucky enough to work with some fantastic people throughout my career and been taught so much, but one never stops learning and I look forward to continuing this journey with Dr Toni and the wonderful staff at Perth Pet Vet.
