Eithan Giles

Senior Nurse

Senior Avian Nurse

Eithan Giles joined our team in November 2020 as a fully qualified veterinary nurse.
Eithan found his way to vet nursing while sitting in our waiting room with his sick cockatiel Zelda. He decided to become a vet nurse while waiting for his appointment because he was inspired to look after animals.

These days, Eithan is our senior nurse and plays a significant role in the management team. He’s also very well known as our “tech guy”. When we break a computer (or want a new one), he’s the one we bug. As we’ve recently had a significant software upgrade, Eithan’s work is never-ending and no question is too stupid.

Eithan’s real strength though is in his ability to monitor anaesthetics in addition to all round nursing duties. He is very well-experienced with most breeds of animals, so it’s hard to surprise him with something different.

Our student nurses have come to rely on Eithan for training and it’s something we’ve learned to trust him for. He actively gets his students involved in every aspect of clinic life and word has spread that students aren’t just stuck cleaning during their placement shifts. Eithan is the reason we have a placement waiting list.

Eithan has completed his Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and is always looking into extension studies.

Eithan really should have a warning label stuck to his back (sometimes nurses get to the stickers and he actually does). If he ever asks you to open a small wooden box, run away.

Eithan lives with his 4 cockatiels, 2 conures, quaker and 2 dogs. Watch this space he’s likely to end up with a galah as he has a soft spot for them.

When Eithan is not at the clinic, he’s often pet-sitting. We’re never entirely sure where he’s living, but it’s ok, he still shows up.

Outside of the clinic, Eithan competes in paintball. He enjoys gaming. He’s the one that gets us lost on dog walks.

"Fast paced and compassionate.  I never had a bad experience going to this clinic.  The nurses are thoroughly educated, compassionate, accommodating, understanding and quick thinking individuals who work so amazingly as a team.  They are completely hospitable and I am very impressed with how much time they dedicate to informing customer queries despite how busy they are.  They are so polite and composed disregarding any type of situation that they are in.  All the nurses here are extraordinarily talented and I pray that they are being reciprocated the exact amount of respect they deserve from their customers..."
