Our brand new, purpose built clinic is designed to make you and your pet feel at ease, as soon as you walk through our front doors just metres from the beach. We are committed to providing you with the best possible experience and our highly trained nurses and vets are here to listen to your concerns. We understand that pets are part of the family and your fur-baby will be treated like ours. Our hospital is equipped with the latest diagnostic tools to provide accurate treatment regimes and get your pet back on the road to recovery and into your arms.
Dr Andy Pieris is the owner of Casuarina Seaside Vet in NSW, with her husband Josh who is also a vet.
Graduating in 2009, Dr Andy worked for 2 years as a large animal vet before focusing on dogs and cats. Dr Andy was most recently crowned 'Most Trusted Vet' in a national search for the next 'Bondi Vet', she is also an ambassador for Turmeric Australia. Growing up in Queensland, her love of animals was evident with goats, horses, cats, dogs and more, part of her life at home.

I have been with Casuarina Clinic since its opening and I couldn’t be happier with our fantastic team and clients.
I love being able to interact with our clients and their pets, sharing stories and information. I also have an interest in nutrition, surgical nursing and wildlife. I began my nursing at Byron Bay where I spent over 2 years working in a small but busy practice. I then went to Darwin where I spent a further 2 years working in high volume practice working predominantly in surgical and hospital nursing. During my time in Darwin I also worked heavily with a wide range of wildlife, performing emergency care and rehabilitation on animals including reptiles, wallabies, sea turtles, birds, flying foxes and raptors. Being able to work so closely with such amazing people and animals ignited my passion to always care and treat our diverse native wildlife.
I’m looking forward to watching our clinic grow and change!
I started in the industry in 2002 and have worked ever since nursing and caring for all our furry friends big and small. I am originally from Melbourne and have worked as a surgical nurse gaining much experience assisting with various cases over the years. I work part time as the Senior Nurse at Casuarina and enjoy pampering and spoiling all of our patients, including giving out many cuddles! I love my job and feel very blessed that I am able to work in an industry that I am passionate about.
I began my career in Veterinary Nursing after years of world wide travel, where I volunteered with animals ranging from wildlife rehabilitation centers to dog shelters, and have loved every minute of it.
I have always had a passion for the care of animals and have been surrounded by them from a young age, growing up on a property just outside of Byron Bay. I always knew I wanted to grow a career out of helping them and knowing I now play a role in nursing your fur babies back to health and seeing them go home healthy is the most rewarding and fulfilling part.
I have a beautiful kelpie X named Indie and live with a gorgeous rescue Labrador/Ridgeback named Kofi and a bulldog Pablo, so when I’m not working or continuing my studies, my time is spent around my furry dog pals.
