Dr Caroline Mansfield
Associate Professor, BSc BVMS PhD MANZCVS DECVIM

Director of U-Vet Werribee Animal Hospital, Registered Small Animal Medicine Specialist


Caroline grew up in Perth, and graduated as a veterinarian from Murdoch University. She then worked in mixed animal practice before travelling to the UK to work as a locum in small animal practice. Whilst there, she got bitten by a love for small animal medicine, and was lucky enough to complete a residency training program at University College, Dublin in that discipline. She gained her specialist qualifications (Diplomate, European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine) in 2001, and returned to Murdoch University to work as an academic teacher and clinician. She continued her interest in gastroenterology both in clinics and in research, obtaining her PhD in the field of canine pancreatitis.

The move to Melbourne occurred in 2010, and she has been Head of Small Animal Medicine at the University of Melbourne since then, until her recent appointment as Director of U-Vet Hospital. Her clinical research interest in gastroenterology has continued. Caroline is also involved in the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists, and is Past President of the ANZCVSc Council.

She lives with one dog and one cat (both rescues), one husband and three children (not rescued!). Despite the move to Melbourne, she is still a loyal West Coast Eagles fan.
