Dr. Chantal Celindano

BVSc (hons) MANZCVS (feline medicine)

Chantal is your run of the mill crazy cat lady. She graduated in 2004 from the University of Queensland and started work at the Cat Clinic in Brisbane- where she ended up with a rehoming reject, her now 17 year old silver tabby Nifty-Sprocket. Chantal has worked in the UK, where she also was drawn to a cat clinic, unsurprisingly, and currently works in Brisbane in general practice, with yearly stints at the Cat Clinic in Melbourne. Chantal has her membership in feline medicine, and when she is not sleuthing for the perfect kitty accessory, she can be found dragging her husband and daughter to cat conferences at every opportunity.


Dr. Jill Beasley​


Jill graduated from James Cook University in 2010 and had the pleasure of being taught by Phil himself!

She spent 2 years in mixed practice in Charters Towers, largely avoiding horse calls and keeping her head above water through the generous help and support of many lovely vets around her. After this she spent a year in the English countryside, then returned to North Queensland where she has been ever since.

She is a general practitioner but has also spent time doing emergency and shelter work. She now works part time in general practice and part time as a tutor for Veterinary Science students during their surgery and anaesthesia rotations.

What Jill loves most about vetting is seeing animals and clients having positive outcomes at the vet, be it through low stress handling of the patients in our care, or clients really understanding what is going on with their pet and trusting us to do the very best by their pets. She thinks continuing to learn and prioritising client communication are keys to success in general practice.
