Kim Gorey always knew she wanted to be the voice for those who don’t have a voice. After falling in love with the fast pace of late-night shifts during her emergency unit studies, she knew emergency medicine was her calling.
For Kim, some of her favourite times in the hospital are when she helps bring a new life into the world when a pet is rushed in for an emergency caesarean. She says there’s no better feeling than being there for a newborn’s first breaths and helping the new mum look after her babies. It’s a love that is shared by all our team at Perth Vet Emergency.
Since Kim has been at Perth Vet Emergency she has seen many amazing cases and patients. But there is one pup in particular who was extremely memorable. This pup had jumped through a window and was losing a tremendous amount of blood. The team found that a number of blood vessels and an artery were severed from the window. After surgery, the Staffy recovered so well you never would’ve known anything had happened! “The next day the little Staffy went home so bright and happy – like nothing happened”, Kim exclaimed.
A little-known fact about Kim Gorey, she is a painter who sells her art online.
