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.

Jennifer Tran

I am a qualified junior level nurse with a certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. My previous work experience was within an Emergency Veterinary Clinic, where it was difficult to build a long lasting relationship with my patient’s and their owners. I am very excited to now be a part of such a tight knit community. I look forward to building lasting realtionships with my patient’s and their owners, and ensuring that their visits to the vet are a fun and exciting experience.

My affinity towards animals started at a young age and have resulted in a childhood with many animal companions. Despite my parent’s resistance; grew up with two Maltese terriers, two mice, two chickens, many fish and too many experiences of me dragging in lizards and worms from my backyard.

My partner and I now own a rescue dog of our own, Tilly a Rottweiler x Kelpie. She’s a big girl with a big heart and loves long walks, big adventures, making friends and being the center of attention.

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.
