Leanne Julian, BVSc

Leanne grew up on a Northland sheep and beef farm so joining Mill Road was almost "coming home". After graduating from Massey University in 1994 she also started out as a mixed (large and small animal) vet. She then spent 8 years in the UK, working in a busy small animal practice in Cheshire, where she developed a special interest in surgery, and undertook a 2 year surgery study course.


Leanne arrived back in NZ and joined us in 2008. She is a very talented surgeon and has become the go-to person for our tricky operations. She is also a very popular consulting vet, with her down to earth manner.


Leanne lives in Glenbervie with her 2 beautiful young daughters, 2 Staffies, 2 cats, 2 horses & a herd of guinea pigs. When she's not hard at work "vetting", Leanne can be found wearing her gumboots, down on the farm; a 34 acre sheep & beef block that keeps her busy!
