Dr Andrew Cornwell BVSc.

Veterinarian

Andrew grew up in Newcastle and, as a “dyed in the wool” Novocastrian, was destined to make it his home.

Andrew graduated from the University of Sydney in 1993. He has practised in a large animal practice in Griffith NSW as well as small animal hospitals in Manchester and London in the UK. In 1997, Andrew returned to Australia and joined Cardiff Veterinary Hospital, becoming a partner in 2001. His special interests are surgery and radiology.

Heavily involved in the local community, Andrew was the local Member of Parliament from 2011 to 2014. Married with three gorgeous children, two chooks, and an ageing one-eyed Staffy, Andrew will be here to serve the community for many years to come.

Dr Gail Melluish BVSc.

Veterinarian

Gail has been the trusted owner of Cardiff Veterinary Hospital for almost 20 years and is known for her open and honest personality.

She graduated from the University of Sydney in 1985 and began working as a small animal practitioner in Sydney. She returned to her hometown of Newcastle in 1990 to run the RSPCA Newcastle. In 1993, Gail purchased Cardiff Veterinary Hospital, making it the first female owned and operated veterinary clinic in Newcastle.

Gail developed a keen interest in dermatology after owning a West Highland White Terrier, and this has remained her particular interest ever since.

Gail lives with her husband, Craig, their two boys, Nicholas and Joshua, their cranky cat, Sophie and terrier rescue dog, Scruffy. In her spare time, Gail enjoys gardening and has a keen interest in real estate, especially renovating houses.
