Our Veterinarians

Pimpama City Vet - Dr Kate Heathwood

Dr Kate Heathwood

Senior Veterinarian BVSc

Kate graduated from the University of Queensland in 2013.  She started her career working in our Canungra clinic as a mixed practice vet and after 4 and a half years, she left us for a brief stint to work at the University Teaching Clinic in Dayboro, QLD (her home town).

In early 2021 she returned to our practice to become the lead veterinarian at our Pimpama City clinic where she now enjoys working as a small animal clinician. 

In her free time Kate enjoys camping, target shooting and spending time with her partner Justin and their menagerie of animals – 2 dogs, a cat, 2 birds and 3 fish!
