Dr Erin Kefford BVSc (hons) – Veterinarian
Dr Erin Kefford graduated from the University of Sydney in 2007. After graduating, Dr Erin worked at a variety of veterinary clinics in the area, where she gained a massive amount of experience in not only general practice, but also emergency work and held some key leadership roles.
Dr Erin always dreamed of opening her own clinic so when the opportunity became available to take over management of Riverstone Veterinary Hospital she jumped at it!!!! Not only can she now fulfill her dream of ensuring that all fur-babies in the local vicinity are cared for at the highest of standards, but she can also ensure that clients are given the time they deserve. Her bubbly personality, and exceptional ability to teach and explain, is a favourite among her clients.
Dr Erin and Dr Prue have been working together for over ten years and you will see they make a formidable team, showing kindness and compassion to all that enter their clinic.
Dr Prue Hunt BVSc – Veterinarian
Prue always wanted to be a vet and was excited to qualify from the University of Sydney in 2009. Prue is recognized for her gentle, kind nature and willingness to always giving her patients the highest level of attention and care. She has a great love for all animals and all species and this shines through in her work. Prue is married with two young children, and has two rescue dogs that fit out the rest of the family.
Dr Jade Contreras (Bachelor Veterinary Biology/Bachelor of Veterinary Science)
Originally planning to be a large animal veterinarian, Jade graduated from Charles Sturt University Wagga Wagga in mid 2016. Her first job as a mixed vet made her realise how much she loved working with small animals and hasn’t looked back since making the change. While she loves all animals big and small, her areas of interest include feline medicine and geriatric health and well-being.
She has 3 beautiful elderly rag doll cats that are constantly up to mischief despite their years and a 14 month old son that keeps her on her toes!
Your fur babies will have the chance to meet her on Saturdays with a big smile and caring nature.
Melissa Radnidge – Veterinary Nurse
Mel has been an animal lover her whole life. She has worked in the veterinary industry since 2012, and received her Certificate 4 in veterinary nursing in 2015. Mel joined the team at Riverstone Vet Hospital so she could continue in her passion to help sick animals get better, and make a difference to their lives. She enjoys furthering her knowledge to provide her patients with the highest level of care, and has proven herself an invaluable asset to the team.
Alexis Sabaddin – Veterinary Nurse
Alexis' drive, passion and care for animals derived from a very young age. Alexis followed her ambitions and has since been in the Veterinary Industry for the past three years successfully completing her Certificate IV in Nursing. Noting everything comes from waking up with the right attitude; the love and laughter she is so well known for, she gives to the pets in her care and to each and every client. Definitely an asset to the team here at Riverstone Veterinary Hospital.
