Dr. Kelly Gan


Dr Kelly Gan is the newest member of the Bird Vet Melbourne team.  Which explains why we haven't chased her around with a camera much yet!

Kelly graduated from Melbourne University in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

During her final years in vet school, she discovered her passion for birds and now aspires to sit her membership exams in avian medicine and surgery.

Harold, Kelly's pet rooster is living proof of Kelly's passion for birds.  When Harold came into Kelly's life his prognosis wasn't great.  Kelly managed to turn it around and now - well we think Harold is one of the best looking roosters around.  The star of Chicken Day, he wore his tutu proudly and had all the girls looking at him.

Aside from working at Bird Vet Melbourne, she also loves dog and cat medicine and works at a small animal general practice clinic in Geelong. 

When Kelly is not working, she enjoys gardening and spending time with her pet white bellied caiques, cockatiels and rooster- Mia, Zoe, Penny, George, and Harold.
