  • Greg Covarr

    Greg Covarr graduated from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 1985. He spent two years in the dental department at the University of Pretoria doing research on guard dogs' canine teeth, when he then decided to seek his fame and fortune in London. It was there he met his wife Bronwyn, whereby together they set up three successful veterinary practices.

    Greg now enjoys living on the Northern Beaches of Sydney with the menagerie of pets his wife and children have collected. When Greg is not working as a vet he can be seen playing golf at Long Reef, or pitting his skills on the tennis court against his mates. Greg loves to keep fit and is often riding his mountain bike in the National Park.

  • Dani Gane
    Trainee Vet Nurse

    Dani is a young, vibrant and passionate vet nurse currently completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. Dani started at Forest initially as a volunteer but has shown great promise so has now joined the team. In her time at Forest she has assisted in rehoming kittens and taking home two fur babies of her own. Her fur family consists of three cats; Lola, Pixi and Kyra. And two rabbits; Humphrey and Snoop.

    Dani has a big heart and thrives when nurturing our sick patients back to health. She hopes to continue pursuing a career as a vet nurse and is always willing to lend a helping hand to any animal who crosses her path.

  • Kate Ryan
    Kennel Hand

    Kate joined the practice in March of 2016 as a kennel hand, after completing 6 months of volunteering for the Duke of Edinburgh award. Her association with Forest Animal Hospital began in 2013 when her family adopted Patches, a rescue rabbit, and since then she has taken on board many furry friends from the hospital.

    Although currently still in high school, she has dreamed of being a vet for most of her life and has been surrounded by animals since a young age. She has had experience with animals great and small, and she enjoys travelling to her cousins’ farm and working with livestock, but also treasures her six special rabbits and one cat she has at home. Kate aspires to complete a Bachelor of Veterinary Biology and Doctor of Veterinary medicine, but in the meantime would love to complete an Animal First Aid or Animal Training course at Taronga Zoo as part of her year 11 and 12 studies.

  • Marmie
    Self-proclaimed practice manager

    Marmie came to Forest Animal Hospital in 2010 as a stray. She was brought in by a member of the public after being found locked in a garage with her four kittens. She was very underweight at the time and the staff at Forest helped to feed her kittens as she did not have enough milk for them.

    Furever homes were found for all four of her kittens, and the initial aim was to find her a good home also. However, once she realised she was onto a good thing here, she hypnotised all the staff with her beautiful eyes and no one could let her go.

    It took her a while to train all the staff to her liking and she still has to keep them in line now and then with a (friendly) swipe.
