Dr Amelia Allen is an emergency veterinarian in at our Underwood practice in Brisbane’s south-east. Amelia is driven by her passion for helping sick animals to get better and finds her fascination in the science behind vet medicine to be a key driver in her dedication to her career. Her pathway to emergency medicine was a result of her thirst to learn more.
Amelia has some memorable stories from the emergency room. Her most unusual case to come through was a cat whose misadventure involved swallowing a $2 coin. Amelia loves her job and is often amazed at an animal’s ability to recover. She recalls one patient that was close to death – suffering from severe shock and electrolyte abnormalities. Within a few hours under the care of AES staff, the patient was up and about and walking – for Amelia it was an incredible recovery to witness.
