Dr Marianne Gould

Marianne graduated from the University of Sydney in 1992 and practiced in a number of rural and urban practices before joining the Collaroy Veterinary Services team in 2009.

In addition to her veterinary science and business degrees Marianne has studied with and is certified by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society as a veterinary acupuncturist. She gains great satisfaction in seeing the results that this complementary therapy in addition to conventional medicine can provide for many pets. In addition to acupuncture, Marianne's main areas of interest in veterinary practice are pain management, animal behaviour and feline medicine.

Marianne names her favourite thing about working at Collaroy is the opportunity to work as a team with dedicated pet owners to improve the health and well-being of their pets.

Outside of work Marianne lists her interests as her dogs; 17 year old Poppy, a very smart Kelpie cross and 10 year old Hugo, a not-so-smart Staffy cross, running, yoga, reading, horse-riding and helping care for one very naughty Bengal cat called Zeus!
