Establishing Allambie Vet with his wife Elaine in 1984, Brian’s philosophy is that patient care is paramount in all decision making. This has been the base supporting Allambie’s quality reputation and the pride the entire team feel to be part of it.
It’s all about getting the right people; vets, nurses and admin staff who share the view that patient care comes first.
These days, Brian has stepped back from consulting at the family owned and operated clinic, but still has a hand in surgery and various procedures.
Outside of the vet clinic, you can always catch Brian enjoying time with his family, playing and watching rugby, sailing or walking his Kelpie (aptly name, The Kelpie).

Jane's keen interest is in ultrasonography, medicine and soft tissue surgery.
During her downtime Jane spends quality time with her three sons, Oscar, Harry and Charlie, her two beautiful hand reared cats and her rescue dog. The Vine Family especially enjoy venturing out on camping holidays when time permits.
Knowing she wanted to be a vet from childhood, Linda spent her life working towards that goal. Linda graduated from Sydney University with Honours, working in the UK and Sydney and eventually becoming a vital member of the Allambie Vet team.
Linda's primary interest lies in soft tissue surgery and dentistry, as well as skin reconstructive surgery, wound management, abdominal ultrasound, stifle surgery and perineal surgery.
Linda has also completed her Masters in Veterinary Science (small animal).

Joshua has completed post-graduate studies in stress free surgery, ultrasonography, the management of severe systemic illness in small animal practice and has attended various seminars on topics such as internal medicine, radiology and oncology.
