animal health consulting


I'm Dr Christine King, a holistic veterinarian based in Emerald, Victoria (Australia). I primarily work with horses, but I also love working with dogs, cats, and farm animals (sheep, goats, cattle, chickens, etc.). I'm semi-retired from practice, but I am still doing some consulting, both in-person and via telemedicine.

In March 2022, I moved from southeast Queensland to the Yarra Ranges in Victoria. For the time being, I'll continue to keep a list of equine/large animal practices in SEQ on my contact page for those in my former practice area who don't have a regular vet for their horses or other livestock.
