Donald Murray

Donald Murray is one of our mixed animal Veterinarians. He completed a BV.Sc and M.Sc (Hons) in parasitology from Otago University prior to completing his Vet Science Degree from Queensland University.

He has continued his interest in parasitology, keeping up to date with current parasitic information. Dermatology and cruciate ligament repairs also interest him.

When the weather is on his side, you will find him outdoors hunting or on his boat catching a feed of blue cod. His pride and joy - the marine fish tank, is a focal point of the reception and waiting room area.

Sally Willox

Sally began working at Murrays in late 2013 and is a massive asset to the team. She is an extremely hard worker and will go the extra mile to research and care for all her patients. She qualified in England in 1993 and has worked with small and large animals.

As with Donald, she has a keen interest in dermatological cases and quite often you can find them at the microscope discussing a skin scraping either has done.

She is enjoying life on the Taieri with her husband and daughter. Having a large garden is keeping her busy!

The oral health of patients is important to her, also their wellbeing and welfare while at the clinic.

She is always enthusiastic to help both clients and their pets and goes the extra mile caring for any patient in need. You will always receive a cheery greeting and treats for your pooch when Sarah is around reception.

Sarah teaches Puppy Preschool at the clinic. This area suits her to a T as she is a real "mother" figure, our clinic orphan lambs especially love this side of her!
