Dr Julian Nalliah
Dr Julian e1517916291715

Practice owner, Dr Julian Nalliah graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science with Honours from the University of Queensland. With over 17 years experience as a veterinarian, Dr Julian brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in both small animal medicine and surgery.

Dr Julian is proud that Daisy Hill Vet is a family-owned practice, which means he is able to care for your animals on a very personal level. He has been performing referral orthopaedic and complex soft tissue surgical procedures at Daisy Hill Vet Clinic for the past 5 years and is now thrilled to be able to care for patients full-time as practice principal.

As a highly respected veterinarian amongst his vet colleagues, Dr Julian has a strong interest in musculoskeletal disorders such as cruciate ligament injury and rehabilitation after surgery, including custom-made knee braces. As part of his dedication to animal welfare, Dr Julian has attended further education in the field of veterinary behaviour and can help you and your pet have a happy life together. Dr Julian provides his clients with the same quality of care that he would expect for his own beloved pets, Daley (a retired seeing-eye dog) and Alfie (a very tolerant cat).

Dr Julian grew up in Brisbane and has fallen in love with the close-knit Daisy Hill community where he and his family live. He is excited to be supporting and getting involved with multiple community events in the local area.

Aside from his furry and feathered patients, Dr Julian is a family man and enjoys spending his time in the community with his wife, Chloe and their children Quinton and Thea. While not working, Dr Julian can be found mountain biking at Daisy Hill Forest, playing basketball and renovating the family home.

Dr Sarah Sheppard
Drr Sarah Sheppard

Dr Sarah, a talented University of Queensland trained veterinarian, is a valued member of the Daisy Hill Vet team. She was selected to participate in a 12-month internship program in a world class specialist hospital, where she worked alongside veterinary specialists. This additional training has enabled Sarah to learn and practice gold standard veterinary medicine and surgery. She is currently working on several case reports which will be published in widely read veterinary journals and publications.

Sarah loves the variety that general practice brings – from managing complex diabetic patients to discussing preventative care – Sarah thrives on getting to know her clients their pets and helping to strengthen the human-animal bond which brings happiness to so many lives.

Being a patient and easily approachable veterinarian, Dr Sarah is highly respectful of her clients’ wishes and works together with pet owners to decide on the best treatment plans for their fur babies.

Her particular interests as a vet include endocrine disorders such as Cushings disease, diabetes and thyroid disorders as well as liver problems and pathology – if your pet has a lump or a skin problem, Dr Sarah can investigate these issues with a thorough microscopic examination.

Sarah also has diagnostic ultrasound experience, which is a non-invasive way to look at your pet’s internal organs, screening for cancer, bladder problems and pregnancy diagnosis.

Dr Sarah has worked as a volunteer for a wildlife hospital in Brazil and locally as a vet in the Pets in the Park program, which is a charity for homeless people, aiming to keep their pets healthy.

Outside of being a veterinarian, Sarah is fascinated by birds of prey, has a dream to do an African wildlife safari trip and enjoys contemporary ballet, basketball, yoga and camping, as well as spending time with her dog “Baxter”.
