Dr Narelle Cribb BVSc (Hons) MVS
I am a graduate of the University of Melbourne, and spent the first years after graduation working in scenic South Gippsland. Time here was spent working with mostly cattle and companion animals, and helped to foster my love for working outdoors, and with all types of animals.
After my time in Gippsland, I spent a number of years working in the outer South Eastern Suburbs. This exposed me to a wider caseload, and I was able to build expertise with a large number of species including horses, cattle, sheep, goats, alpacas and the normal cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs. I was also involved in treating, and developed an appreciation for ferrets and reptiles – including non venomous snakes.
I enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice, from consultations to providing medical care, and performing surgery, including advanced soft tissue surgery and orthopaedics. I have completed a Master’s Degree in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery, and also courses in Equine medicine and Veterinary Opthalmology (the study of eyes) I have experience in breeding management of sheep, cattle, dogs and horses with both natural service and AI. I have also worked with racing and breeding greyhounds, and was one of the track veterinarians at Sandown Park Greyhound Racing Club for a number of years. I have a special interest in endurance horses.
I am the honorary veterinarian for the Victorian Endurance Riders Association, and the current Team Veterinarian for the Australian Endurance Team. I have officiated at many endurance events both in Australia and overseas.
Outside work, I am a keen horse rider and enjoy training and competing on my own Anglo Arabian Gelding, Issy Miaki. My mad Hungarian Viszla, Linka, also keeps her busy!
