Tunbi Idowu
BSc BVMS FANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine)
Tunbi is originally from Canberra and has always loved animals. Her passion to be a vet made her travel to Western Australia where she studied Veterinary Science at Murdoch University and graduated in 2010. After graduation, she gained a job as a small animal vet in Horsham, Victoria. However, in 2012 the opportunity to work in a small animal practice in Canberra arose and she moved back home and worked at that clinic for 3 years. During Tunbi’s career as a veterinarian, she has always endeavored to improve her knowledge and skill set through attending veterinarian conferences and seminars; as well as participating in workshops, courses and externships. Her motivation to always expand her veterinary knowledge and be a compassionate vet is simple: She would want that type of vet for her own pets. In 2012 she was awarded the post-nominal, Charted Member of the Australian Veterinary Association; for her commitment to continuing education. In 2014 she gained membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists, in Small Animal Medicine. In 2015, Tunbi began a 2-year small animal medicine residency training program at Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre (MVSC) and completed this in December 2017. In 2020 Tunbi passed her Fellowship examination in Small Animal Medicine and was awarded specialist relegation in 2021. Following this, she acted as a fellowship examiner in Small Animal Medicine. Tunbi has an affinity for infectious diseases, endocrinology and haematology and immunology. She also enjoys performing echocardiography and abdominal ultrasounds.
