Despite her demands, Dr Liana Tay was only allowed a goldfish when she was growing up. Nevertheless, she has always preferred animals over humans and believes a career helping animals was written in the stars. Liana started her career as a GP vet but was soon looking for a new challenge. She soon found that emergency medicine offered just that challenge as well as a face-paced nature. Since switching from being a family vet to an emergency vet she hasn’t looked back.
As a new graduate, Liana spent time volunteering with livestock and pets overseas in a community with limited resources. She thrived on the sense of community with the other locals and volunteers. Liana was awed by the sense of ingenuity required in such an environment. She never looked back, and still relishes any opportunity to travel and volunteer.
Of working at Perth Vet Emergency, Liana loves working with the team. She loves the genuine care provided by the vets and nurses for every aspect of a patient’s stay. Plus she loves the copious amounts of cheesecake and training that are available!
On her days off you’ll find Dr Liana Tay cuddling up to other people’s dogs at dog beaches. She has also been teaching (unsuccessfully!) her cat how to skateboard.
