Meet Our Team

Fran ishi suki.jpg

Dr Fran Pagnacco

BSc, BVMS

Fran  did her Veterinary training at Murdoch University, graduating in 1999.  Fran has spent the majority of those years working in Perth as well as spending 2 years in the UK as a small animal practitioner.

She loves cats and dogs equally, and gets a huge amount of joy from building a rapport with her clients and patients alike.  

Fran had a dream to provide her local community with a family friendly vet practice - somewhere where people would enjoy coming, confident in the knowledge that they and their pet family will always be welcome and where they will always receive honest, personalized and professional veterinary care.

 

In 2011, this dream started to come true with Vogue Vets in Joondanna - in 2019, she expanded their services to include animal rehab & physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, traditional chinese medicine and traditional western medicine at Vogue Vets & Wellness Centre

Fran regularly updates her continuing professional development and has completed courses and received further Certificates in Canine Sports Medicine, Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation (Univ Tennessee), Post operative Cruciate Rehabilitation, Therapeutic Handling for Canine Rehabilitation and Canine Aqua Therapies.

Fran has 2  handsome rescue cats  and a beautiful Golden Retriever

Fran is available for appointments in Stirling: 

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays;

& in Joondanna:

by arrangement on Mondays

Dr Nadia Marchini

BSc, BVMS

Nadia is another Murdoch University Veterinary Graduate, having graduated from there in 1991.

 

Nadia spent numerous years in mixed animal practice in the Pilbara and south west WA, until she finally moved back to Perth to concentrate on small animal medicine and surgery.

 

After 10 years full time in practice she became disheartened at the inability to help some cases with western medicine. She then became interested in alternative therapies and decided to study for an Advanced Diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. This course was taken over 3 1/2 years with 5 weeks work experience in a hospital in Hangzhou China and, although the course was aimed at people, she has used acupuncture in animals both during and after her studies with great success.

 

On completion of the course Nadia started a mobile veterinary acupuncture business with a colleague but the birth of her children made this harder for her to do. Currently, she is lecturing veterinary nursing part time at Tafe but her passion for helping fur babies with acupuncture is always utmost in her mind. 

 

Nadia is very excited to be involved with a Wellness centre for animals and  to work with other like minded Vets to help your pets feel comfortable and happy throughout their lives.

Nadia is available for appointments at Stirling Wednesday afternoons and every Friday
