Animal Happiness Vet

Meet our team


Dr Gary Beilby

Hi there! I’m the original Animal Happiness Vet. I’ve been treating Perth pets since 1990, have additional qualifications in native/exotic species management and a deep, passionate interest in behaviour medicine as it affects the happiness of the animals in our lives. So many animals cope very poorly with a visit to the vet, and it has been my mission for many years now to help with that problem!

I was born and raised in Perth, and I have travelled extensively throughout Australia from a young age. I have a deep love of the West Australian bush – from the deserts to the tall forests – and I draw enormous nourishment from camping out under the stars or sitting quietly waiting for wildlife to pass in front of my camera lens. I graduated from Murdoch University in 1987, and again in 1989 and then went back for another helping (Conservation Masters) in 2008. I believe none of us are ever too old to learn – especially our pets!

At the end of the day, nothing motivates me more, or makes me happier than helping my clients with their animal family :-)
