She will work tirelessly to re-unite lost and stray pets though will be the first to adopt an orphaned bunny

Keira Trute (Cert IV Registered Veterinary Nurse)

Keira is a 2020 graduate having successfully completed her nursing course through the COVID19 pandemic.  To most she is already a familiar face having been a long term work experience student but also through her time at  Forest Lakes Shopping Centre. She is a tireless worker who sets high standards and loves her “lists” to make sure she doesn’t miss a thing!

Having grown up with pets and having a special interest in health care her desire to become a vet nurse has been life long.

Keira is very hands on and has excelled as a surgery nurse with a passion for anaesthetic monitoring, patient surgery preparation and anaesthetic recovery. We look forward to her development into a vet nurse superstar!

Eloise Millard (Cert IV Registered Veterinary Nurse) 


Eloise is a 2021 Veterinary nursing graduate who has an extensive background in rescue bird health and welfare. She has been a long term volunteer at the WA Wildlife Sanctuary  and since has become an important part of their medicine team. She has quickly become an important team member who’s resources have been invaluable in our response to stray and displaced animals. 

In what little spare time Eloise has left she loves playing rugby and is also a member of a band that has travelled to Hawaii, the USA and Europe! 

We look forward to watching her grow further into an amazing pet advocate at Huntingdale Vet
