About Us

Wembley Veterinary Hospital was established in 1939. Since then, we have grown to become a well-respected practice, servicing the hospital, grooming and boarding needs of pets throughout the western suburbs of Perth.

The Wembley Veterinary Hospital practices a high standard of care and is focused on maintaining the health, welfare and comfort of its patients.  It believes in preventing disease wherever possible, but also is able to put the pieces back together when things sometimes go wrong.  Their outstanding care was recently recognised by being awarded a "Hospital of Excellence" award by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association.  They are one of only 4 Hospitals in Perth to have received this distinguished award.  You can read more about the award here - http://www.ava.com.au/asava/hospital-accreditation-scheme/asava-hospitals-excellence

Dr Garry Edgar is the owner and manager of the Hospital. He is originally from Perth and was trained at the Murdoch University Campus. He graduated in 1990. Garry commenced with the Wembley Veterinary Hospital in 1995, working briefly with the previous owner, Dr George Endacott. At the end of 1995 George retired after 23 years working at the Hospital, and Dr Edgar took over from him.

Dr Edgar became only the third veterinarian to have managed the Wembley Veterinary Hospital since 1940. Dr Edgar has many special interests, including Feline Medicine, Reconstructive (plastic) and Orthopaedic Surgery, Dermatology and Endocrinology (hormones). As well as his Veterinary work, Dr Edgar has served on various professional bodies and committees within the Veterinary Profession.  Like many Veterinarians, he is committed to Animal Welfare and has served on the Western Australian Emergency Welfare Advisory Committee and his interests in Cats resulted in him becoming a member of the Advisory Committee implementing the new Cat Act.

Dr Edgar is supported by Drs Kristen Holloway, Fiona Biemel and Kate Webber, as well as 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 trainee Veterinary Nurses and 3 Groomers.

Dr Kristen Holloway graduated from Murdoch University Veterinary School in 1997.  Kristen’s first 10 years of practice were in a mixed animal practice just north of Perth, treating domestic and a wide range of farm animals.  Since then Kristen has worked in small animal practices in Melbourne and Perth.  She has undertaken the International Veterinary Acupuncture course and attended numerous Feline Medicine Conferences and has a keen interest in Feline Medicine and Dentistry.

Dr Kate Webber grew up in a family where pets of all shapes and sizes were a regular feature.  It was no surprise, therefore, that Kate studied veterinary science and graduated from The University of Melbourne in 2001.  Kate began work in a busy mixed animal practice north of Melbourne, treating dogs, cats, alpacas, cows, sheep and horses.  After three years in mixed practice and with a desire to broaden her horizons, she moved to Europe.  In the UK Kate undertook several long and short term locum positions in various locations, treating mostly dogs and cats but also rabbits, guinea pigs and even hamsters.  Kate has many professional interests, but particularly enjoys canine and feline internal medicine, and dermatology. She has completed a postgraduate course in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Sydney.  Kate joined the Wembley Veterinary Hospital in 2009 and currently works part time.  When she is not busy at work, Kate and her husband Bruce have their hands full looking after her two young boys and also enjoys exploring the culinary diversity and natural beauty of different countries.

All of the Veterinarians of the Wembley Veterinary Hospital are members of the Australian Veterinary Association and the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association, and uphold their codes of practice. Dr Edgar is also a member of the Australian Veterinary Practice Management Association. All the Veterinarians at the Wembley Vet Hospital are also members of the Australasian Society of Feline Medicine.
