Introducing Dr Sinead Phillips

Sinead has been working with us at the clinic since January this year. Sinead's main interests are production animal medicine, with a focus on cattle, as well as the management of chronic disease in older dogs and cats. Outside of work, Sinead enjoys the outdoors, hiking, exploring Tasmania and spending time with her three cats. 

Sinead was recently awarded the Don Kerr Student Award at the 2018 Australian Veterinary Association Conference. Sinead was awarded this honour for her dedication to and excellence in cattle medicine, as well as her work on a research project which examined the importance of pre-mating bull soundness examinations on cattle fertility. Her work demonstrated that almost half of bulls in Tasmania are suboptimal or not suitable for use in breeding programs.
