about us

What Makes Us Different?

Our passion is to ensure each pet receives the best possible veterinary care. During our daily work we have witnessed how powerful the human – animal bond is, and our service to your pets includes a service to you. Each pet and their family are unique, our promise to you is that we will always respect your relationship and choices. Pets positively impact your health and life, as pet owners and vets we can feel this, but science proves that this is not just a feeling, but a fact.  We want to help you look after your animal family because we think they deserve the best care. 

 

We are proud of our expertise as GP vets. Having spent a combined 15 years working in Mackay helping dogs, cats and their owners, there is no disease we have not seen! We identified a need for a mobile service for busy families with young children, pets who don’t enjoy the traditional vet clinic experience, and people without transportation. The idea behind Mackay Mobile Vets was created. Being a small, family run business, we are not here to compete on pricing. We are here to provide a service to the community of pet owners that need our convenient, compassionate and knowledgable care. We want to be your pets favourite vet! We are looking forward to meeting you and your animal family.

Our Vets

Hello, I am Dr Lucinda

I am the pommy in the team, who set up roots in Mackay over a decade ago after a working holiday landed me here. Previously, I volunteered all over the world helping animal charities. The pet owners of Mackay love their pets, and I love helping keep them happy and healthy. A perfect combination! I will always work with you to create the best plan for you and your animal family.

My passion for providing clarity in veterinary care to animal families required me to undertake more advanced medicine study. This has enabled me to offer an honest, knowledgeable service to you. I love being able to provide pet parents with peace of mind around their decisions about their best friend. No case is without a solution. The human-animal bond is why I do what I do.

When not working, I enjoy camping and kayaking with my partner and our beautiful blue Cattle dog, Inca. The kitchen is my other favourite hangout, either baking or cooking for friends or my partner. No-one complains about baked experimentation! Our family is completed by Dotti, the adopted Persian who demonstrates resilience despite recurrent eye disease.

I am excited to meet you and help your animal family. Dr Lucinda Carr

Hello, I am Dr Lisa

I am a dedicated small animal veterinarian who is passionate about helping your furry family members live their healthiest and happiest life. A shared philosophy at Mackay Mobile Vets is that every pet and their family are unique. Both Lucinda and I work with you and your family to build the best health plan that suits you and your pet.

One certainty in life is change… I’m enthusiastic about keeping up to date with the latest research and medical advancements so that your pet receives the best possible care. If I don’t know, I will find out for you.

I was born and bred in Mackay, and after moving away for study and work for 10 years, I brought my family back home to set up roots in Mackay 5 years ago.

When not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three energetic kids exploring and camping in the Australian great outdoors. My animal family includes a boisterous young Labradoodle called Bert, who loves a trip to the beach; a three legged husky called Mia, who is enjoying a very chilled retired life and a very affectionate Burmese cat called Ernie, who has no concept of personal space…and the reason we needed a Robovac!

I am looking forward to helping you and your animal family. Dr Lisa Brinkies

Our Nursing Team

Hello, I am Briony

I am also a Mackay local having lived here all my life. I and am what would be labelled as an “animal person”. My pet ownership has been diverse, including horses, chickens, dogs, cats and caring for baby possums as a wildlife carer. My geriatric horse, Honey prefers to be a living lawn mower than an athlete these days. My pets are all “rescues”. Daphne, a Shar Pei cross, was a failed foster from MARS and Atlas who is a proper “mixed breed” along with Candy the cat were adopted from the RSPCA during my time as a volunteer. Like most other cats, she is in charge!

My role in the team is diverse. I am the nurse, receptionist, admin officer and vet van driver. 


I love that we can help pets in their own home where they feel comfortable and safe. Cuddling puppies is an added benefit! Ensuring that your pet’s experience with us is as good as it can possibly be, I am studying for a qualification from “Fear Free Pets”.


When not in the vet van, I can be found at home with my fiancée Logan re-watching Game of Thrones or hanging out with my friends or parents. Another passion is planning and researching our next holidays.


I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
