Dr Alain Marc

He studied Veterinary Science at the University of Melbourne, graduating with Honours, and has completed post-graduate studies in Small Animal Surgery and in Diagnostic Ultrasound. He also has special interests in surgery and eye diseases.

When away from the surgery, Alain likes tinkering with computers, is a keen (sometimes tragic) golfer and something of a car fanatic. He loves to spend time with his family and (before COVID) to travel.

 


Dr Sandy Cranston

Veterinarian

Sandy was born and educated in the UK, graduating in Veterinary Science from Bristol University. He spent 5 years working in dairy and small animal practice in the Lake District before coming to Australia for a working holiday. He's been working in small animal practices in Melbourne since then (more of the working and less of the holiday) and has been part of the Mont Albert Vet team since late 2003. His interests cover all aspects of dog and cat medicine, surgery and welfare.

His family includes three children, one dog, one cat, one cockatiel, three chooks and four goldfish. Away from work he would prefer to be tinkering with old cameras, taking photos, walking, camping, fishing, kite flying, swimming or holidaying but finds that work around the house, gardening and running around after his children keep him more than busy.


Dr Aish Ryan

Veterinarian

Aish graduated with honors from the University of Melbourne in 2003. She practices integrative veterinary medicine and has further qualifications in acupuncture and animal biomechanical medicine (using techniques from osteopathy and chiropractic). Aish has a special fondness for for working with senior pets and assisting patients with complex mobility issues. 

Outside of Mont Albert vet clinic Aish is an anatomy demonstrator at the University of Melbourne


Dr Roslyn Atyeo

Veterinarian

Roslyn graduated from Murdoch University School of Veterinary Studies in 2000. She moved to Melbourne as a new graduate with four Border Collies and a sense of adventure. She has lived in Melbourne ever since, and has well and truly made her home here. She has been working in general practice since graduating, with taking a few years off to raise a family.

 

Roslyn has keen interests in musculoskeletal medicine. She has completed additional qualifications in acupuncture, Animal Biomechanical Medicine (ABM), and is currently doing further qualifications in rehabilitation therapy. These qualifications allow her to help patients recovering from surgery or injuries, to help animals age more gracefully with less pain and discomfort, and to help animals with soft tissue or neurological pain. She’s passionate about treating the whole animal, and using the best of both western medicine and integrative medicine for whatever the patient needs.

 

In her spare time Roslyn trains and competes with a team of Border Collies in the dog sport of Agility with her family. Her dogs compete at the top levels in agility and have won multiple top state awards, and represented Victoria at multiple national events. Roslyn’s family keeps her very busy and consists of fur kids, skin kids, chickens and tropical fish. She also is an avid gardener, and loves designing and creating garden spaces to relax in and enjoy.


Viv Hermans

Viv has always had a love of animals and a keen passion to become a vet nurse. She joined the Mont Albert Vet team straight after leaving school and enjoys all aspects of vet nursing, especially the surgical side. Being in the same practice for a while gives her a special feeling of bonding with the pets and their owners.

In her time off she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and relaxing by a favourite lakeside spot in country Victoria. The love of her life at the moment is Hudson, an American Cocker Spaniel, who can be heaps of fun.
