Dr Lydia Hambrook BVSC (Hons) FANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine)
Lydia graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2002. After gaining experience in mixed, equine and small animal practice she commenced a residency in Small Animal Medicine at the Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre in 2009. Lydia passed her ANZCVS fellowship exams and became a registered specialist in Small Animal Medicine in 2012. Since then, she has worked in a Melbourne-based busy private referral practice. Lydia joined the University in 2016 because she’s just as passionate about inspiring upcoming veterinarians as she is about personally caring for sick animals and their concerned owners. Lydia believes that great communication skills coupled with sound logic and clinical reasoning are essential components of the diagnostic process. Lydia has extensive experience examining for the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientist where she has been the Head of the Small Animal Medicine Chapter Examination Committee since 2015. Lydia thoroughly enjoys all facets of Small Animal Medicine but she is particularly interested in cardiology, endocrinology, hepatobiliary disease, oncology and complex multi-disease management.
