Georgie Hollingdrake
Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse
Georgie joined the St Bernard's Road Veterinary Clinic Nursing team in March 2021.

Georgie started her Veterinary Nursing studies in 2014, and later completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2016, gaining a traineeship with one of the north’s most progressive clinics. Over her years of working, she has gained a special interest in our furry feline friends, alongside nutrition, cytology and working on the fear free approach for pets and humans alike.

She has always loved and been surrounded by animals growing up, from guinea pigs and chickens, to cats and dogs, so she felt working with animals was her calling even from a young age. She loves to get out in nature (hiking, swimming, surfing, running) and enjoys creating art, but most of all she loves to spend time with her pets (Bella the cat, Syd the dog and all the chickens who live at her parent’s place), her friends/housemates (and their cat Zeph) and her family.

Georgie moved back to the city after a small hiatus travelling around Australia in a van with her partner Jack, and is very excited to join and keep growing and expanding her knowledge with the St. Bernards Road family.

Sumo
The Clinic Cat
Sumo joined the St Bernard's Road Veterinary Clinic Cat team in April 2021.

She has moved down from Berri - this gives you some insight into her past history as a Clinic Cat at RivaPetz Pet Care.

Sumo' was first brought into the clinic as a stray, needing a caring and loving home. Most unwanted cats and kittens are put up for adoption but this one seemed different.

When "Sumo" was first let out of her cage, to have the run of the clinic, she hopped right out and set about inspecting everything and everyone. We all fell in love with her! We soon began to realise that she would make the perfect clinic cat. She settled into clinic life really well, equally dividing her daily time with each staff member. She is such a sweet and affectionate cat, but also has a devilish streak within her, she is far from being the little lady - she will roar in and out of each room sounding like a freight train.

Little did we know that she would go on to develop ringworm! Earning her the name the ‘ringworm infected thug' or ‘Ompa Lumpa'.

Her favourite pastimes are spending time at the front counter where she can meet and greet all of our clients and patients or the warm fax machine in Jenni's office but, she still manages to catch up on some sleep in-between the hectic jobs of being the clinic cat.

Sumo is enjoying her move to the city, and is looking forward to being promoted to Clinic Co-ordinator in the near future.
Freckle
Sumo's Offsider
Freckle joined the St Bernard's Road Veterinary Clinic Cat team in April 2021.

She has moved down from Berri - this gives you some insight into her past history as a Clinic Cat at RivaPetz Pet Care.

Freckle was dumped at RIvaPetz Pet Care, and despite our best efforts to find her a loving home, she has now permanently become Sumo's offsider (or alternatively partner in crime). Her passion is jumping from great heights, and as a result has injured both of her knees, necessitating surgery on her right knee.

Her favourite past time is to sleep in the treatment room cupboards, and say "boo" to anyone who opens the door.

Her most recent trick was to test whether the RSPCA money box on the front counter bounces - unfortunately she found out the hard way that it doesn't!
