They have been part of the community here in Glenelg for over 20 years and are still loving every minute of it. Doctors Will Cusworth, Christina Snow and Eleanor Owen are all permanent members of the Glenelg Vet team.

Just as important are all our wonderful nurses who complete the team: Katelyn, Erica, Charlotte, Shayne, Munroe, Amie, Steph, Mel and Vanessa. They are fabulous nurses who are dedicated to providing the best experience possible for you and your beloved pet.

From Sydney, Angus moved to the picturesque Clare Valley where he thrived on treating the large animals as much as the town pets. From Clare, Angus and his wife Anita travelled through the UK and Europe gaining further experience as a locum vet before coming home to settle in Adelaide.

In 2011, Angus completed post graduate studies in sonology (ultrasound) which he now thoroughly enjoys as well as general and orthopaedic surgery. Angus also has a keen interest in caring for our older geriatric pets, palliative care and oncology.

Angus and Anita now have three children who are growing up a little too fast, Ella, Scarlett and Tommy. Besides being immersed in family life, Angus likes to get away for as many mountain bike trips as possible, recently travelling through Tasmania. He regularly rides all of Adelaide’s great mountain bike trails.

Dr Eleanor


Chloe became a qualified Vet Nurse in 2016 and had been nursing in a busy small animal clinic in Adelaide before joining our team in 2019.

Born in Thailand and raised in South Australia, Amie knew she had an extra heart for nurturing animals. Amie’s love for animals led her down the path of wanting to broaden her knowledge beyond just their friendly faces so she completed her Certificate III in Rural Operations in 2019. She experienced working with a range of livestock and small animals, learning about their behaviors, proper care and their biochemistry. In 2022, she began studying Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. After her first year she undertook her placement with us and was officially asked to join the Glenelg Team at the beginning of 2023.

Throughout her life Amie has always found animals to be some of the best life companions. She enjoys being a vet nurse because she is able to use her love of animals to help owners and their pets live their most fulfilling and healthy lives. In her spare time, you’ll find Amie out bush camping, on a hike or out for brunch with friends. At home she is often accompanied by her beloved companion, the sweetest cat you’d ever meet, Barney.



Mel has always been an animal lover. From an early age she had all manner of pets, mice (who would be taken to school in her blazer pocket), guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, dogs, horses, sheep, galahs, chickens, ducks (who’s ducklings would have a bath with her). Mel would also rescue all wildlife that her parents allowed her to care for such as fruit bats, red kangaroo joeys and ring-tailed possums.

Mel has ensured her two girls, Chloe and Bridget, now 16 and 20, grew up surrounded by a menagerie of animals making a happy home. Her girls thought she was a bit crazy when she once found a lifeless, frozen baby possum and put it in an open oven wrapped in a tea towel, only to witness its twitching to life once warm. Olaf, the possum was nurtured for weeks, and bottle fed till joining his friends at Minton Farm.

Mel has two hungarian vizslas, Barney and
Ollie, and a burmese cat, Ava. Mel was previously a  human registered nurse with 17 years experience, 13 of those being within the critical care sector, ICU and emergency. Mel now loves being a vet nurse and
brings to the clinic a wealth of knowledge from her previous roles that she hopes to build on and
become an integral member of the GVC team. Outside of work, Mel loves hiking with her walking buddies and two dogs, gardening, cooking, yoga, pilates and catching up with friends.
