Our Vet Nurses


Emily Clark

We welcomed Emily as a vet nurse trainee in 2012. Her enthusiastic outlook to her studies and duties sees her kicking off a great start to her vet nursing studies. A country girl to the bone, Emily’s rural background has given her the great experience of being around lots of animals. Her home is truly a pet’s paradise where five dogs, a cat, horse and even some fish capture her affections. With a dedicated approach, Emily has been a great addition to the clinic. Away from work, she enjoys working with her Dad on their 3000 acre cropping and livestock property and helping out with activities at her church where she has volunteered as a youth leader.



Lauren Ney

Lauren joined the clinic as a Tafe student in 2012 studying her Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing, where she then went on to become full time in 2013. Lauren has a great love for all animals, but particularly has a special spot for dogs and rats. Lauren currently has two Labradors, and a rat named Maisy. Outside of work, Lauren enjoys spending time with her loved ones and enjoys activities such as fishing, boxing and kicking back watching the footy. Lauren says she thoroughly enjoys working with the team at DMVS and feels great joy and for fullness when nursing sick animals back to health.



Bethany McKern

Bethany started with us in April 2018 when she made the move from Orange. Bethany completed her Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing in 2017 and says she loves caring for all species of animals. She enjoys spending time with her Border Collie dog Tully, cat Barney and her fiance Nathan. She spends her free time with friends and family on the farm. Bethany grew up on a farm before moving to Dubbo and always spent a lot of time helping her dad on the farm with all the animals and loved it. Bethany said she loves working at DMVS with such a friendly group of people.
