Dr Michelle Tolhurst
Michelle was born in Auckland, NZ and after finishing her Bachelor of Arts degree, went backpacking and lived in the UK where she met her husband. After a few years in the UK, Michelle and her husband continued traveling and ended up in Sydney where her veterinary adventure began.
Michelle and her family live on a large hobby farm along with two cheeky dachshunds, two rescue cats, a collection of horses including a brumby, three inquisitive chooks and a small herd of quiet Belted Galloway cattle. She enjoys small animal surgery, particularly on exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, mice and wildlife, as well as small animal dentistry work.
When she’s not in the practice, Michelle is teaching part-time at TAFE in the Animal Care Section. She also enjoys playing touch footy, yoga, pilates, dance and watching her son play hockey.
