Dr Candice Baker BSc BVMS MANZCVS (ECC)

Dr Candice Baker BSc BVMS MANZCVS (ECC)


I graduated in 2010 from Murdoch University and spent the first three years of my career worked in mixed practice in the wheatbelt. I always thought that I would end up in equine practice for my career, but my background involved dog breeding, so it was a toss of a coin as to which species I would gravitate towards. Not surprisingly, I ended up going with my canine companions as a focus. At the end of 2013 I began working in Emergency at WAVES, in 2017 I completed my membership exams with the Australian and New Zealand College of Vet scientists in Emergency and Critical Care medicine. Emergency medicine has taken a lot of my time, however, in 2018 I decided to take a leap back into general practice at the well respect clinic – The Pet Practice. I am enjoying working with breeders and beautiful families of their beloved pets alike. I get to practice my knowledge in emergency and neonatal care and my newer found interests in radiology. I am hoping to complete my membership exams in small animal radiology in 2020.

In my spare time I enjoy camping and travelling with my husband and son and in the other spare time I devote energy towards ensuring the health and welfare of German Shepherd Dogs in Australia are attended to. Sometimes, I even like to go to a dog show!
