Dr Wister Wang

ER Doctor

A country practice

When Dr Wister Wang graduated from Sydney University with her Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2012, she made the decision to move to Mildura to work in a mixed practice vet. She was drawn to veterinary science because she loved animals and the challenge of solving problems… and she definitely encountered her fair share while working in Mildura.

After five years in Mildura, Wister wanted to spread her wings and experience international veterinary practice, so she packed up and headed to the UK to pursue small animal general practice work.

“After seven years of working in mixed and general practice, I realised that my passion lies in emergency and critical care. It was great timing when I came back to Sydney that the VSOS emergency hospital was opening, so I applied for the role.”

Every day is different

Wister is certainly using her problem solving skills here at VSOS. It’s a challenging environment and one she really thrives in.

There isn’t just one thing that Wister loves about her job… the amazing facilities… the incredible team… the reward of treating very ill patients and seeing them recover.

“Every day is different… you never know what kind of case will come through the door next. Working with the team of vets and nurses here is really enjoyable… everyone is so capable and there is always someone to ask for an opinion and or help if you need it.

But for me, nothing compares to seeing a happy client when their pet has recovered and is ready to go home.”

Foster carer

While she was once a foster carer for abandoned cats, Wister had to stop because she found it too hard to let the cats go! As a result, she now has four cats… plus a dog! Crookie, Ghorst, Sirius and Earl were all foster kittens that found a home with Wister along with Meika the Husky x that was a parvovirus patient she treated.

Outside of work, Wister does a lot of bushwalking, goes to the gym and loves to travel. She hopes to sit for the membership exam so she can pursue an emergency and critical care specialty in the future.
