Brudine Veterinary Hospital first opened in 1976 by Bruce & Geraldine Fuller, hence creating the name: Brudine. They kept the hospital in operation at the original facilities on the corner of Kingsford Smith & Alfred Hill Drive for nearly 30 years. in 2003, Dr Deb Williams moved across Canberra to become the principle vet, and occupied the house above the clinic with her 3 young children. In 2005, Dr Deb purchased the business from Bruce and officially made it her own.
Dr Deb had a strong ethos that she continues to believe in: personal, friendly care. Her clients are more than pet owners, they are her friends.
From 2005, Deb worked at building a rapport with the community and had Dr Karen Viggers as her vet on Friday's to give her that day off. After many years of hard work, Dr Fiona Starr was in the market for a job near her new home in Melba, after moving to Canberra for love. In an act of fate, Deb was looking for a new vet to help manage the high number of clients her reputation had awarded her. Dr Fiona joined us here at Brudine Vet in 2013 and assisted in managing the huge workload as the business continued to grow. In May 2014, Brudine Vet relocated from the small, home business in Melba to a purpose-built clinic in Charnwood. Since then we have developed from a 3 vet practice, to a 9 vet practice. Through all these changes, we now have the ability to offer our clients much more in the way of surgery, imaging, diagnostics and of course, general veterinary care while still striving to keep the personal attention for each and every client.
Our move to Charnwood has been a great decision for our staff and our clients, both long-term and the ones still to come.
We endeavour to give you and your pets a personal approach to veterinary care at every turn, because we know that your pet is much more than just a pet, they're a part of the family.
And we can't wait to meet your family!
