VIC / TAS Edition 1

Dr Emma Whiston
B.V.Sc Hons

Dr Emma Whiston is a fully qualified and registered Veterinarian. She graduated with Honours from the University of Melbourne in 1993. She is registered with the Veterinary Board of Victoria and is a member of the Australian Veterinary Association, and the Melbourne Metropolitan Practitioner’s Branch.

Emma practiced for ten years after graduation as a small animal vet, in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. She developed a special interest in the care of geriatric dogs as well as palliative care and pet bereavement issues. She currently owns and runs My Best Friend Veterinary Home Euthanasia Services, a compassionate and personalised home-based service that helps clients and their elderly and terminally ill pets during the final stages of their life together. In 2004, she undertook further study, related to this area of interest, at the Monash Medical Centre for Grief Education.

In response to the need for pet loss support and information, Emma is in the process of establishing a national foundation to bring together professionals working in this area. Bereavement after the loss of a companion animal is one of the most unrecognized and disenfranchised forms of grief in Australia, and the foundation aims to raise awareness and understanding, provide accurate information, support bereaved pet owners and create a directory of reputable and recommended resources and services.

In addition to Emma’s veterinary skills, she also has a background in performance and public speaking. In 2000 and 2001, Emma undertook actor training at the National Theatre Drama School in Melbourne. In 2005,with a desire to promote responsible pet ownership, Emma combined her veterinary & performance skills and worked with other pet care professionals to produce and present an entertaining, educational and professional stage show. ‘Dr Emma’ is the MC of the show, and the doggy stars are all rescued from shelters, given a loving home for life, and receive veterinary care and training. It is designed for primary age children who learn about pet ownership while having heaps of fun. Performances have included the main stage at the Melbourne Pet and Animal Expo (as Dr Harry’s ‘warm-up’) and Federation Square in Melbourne.

Emma lives in Melbourne with her husband Greg and their two children. They are passionate about working Australian Kelpies and currently share their home with two – 12 year old Danny (who was the maid of honour at Emma and Greg’s wedding) and 2 year old Rusty.
