Dr Rich Seymour - Veterinary director and founder of The Vet Collective
Rich knew he wanted to be a vet at the age of 12. This passion is continually inspired by the bond he shares with his own pets. He aims to improve quality of life for all his patients and to make visits to the veterinary clinic relaxed and enjoyable. Dr Rich has also developed a particular interest in veterinary behaviour and is a member of the Behaviour Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science. He is also a "fear-free" certified veterinary practitioner.
Rich studied veterinary science at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, moving to the Gold Coast in 2007 . In 2015 he decided it was time to branch out and create a clinic with a difference; The Vet Collective was born.
In his spare time Dr Rich likes to keep active running and riding his bike.
Dr Dana Seymour - Veterinary director
Dr Dana became a vet after first studying a degree in audiology and speech pathology. Her veterinary employment began in a small practice in Ipswich followed by a year long surgical internship with Dr Bruce Smith. Dr Dana then worked in general practice on the Gold Coast for 4 years.
She is a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Science in Emergency & Critical Care and when she isn't at The Vet Collective you can find her at the Animal Emergency Service. Dr Dana loves all aspects of veterinary medicine and is incredibly passionate about maintaining the highest possible standards of care.
In her spare time Dr Dana likes to go horse riding and regularly competes with her horse Captain at equestrian events.
