Sharing the Care of Your Best Friends

Dr. Susan Putt

Dr. Putt qualified from Murdoch University, Western Australia in 1989. After graduation she worked in Sydney, country Western Australia and Perth. In 2000 she decided to move her partner Gary and two daughters to Tasmania. After a short time working at Forth, everyone moved to Launceston where Dr Putt worked at one of the other practices in town until March 2004.

In April 2004 Dr Putt took over The Riverside Vet from Dr Sue Woinarski who wished to retire.

Dr Putt shares a house with a couple of four legged creatures - Thomas the French Bulldog, who is only allowed to share the house under sufferance of the cat - Harry who rules the household with an iron paw!

Hannah Stewart

Hannah joined the RVC team in April 2010. She previously worked in a mixed Veterinary practice as well as spending some time working on a diary farm in North West Tasmania. Hannah is currently completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.

Hannah has a Labrador X called Bree and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Teddy. Both her dogs are mischievous and naughty – they often require Dr Sue's attention as they have been known to steal human medication and try to O.D. themselves!

Hannah has an interest in Veterinary behaviour and alternate therapies such as acupuncture for pets. One of her dogs is currently undergoing acupuncture at Devonport. And she enjoys meeting and greeting all members of the family, including the two-legged kind!

Hannah's outside interests include Steampunk and Dieselpunk and she has an extreme shoe fetish.


Edward the Volkswagen Golf is the clinic's trusty workhorse. You may have seen him roaming the streets and highways of our fine state, he may only be small but he's very versatile. If it's carrying equipment and pet food from suppliers & distributors, transporting Dr. Putt to house calls as far away as Lilydale and Upper Blessington, acting as an animal ambulance or even to sad job of transporting recently deceased pets to the crematorium - he takes it all in his stride.
