Animal ER Hospital - Dr. Elizabeth Means

After finishing her veterinary degree in 2008, Liz began her career in small animal general practice in Auckland. Looking for a new challenge, she joined the Animal Emergency Centre in 2011 and has been in emergency practice ever since.

Liz and her husband Damon live in Auckland and love to travel whenever they can co-ordinate their annual leave. Their furry family includes much loved min-pin Zoe and cats Finn and Leto.
