Dr. Julian Alexander
I spent my early childhood years growing up in Templestowe and have always had a strong association with the area.
After 2 years I returned to Melbourne and joined a small animal practice, before travelling to the United Kingdom where I experienced life as a locum Veterinarian.
On my return to Melbourne I spent many years working as a senior Veterinary Surgeon in a clinic in the Northern suburbs before returning to work on the Eastern side of Melbourne.
We have two rescue pets, Bono the domestic short hair cat and Molly the English Pointer, who is currently my personal trainer, keeping me fit, running in the morning’s.
I enjoy all aspects that veterinary science offers, including, medicine, surgery, dentistry and of late behaviour and it’s challenges.
Coming to work and meeting with owners and their pets, being able to be a part of their lives and help when it is required, is something that continues to reward me every day. I look forward to seeing you at the Templestowe Veterinary Clinic.

Ever since having my first childhood pets of chickens and rabbits, I have always had a love for animals.
I graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2008, and have worked in general practice in Melbourne and in England. I enjoy internal medicine and surgery, and after working for several years at a “rabbit and guinea pig only” clinic I remain passionate about offering quality care tothese adorable pocket pets.
Did you know that rabbits are now the 3rd most popular companion mammal? I thoroughly enjoy helping clients understand their pet rabbits and guinea pigs more and helping them take better care of their furry friends.
At our clinic we are proud to provide services for rabbits and guinea pigs such as neutering, diagnostic investigation (including blood tests, radiography, ultrasonography), a range of medical treatment, dental treatment, grooming and rabbit vaccination. Seeing a rabbit restored to good health gives me a hop in my step 🙂
I live with my husband and a household of pets: Pomeranian x Cavelier dog Teddy, tabby cat Benji, and rabbits Pikelet and Periwinkle, both friendly rescue rabbits. In my spare time I like to paint, read, travel, and potter in the garden.
Alice is currently on maternity leave.
I began my nursing career in 2007 in my home town of Albury Wodonga, where I completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies and Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
I joined the Templestowe team in July 2011 (how time flies!) and completed my Certificate in Microchip Implantation & Certificate IV in Frontline Management.
I have a furry friend of my own, Bailey, a male ginger & white Domestic Medium Hair cat, who loves to keep me on my toes!
My name is Alex and I am a high school student with a passion for animal care. I began work experience at the clinic in July 2016 and was later asked to become a member of this amazing team.
I love working with animals great and small and aspire to become a veterinarian when I leave school. I have learnt so much working here with this incredible team, who are always willing to help me, guide me and teach me new skills.
At home, my family and I live with our gorgeous dog Dougal, who loved lots of cuddles and is always up to mischief!
I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends here at Templestowe Veterinary Clinic!
My name is Colleen and I started grooming in 2009, bathing and taking care of dogs at a grooming school. I worked my way up the ranks and went through grooming training and began a very successful grooming career that I adore.
In 2015 I completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Animal Disease Biotechnology, and look forward to eventually continuing my studies.
