Dr Jay Dulichan
My exposure to animals started as a child caring for the neighbourhood pets that needed medical attention. I graduated from the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 1988 and established two Veterinary Hospitals in the suburbs of Johannesburg. In 2001, I immigrated to Australia and was employed by two veterinary hospital groups in the Sydney region. In 2012 I established Vet Central Animal Hospital in Earlwood.
With 26 years of experience, I bring a vast amount of experience and knowledge in various fields of veterinary medicine and surgery. My special interest is in all aspects of surgery especially orthopaedics and this has extended into ophthalmic and abdominal surgery.
My medical interest are geriatrics including endocrine diseases, arthritis and pain management.My clients especially know me for my positive experience enrichment consults and advising clients from puppy school to grief management is all important to me as a veterinarian.My family of five have a pet called Jadoo a Shih Tzu cross Maltese.
Sammy Jo Kosovich
I am Sammy, a qualified junior level nurse attending to reception and nursing duties with a certificate IV in Vet Nursing. I would likely to be the first person you will meet at Vet Central Animal hospital all bubbly and happy.
I had the benefit of being raised with animals from a young age, dogs, chicken, cats, goat’s emu etc. I was always taught by my parents to care for all animals, big and small, tall and short. I also love the bush and as a family our holidays are often spent camping, fishing and enjoying wildlife.
My nursing career commenced after schooling when I joined TAFE and studied veterinary nursing full time. My passion for animals pushes me to do my best in my position as a vet nurse.
I have two dogs Nala, a Bull Arab x Mastiff x Ridgeback and Gypsy, a German shepherd. With my 2 pets and my 4 WD vehicle we are all for the outdoors.
My name is Becky and I am a Junior Vet Nurse at Vet Central, having joined the team in early 2020. My role includes nursing patients in the ward, reception duties, assisting with sample collection and pathology, and monitoring anaesthetics during surgery – I enjoy the variety as it means no day is the same.
I have a Certificate II in Animal Studies and am due to complete my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing later this year. I am also currently studying a Bachelor of Science at university, majoring in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience and Animal Health, Disease and Welfare, and am working towards the postgraduate Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
I have a particular interest in Australian wildlife and am a licensed wildlife carer, however I love all animals and have two pets of my own – a Domestic Short Hair named Socks and a Cocker Spaniel named Ari. I’m passionate about providing excellent patient care and look forward to meeting and looking after your precious pets!
My name is Mariam, I am an animal attendant and receptionist here at Vet Central Animal Hospital.
I’ve always had a passion for animals; even at the tender age of 6. My childhood dream job was to look after dolphins.
I am very passionate about animal health and well-being. I enjoy taking care of all animals; big and small! I’m definitely a dog person but I’m also obsessed with lions (so i guess I’m a dog and cat person).
I enjoy learning new things; I recently finished a writing course as well as a photography elective.
I’m currently looking into studying a Certificate in Animal Care.
I have two beautiful dogs; both Border Collies – A boy and girl named Jack and Skye.
Fun fact – my family and I own a farm with (much to my dismay) no animals on it…yet!

I am an Earlwood local and have grown up taking care of a multitude of animals; cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, chickens and more. I currently have a 5-year-old purebred Ragdoll named Thunder, and a family of Spiny Stick Insects. I hope to work with and care for many more animals in the future.
