Dr Chris Dixon
Chris graduated from The University of Edinburgh in June 1998. He spent his first year working in general practice in England and then caught the travel bug. He spent the next few years travelling the world and locuming in the UK and Australia – finally settling in Australia in late 2002.
He has been the main vet at Oxenford Vet Surgery since 2005 and has owned the practice since 2009.
When not at work, Chris has a busy life at home with his wife (also a vet on the Gold Coast), two children, two small dogs and three Burmese cats. He enjoys watching sport (especially soccer), listening to loud music and has a more recently discovered interest in DIY.
Dr Wittey Lee
Wittey graduated from the University of Queensland and previously worked at an animal hospital in Logan before joining our team in 2017.
When not at work, she enjoys cooking, travelling, board games, swimming, tennis and rock climbing.
Wittey has a keen interest in “pocket pets” and has owned numerous mice and rats. At home, she is also kept busy by her cat Evie and dog Ollie.
Dr Karishma Dahia
Hi I’m Karishma,
I graduated from James Cook University, Townsville in 2013. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine, however I have a particular interest in small animal surgery.
When not practicing at the clinic, I enjoy all things outdoors including running, cycling, hiking and spending time with my own furry friends!
Our Veterinary Nurses
Paula grew up in New Zealand & came to live in Australia as a teenager. She has been nursing for over 16 years. After starting out working in an animal shelter, she came to Oxenford Veterinary Surgery in November 2006. Paula shares a home with her partner Floyd & her rescued furbabies she loves dearly consisting of ‘Smally’ the white fluffy dog, ‘Chloe’ the pamper pooch, ‘Koinky’ the Abyssinian & her 3 Devon Rex cats ‘Prinkle’, ‘Poppety Moppet’ & ‘Ted’.
Rachelle has been a nurse at Oxenford Veterinary Surgery since August 2015 and is currently completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. She has two cats and two dogs. Rachelle likes to spend time with her husband and two daughters, playing video games, or binge watching TV shows. Her favourite thing about working in a vet surgery is meeting all the interesting breeds of dogs and cats that come in, and seeing how different all of their personalities can be.
Emily joined the team here at Oxenford Vet Surgery after starting a study placement in September 2017! Emily is a mum to one little boy called Max, a Tibetan spaniel called Louis and a terribly naughty staffy named Reg! She is always ready to greet our furry clients with a smile and a cuddle and she especially adores big breed dogs…..just like Zeus who she is pictured with!
Originally from Toowoomba, Bec joined our Oxenford Veterinary Surgery team in February 2017. She has been in the animal industry since 2013 but has loved all things animal since she was a young girl. Bec enjoys spending time with her husband, two young daughters and her son exploring the great outdoors. She has a passion for breeding pedigree Ragdolls & Staffy’s along with caring for our native wildlife.
