Desrae Gant
  • Desrae became a Qualified Veterinary Nurse in 1986, and completed AIRC Diploma in Veterinary Management 1998. She has worked within Large and Small Animals Hospitals for 33 years in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas. During this time Desrae was  awarded the Merial  “Award of Excellence Veterinary Nurse of the Year”. Over the years of nursing there was many opportunities to assist in a large variety of medical and surgical procedures. Desrae has a keen interest in orthopaedic surgeries, and nursed for well accredited Orthopaedic Specialists.    

    Desrae has worked with animals all her life and has studied and completed a variety of modalities that can assist animal’s recovery from illness and injury or just to help maintain a happy and healthy life for the dogs. In 2011 Desrae began studies in Natural Medicine completing Herbal Medicine, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, and Emmett Therapy. These modalities combined have contributed to overwhelming outcomes for clients.  Desrae believes in a holistic approach of Diet, Environment, Physical and Emotional wellbeing in helping the dogs recover. In addition Desrae believes owners play the most important role in detecting when their pet is not 100%. Because of this Desrae is passionate about educating clients on these aspects along with correct posture, balanced gaits and the influences on muscles and the nervous system.  She continues to work closely with Veterinarians and Dog Chiropractors to continually expand her knowledge.

    These combinations have helped to build Desrae’s business into a Full Time occupation, giving her huge satisfaction particularly with Post-Surgical Recovery and Geriatric Dogs regaining mobility. She enjoys having very happy pets and owners with noticeable improvements. 

    A trip to America in 2013 has inspired Desrae with plans to study Hydro Therapy which will also assist patients for Rehabilitation. Desrae believes all of these skills and knowledge will assist her in fulfilling her dream of developing a Holistic Clinic.
