Our Team

It goes without saying that we love animals, but we really do take pride in giving the best possible care and attention to you and your pet!


Meet our friendly and professional team:


Dr Pat Chan - Veterinary Director

BVSc (Merit) 

Hi my name is Pat. I have worked in small animal practice ever since I graduated. I have been at Dr Paws Lane Cove for 1.5 years. My role here is to ensure we deliver outstanding customer service and veterinary care to all our clients at their fur babies.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice, however, I have an interest in dentistry, which I am doing further study in and preventative medicine as well as geriatric medicine. I enjoy forming relationships with clients and their pets and helping their pets be the best they can be. 

I have two cats myself, Tigger the 10 year old naughty tortie, and Oscar a 4 year old Ragdoll, who both hate each other, but tolerate one another. When I am not at work, you will find me chilling with my two cats and my wife - of course, eating out at yummy places (I am a foodie), going to the movies, snorkeling and snowboarding.


Dr Edwina Palmer -Veterinarian

BApplSc BVSc MANZCVS (equine Surgery)

I have been a practicing Veterinarian for 5 years working with both equine and small animals, and am really enjoying getting to know you and your pets here at Dr Paws. 

I  have a special interest in ultrasound and surgery, particularly orthopedics, I am also commencing animal acupuncture study this year which is exciting!

I have an 11 year old pug Waffle and a beautiful Burmese boy named Wilson who is 9 years old . Outside of work I enjoy pilates and keeping fit!


Holly - Veterinary Nurse

I joined Dr Paws Lane Cove in September 2019, after settling in Bondi. I am from the UK and qualified in 2017 after working 5 years in a small but very busy London clinic.

I typically enjoy all aspects of nursing, especially anaestheisa and medical nursing. I have a flat coated retriever named Lottie who is 9 years old, and a black fluffy cat named Oscar, 10 years old, who I miss lots!

I look forward to meeting your fur babies!
