Dr Jessica Eastley

Jessica graduated from Murdoch University in Western Australia in 2008, and spent her first 3 years working in Perth where she adopted her first dog “Lilu”. Lilu was brought into her clinic for euthanasia by an owner who said that they did not have enough space for her. In 2011, Jessica and Lilu moved to Darwin, and she has been working at the Ark Animal Hospital since 2012. Jessica Got her second dog “Shadow” at The Ark, where she came in as a bush dog covered in mange, which would have lead to her eventual euthanasia without an owner. Her primary interests are reptile medicine and general surgery, with a specific interest in orthopaedic surgery.
