Dr Lisa Chimes gets to combine her love of animals and her passion for television with her role as a vetwith ‘smarts’ on Channel Ten primetime program BondiVet. Her role with the much loved family program sees her in the trenches of Sydney’s Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH). Lisa works at the 24 hour emergency unit day in and day out, even when the cameras stop rolling, saving the lives of our fury family members.
Bondi Vet will continue to follow the very gracious yet ballsy Lisa and her SASH team on their life saving missions for a sixth season to air in 2014. After graduating from Sydney University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science with first class honours, Lisa completed her internship in veterinary emergency and critical care in Melbourne. It was during these years that Lisa discovered her passion for providing specialist and compassionate care for dogs and cats (all breeds and sizes!) so in 2008, Lisa moved back to her home suburb of Bondi and commenced work at SASH.
In 2010, Lisa obtained post-graduate qualifications by becoming a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Medicine. Lisa is an ambassador for Purina, The Animal Welfare League and previously worked with Atopic Dermatitis Awareness for Dogs. She has made appearances on Ten's Ready Steady Cook, The Project, The Circle, Breakfast, Ten News, Nine's Mornings. Lisa is also a favourite on the pet expo circuit, sharing her knowledge and animal know how with public in her spare time.
