About Our Clinic

Mowbray Veterinary Clinic is a small animal practice in Launceston, Tasmania which first opened its doors in 1992.  Since then the clinic has grown to employ four full time veterinarians through its work in the community and its dedication to animal welfare.

Improving the human-animal bond through effective and compassionate veterinary care is central to everything we do.

All of our veterinarians are current members of the Australian Veterinary Association, Sydney University’s Continuing Education Program and the International online Veterinary Information Network.

She moved to Tasmania in 2011 where she began working with Large and Small animals before coming to Mowbray Veterinary Clinic in 2015. In 2015 she completed the Small Animal Surgery Continuing Education course through Sydney University, and became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and Small Animal Surgery, passing her written and oral exams with highest marks. When not in the clinic you can usually find Sally-Anne on top of a mountain playing her bagpipes or playing with her two cats Brian and Lucy.

Dr Carolynn Evans BSc BVMS MVS(SAP)

I started working at MVC in 2022. I have been a veterinarian since 2001. I spent time working overseas in the UK for 3 years after graduation in mixed practice. I then returned to Australia and worked throughout Vic, Tas and WA as a locum in mixed practice before settling in Hobart and working in small animal practice – where I completed my Masters in Veterinary Studies in Small Animal Practice.

I currently work 3 days a fortnight at MVC and spend the rest of my week managing and working on my beef property past scottsdale where we breed pedigree Shorthorns. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine – but especially internal medicine and anesthesia. I have too many animals on the farm – 4 dogs, 2 cats, 5 peacocks, 10 chooks, 6 pigs, 5 goats and 200+ cows. I love to spend my free time outside feeding and talking to my cows and playing tractors with my 7 year old son!
