Grant Macpherson Grant graduated from Massey University with distinction in 1978.
Grant has gained priceless years of experience working with small and large animals during his many years in practice but he is currently focused on large animal health predominantly Dairy cattle although you may see him in the small animal clinic from time to time.
Grant is also trained in mastitis investigations, ‘In-calf’ trained (reproduction) and ‘Healthy hoof’ trained (lameness) to ensure you get maximum results on your farm.
Luke (Lurch) Goodin Lurch graduated from Massey University in 2005 His name may be Luke but we think he only answers to Lurch as that is all he is called! Lurch has been with us for some time and is married to fellow veterinarian Fiona.
Lurch’s interests lie mainly with large animals predominantly Dairy cattle health, and he partakes in continuing education in this area to ensure our clients are being kept up to date with the latest information and techniques.
Lurch is also a ruminant nutrition advisor & is trained in mastitis investigations. You will also see Lurch working in the small animal clinic occasionally.
Ben Irwin Ben graduated from Massey University in 2004.
Ben has also been with us for some time now and enjoys mixed practice work, and he spends a lot time of continuing his education in both fields to broaden his knowledge.
Ben spends most of his time on farms but covers the small animal clinic with ease when Sandra is away.
Ben is particularly interested in Bovine reproduction and Ophthalmology (eyes).
Sandra Murray Sandra graduated from Edinburgh University in 1994.
Sandra originates from the UK, and we have been lucky enough to have her here at Kamo Vets since 2000.
Sandra is our senior companion animal clinical vet who you will see most of the time when you bring your pets into the clinic. Sandra is our clinical team leader & has a varied surgical and medical experience so your pets are in wonderful hands with her.
Sandra’s interests are internal medicine but she is also involved with the treatment of DOC birds such as kiwi that we see from time to time.
Mari Brown Mari graduated from Massey University in 2014
Mari has an interest in both large and small animals, so she dons a white coat and green overalls comfortably.
Moving from Wellington to Whangarei has been a bit of an adjustment for Mari, having to deal with the heat of the winterless North. We hope her cat Socks is coping with the humidity too.
