About Dr Jayne Weller:
Jayne’s career in zoo and exotic animal medicine began in her graduate year as the associate veterinarian at the University of Sydney Avian
Reptile and Exotic Pet Hospital and Wildlife centre and has continued to be diverse and exciting with no day the same as the last.
Jayne is currently the Senior Veterinarian for the National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra, a role which she has held since 2016. Jayne also currently runs a small business – Exotic Animal Veterinary Service which provides online/phone support for veterinarians and practices who want to improve their exotic animal patient care.
Jayne has also worked in Malawi at the Lilongwe Wildlife Sanctuary as the veterinarian where she aimed for gold standards even in the most difficult situations and with limited supplies. In contrast she ran the Exotic Animal Service at the Animal Referral Hospital in Sydney for 3 years and learnt how to run a successful exotics only service that was both busy and buckets of fun.
In 2015, Jayne successfully attained the Advanced Veterinary Practice Certificate in Zoological Medicine from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and Edinburgh University and in 2017 became a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science in Avian Medicine and Surgery.
Prior to completing a veterinary science degree, Jayne completed a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and a Bachelor of Arts in Music and English Literature. She also spent three years as a zoo keeper at Mogo Zoo where she cared for a range of wild and exotic animals, including small and large carnivores, primates, hoofed stock, birds and reptiles.
While completing her veterinary science degree, Jayne set up a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Nepal. She supports wildlife carers internationally with veterinary advice.
Jayne is passionate about providing all species of animals the highest level of medical and surgical care.
