Sally McPhie

Veterinarian & Practice Owner (BVSc)

Sally graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney in 1998 and initially began working in rural mixed practice in Yass, then Griffith and Hay, and finally Cooma.  After having children she returned to university and completed a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery before returning to veterinary practice. 

She purchased The 'Summer Street Vet Clinic' from the previous owner Dr Sarah Britton at the end of 2013, and moved with her partner Scott and her boys to the beautiful town of Orange which they now call home. They live on a property on the outskirts of town where they share their piece of paradise with an old pony, 3 cats, a rabbit, a paddock full of sheep and 'Pirate' the wannabe sheepdog. 

You'll find Sally at the clinic most days, usually out the front consulting with a packet of treats to spoil your pets and make them feel relaxed and welcome.
