Dr Amanda Rhodes-Andrew has been with the Latrobe Veterinary Group since 1990, and as Senior Veterinarian, with extensive surgical experience and expertise, is pivotal to much that occurs behind the scenes.
Dr Amanda has extensive experience in small animal medicine and surgery, the latter being her main interest. She achieved Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Surgeons — Surgery Chapter, by passing a gruelling set of exams in June & July 2006 and also spent a day each week working with a specialist surgeon in Melbourne for much of 2005 & 2006. Dr Amanda performs much of the complicated surgery within the practice, has very well developed clinical pathology skills, takes an important role in training junior staff, as well as performing the odd “handyperson” job around the clinic. Before we ceased large animal work she enjoyed alpacas and was our cow caesarian queen! A very capable lady indeed.
Away from work, Amanda excels as home handyperson, building donkey sheds, chook pens, carports, miles of fences and having a major role in renovating her house. She also spends much time on her bicycles and in the gym, training for the next adventure.
