Elizabeth Thrift
Elizabeth graduated from the University of Sydney with honours in 2007 and then worked in small animal general practice in Sydney for three years. In 2011, she completed a multi-discipline internship in medicine, surgery, ophthalmology and emergency/ critical care which confirmed her interest in small animal internal medicine. She then went on to complete an internal medicine internship and subsequently an internal medicine residency. Elizabeth is a registered internal medicine specialist and Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in small animal internal medicine. Elizabeth works as a clinical veterinarian as a Small Animal Internal Medicine Specialist at Northside Veterinary Specialists in Sydney, where she is also the Director of Clinical Improvement & Innovation and runs the Internship & Mentorship program. She also provides continuing education to veterinarians in Feline Medicine and has provided a number of talks and webinars on both feline and canine small animal medicine topics. When it comes to feline medicine, this is what Dr Liz has to say: “In my time as a vet in both general practice then specialist practice, I’ve seen too many cats treated as small dogs. But they are a mystery unto themselves and that’s one of the things I love about them! When you don’t love cats, you don’t get good results. This is why having a passion for feline medicine is so important.”
