Kylie is the proud owner of Bedford-Dianella Vet Centre. With more than 20 years’ experience as a practising vet, she acquired the centre in 2004, having graduating from Murdoch University in 1994.
Kylie long harboured a dream to create a vet centre that provides an extensive range of veterinary services with qualified, caring staff who truly care about pets and their owners.
That dream is now her reality. Kylie’s encouragement of her team to foster a friendly rapport with pet owners and their pets, and to pursue their passion for veterinary care has paid dividends for the centre’s clients and pets.
When not at the centre, Kylie is busy looking after her family – human, four-legged and feathered – and likes being active on her family farm and enjoying classical music.
Louise graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2004 and moved to Perth in 2009, after working in a small animal practice in the UK.
She’s an experienced vet with a passion for caring for pets to the highest possible standards.
Her special interests include medicine – diagnosing and treating diseases of the internal organs – especially disorders of the hormonal systems, and feline medicine.
Louise is always furthering her knowledge and in July 2016 gained admittance as a Member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons in Feline Medicine. Louise still loves seeing all of her patients but is very keen to use her skills to help more cats feel their best!
In her spare time she enjoys cooking, outdoor activities, relaxing with her husband and looking after her cat, Buddy.
Originally from Japan, Sally came to Australia as a child and graduated from Sydney University in 2004. She began her career in mixed practice but after a couple of years decided to focus her interests on all areas of small animal medicine and soft tissue surgery.
Sally has studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and in an internationally accredited Animal Acupuncturist.
Sally is with us in a part-time capacity, working 2-3 days each week and whenever the other vets are studying or taking holidays.
In her free time, Sally enjoys travel to experience all different cultures, keeping fit (she is also a personal trainer so she motivates us all to be active!) and spending time outdoors with her husband and their two four-legged boys, Nitrous and Rokit (both whippets).
Gemma graduated from Murdoch University in the year 2000. She has worked in a large variety of small animal practices in Australia and the United Kingdom and is delighted to be back working with the fabulous team at Bedford Dianella Vet Centre.
Gemma much enjoys the day to day variety of small animal general practice and gains special satisfaction from working with and improving the quality of life of her patients in their “senior” years.
Gemma works 2 or 3 days each week at the Centre, and spends her time away from vetting looking after her family, gardening and trying to find time to practise the piano!
Laura qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2005, and spent the first 9 years of her career working in small animal practice in the UK. She moved to Perth in 2014 and is enjoying the diversity and quirks of pets and their owners here in the world’s sunniest city!
Laura is interested in investigating and managing the medical issues of geriatric pets and communicating with pet owners about their expectations and how to best improve their pet’s quality of life. This can vary widely depending on an animal’s lifestyle and an owner’s beliefs. Honest discussion and clarity regarding available options for each individual can be key in providing an outcome that everyone is happy with.
She is currently working towards a RCVS certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice with her special interest modules being undertaken in dermatology and internal medicine.
When not at the Centre, Laura can be found looking after her two young children, practising yoga and running. Having a long history of adopting elderly, stray and unwell cats, she is currently without a furry companion, and is waiting for her youngest child to get a little bit older before acquiring any new pets.
Tayla has been a Qualified Veterinary Nurse since 2010 and has been working with us since 2014. She joined us shortly after doing a two-year working holiday in London.
She has always been extremely passionate about animals and their welfare. She has worked in cats protection clinics throughout London and feels strongly about responsible pet ownership. She loves working at Bedford Dianella Vet Centre because she has been able to make great relationships with our lovely clients and enjoys chatting and giving advice.
She has a gorgeous pussy cat named Pandy. It was love at first sight when she saw her at the clinic after being abandoned and adopted her when she was 4 months old. She is a black and white tuxedo domestic short hair and is very spoilt! Tayla is absolutely obsessed with her and not ashamed to admit it!
In her spare time she enjoys going to the beach, catching up with friends, travelling and watching TV with her cat on her lap!
Hannah began her veterinary nursing career at Bedford-DianellaVet Centre in 2014 as a trainee and qualified in 2015. Hannah loves all aspects of veterinary nursing however her passion for rabbits saw her take a six month break during which she worked with unusual pets and mostly rabbits.
Fortunately for us, Hannah missed cats and dogs too much and has returned and is enjoying renewing her friendships with our client and their pets.
Hannah enjoys keeping fit, cooking healthy food and hanging out with her boyfriend and their two cute rabbits – Delilah and Reuben, adoring cat – Emmet and happy dog – Finn!
After 10 years in the hospitality industry Karina decided it was time to follow her passions for caring and animals. In 2008 she started a traineeship at Busselton Vet Hospital and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2010.
During that time she helped set up S.A.F.E Busselton (Saving Animals From Euthanasia), where she was able to satisfy her love for re-homing animals.

Karina has a flat coat retriever mix, miniature pincher and 3 chooks. She lives in the Swan Valley with her husband and two children.
Kelsey has been working as a veterinary nurse since February 2012 and qualified in 2014.

Many of our patients benefit from her skills following major surgeries and muscular injuries and when they suffer with arthritis. Kelsey says, “We do it for people so why not for our dogs?”
