GREG SEZUN - DIRECTOR/SENIOR VET

Greg's veterinary degree was completed at Melbourne University.  Following his graduation he worked in several places in Victoria, Tasmania and Mount Gambier. 

Greg moved to the Adelaide Hills in 1993, then in 1994 moved to Victor Harbor. He commenced work in Port Lincoln for Dr John Granger at Lincoln Vet Centre in 1997.  Greg then set up a mobile horse practice on the Fleurieu Peninsula in 2000 until 2012, when he and Annie Forrest started Vets On Eyre. Greg still has connections with Victor Harbor and does some work there, spending half the week in Port Lincoln and the other half with his wife Christine in Victor Harbor.  

Along the way Greg has acquired formal post graduate qualifications in Veterinary acupuncture & has passed the membership examination of the Australian and New Zealand course of Veterinary Scientist in Horse Dentistry.

Outside of work Greg enjoys playing the guitar, swimming, surfing, reading, yoga and keeping fit. 

ANNIE FORREST: SENIOR ASSOCIATE VET

Annie graduated from Murdoch University in Perth with a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery (with First Class Honours) in 1985. Prior to this she obtained an Associate Diploma in Agriculture (Horse Husbandry and Management) from Roseworthy Agricultural College, where the vet school is situated today.

Annie commenced her veterinary career in a mixed country practice at Katanning, in southern WA. She then headed overseas and combined travelling with veterinary locum work in England and Scotland for a year.

On returning to Australia, Annie’s love of mixed practice led her to work at Port Pirie for two years. After marrying an EP farmer and moving to the family farm at Wharminda in 1989, their three children were born. During this busy family time Annie ran a part time veterinary practice from home on the farm and in the surrounding areas, treating everything from birds to bulls and sometimes with children in tow!

In 2004 the family moved to Port Lincoln for the children’s secondary education. Annie worked for Lincoln Veterinary Centre, and then Mooney Veterinary Services, before setting up Vets On Eyre in 2012 with Greg Sezun. After relinquishing ownership in 2016 Annie enjoys continuing to work there, and values the ongoing relationships with clients and their animals.

Annie enjoys the variety and challenges of mixed rural practice, and has a special interest in wildlife and exotic pets - the smaller furred, feathered and scaled critters! She also appreciates the people she has come to know through her work as a vet on Eyre Peninsula and after 27 years is “almost a local”!

Outside work Annie enjoys spending time with family and friends, walking, yoga, travelling, reading and photography. Current pets include a dog, a cat, some sheep, a rabbit and a python.

Tommy: Former Workplace Supervisor - R.I.P. Jan 2017

Tommy had been with us since 2012, he turned up at the clinic with a mangled back leg which had to be amputated. Being a stray we kept him as he’d won our hearts. Not afraid of the biggest of dogs (or any other animals for that matter), he welcomed them all and kept a very close eye on all of us – especially in the kitchen!! - R.I.P Tommy :-(  Unfortunately our favourite workplace supervisor had to be put to sleep in January 2017 due to a serious medical condition. We will miss him always xxx

TABITHA: WORKPLACE SUPERVISOR
 Tabitha is also a stray that ‘adopted us’ when she was found and brought in with a sore leg. She is the smoochiest cat and wants cuddles from anyone and everyone who walks in the door. If you get out of your chair she thinks you’ve warmed it up for her! 


LENNY THE LIZARD: JUNIOR WORKPLACE SUPERVISOR

Lenny, our bearded dragon, came into the clinic from Pet Stock with an injured foot, he'd had a disagreement with another lizard.  We decided to keep him :-)   He loves to keep an eye on all the comings and goings in the clinic and is also a constant source of entertainment for cats Dennis and Tabitha.

DENNIS THE MENACE: JUNIOR WORKPLACE SUPERVISOR

Dennis came into our lives at 6 weeks old via Making A Difference Cat Rescue.  We couldn't decide on a name so we decided to do a 'Name Our Clinic Cat' competition. One of our lovely customers chose Dennis the Menace - perfect!!!  He is such a cheeky cat and thinks he owns the clinic.  All animals and clients are greeted - large and small by our little menace.  Every morning he and Tabitha have a play fight, it's very entertaining :-)
