Dr Kylie Kelers
BSc, BVMS, MVS, FANZCVS (ECC)

Senior Lecturer in Emergency and Critical Care


Kylie graduated as a vet from Murdoch University in 1993. Keen to get out of the city, she went off to work as an outback vet in the Pilbara where her patients were frequently 700 kms “down the road”. After treating everything from pet kangaroo’s to semi-wild cattle she spent 18 months working as a locum vet in Britain where she got to know how hard a tiny hamster can bite! Kylie returned to Australia in 1997 to work in country practice in Queensland. In 2000 Kylie moved to Melbourne to join the University of Melbourne veterinary emergency and critical care team.

Kylie found her niche in ECC and spent several years studying in order to gain specialist qualifications in this field. In 2002 she became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS) by examination in the field of emergency and critical care medicine; in 2007 she was awarded a Master in Veterinary Science (MVS) in small animal medicine; and in 2014 she became a Fellow of the ANZCVS (in ECC). Kylie has a keen interest in toxicities and snake envenomation. She lives in Melbourne with one cat, two dogs, two guinea pigs, four chooks and 15 fish.
