Dr Lacy GilMurray – Veterinarian D.V.M. Veterinary Director

I grew up on the East Coast of the United States, where I have worked in veterinary hospitals since the age of 14. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland in the Honors College and then completed my doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of Florida.

I have a special interest exotic animal medicine, husbandry, and surgery and have presented multiple case reports on bearded dragon and guinea pig medicine at the international exotic animal conference ExoticsCon, as well as an active member of the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians and the Association of Avian Veterinarians. My other professional interests include dermatology, internal medicine, animal behavior, soft tissue surgery and ultrasonography.

My husband previously lived in Sydney, and convinced to me to move to Oz to raise our son in the sunny Newcastle beaches and wonderful community. At home I enjoy walks with my mastiff cross Luke, sharing my lap with my ginger cat Chewbacca, as well as traveling, scuba diving, camping, and yoga. I also enjoy skiing, baking, curling up with a good book, and I am an avid Star Wars fan.
