Animal Emergency Service Carrara Veterinarian Dr Oriana Leong with a cat

Dr Oriana Leong

Veterinary Resident

Dr Oriana has always loved animals and from a young age aspired to become a veterinarian. Now with her dream realised, she says it’s everything she imagined. “I feel absolute joy when I am able to make a difference in their treatment and get a pet home to their loved ones.”

How did Dr Oriana end up in emergency medicine? During the early years of her veterinary study, Dr Oriana discovered her fascination and passion for emergency and critical care. As a new graduate, Dr Oriana began working in an emergency practice and hasn’t looked back since, and has since gained her memberships in Emergency and Critical Care.

Outside of work, Dr Oriana is a cat mum to grumpy-man Popcorn (pictured with Dr Oriana) and sweet Pancake, spending quality cuddle time with them. Dr Oriana is also a self-declared foodie and enjoys exploring all kinds of cuisines.
