Jill McFarlane - Business Manager

Hi, I’m Jill McFarlane and I have been in the veterinary industry for 47 years.  I started off vet nursing in Hamilton but now my time is concentrated on management and administration.  I have been with Paul in this practice for 31 years and we are both passionate in making sure we deliver a high standard of service to all our clients.

 A lot has changed over the years, particularly in the animal health care products available now.  My focus is on promoting animal healthcare, particularly through good nutrition.  I believe, as with humans, that our pets “are what they eat”.  I also take pride in the excellent service that all our staff provides to our clients.  I still fill in at reception where needed, and always enjoy my contact with our clients – and of course their pets.

Paul and I love our dogs Nico an Italian Greyhound and Pippa a Griffon cross.  Our children have all left home so these are our replacements. 

I enjoy gardening and have my own fully organic garden in the back yard including 4 chooks that produce the best eggs.  We also have a beehive in our backyard. 

I am a keen photographer and instagrammer so you can follow my animal photos under the username: jinipapi

We also have a big tabby cat called Taddy.

I love the outdoors and whenever possible I am keen to get out tramping.
