Because we operate both the Forrestfield and High Wycombe Vet Hospitals, all of our Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses work at both hospitals on a rostered basis.

  • Dr Neville Hoes
    Veterinary Surgeon

    Dr Neville Hoes has been associated with Forrestfield Veterinary Hospital for over 25 years and has been an owner/partner of the practice since 1989. With pride, he has seen the practice grow from its early small beginnings as a mainly horse practice in a semi-rural area, to the entirely small animal, multi-vet modern facility it is today.

    Although interested in all aspects of dog and cat veterinary work, Neville's particular interest is in small animal surgery and orthopaedics, and he is a highly experienced and competent surgeon, regularly performing complex procedures. Married with two teenage daughters, he has a Shihtzu dog, “Martha”, and 2 moggie cats, “Garfield” and “Polly”, both originally strays from the hospital!

  • Dr Jasmin Phua
    Veterinary Surgeon

    Most clients would be very familiar with Jasmin's friendly face at Forrestfield Veterinary Hospital over the last few years. Originally from Singapore, Jasmin moved to Perth when she was 16 years old to follow her dream of becoming a vet, which was finally realised when she graduated from Murdoch University Veterinary School. Extremely dedicated and compassionate, she is constantly striving to be the best General Practitioner vet that she can be, across all fields. Jasmin has a particular “soft spot" for Pugs, and has attended courses specific to Pug veterinary conditions. Her pets include her pug “Teddy” (of course) and a guinea pig named “Pig”.

    Veterinary Surgeon

    Nyssa is a great communicator with a bright and positive attitude that is well known to our hospital clients over a number of years now. Her skills as an outstanding student while at university, graduating near the top of her class, has translated well into private veterinary practice, and Nyssa has a reputation amongst the staff of the hospitals for her amazing veterinary knowledge base and recall. Nyssa’s particular interests lie in medicine, and she enjoys the challenge of “working up” a medical case. Specific interests also include dermatology and ophthalmology. A self-professed "geek", Nyssa is married and she and her husband have added  “fur-babies", in the way of "Theodore" and "Matilda", their kittens, both strays brought in to the hospital. Nyssa is currently on maternity leave pending the birth of their first child in late March 2016, but will be returning to the hospitals later in 2016, & we look forward to her return.
