Felicity Harradine BVSc (Hons), MVS, MANZCVS, CVA (IVAS) CCRT

I graduated as a vet in 1981 with first class honours, and came to work in Bunbury.  I became interested in Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine later in my career, after I had finished a Master’s degree in Small Animal Medicine, and achieved Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists.

In 2002 I finished a two year acupuncture course run by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Association, and later learnt Bowen therapy (the Smart Bowen Course) for horses and small animals. In the last eight years I have been studying Chinese herbal therapy and use all these modalities in my treatments, which are integrated with Western treatments, to get the best of both worlds!

I treat all animals, but mainly dogs, cats and horses, who all respond very well to treatment.

Interests – Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (including chinese herbs), Bowen therapy, Trigger point therapy, Laser therapy, Rehabilitation, Bush Flower Essences.


Graham Harradine BVSc

I came to Bunbury in 1980 to join Dr Mike Sier’s equine practice. My interests span the range of equine practice including medicine, reproduction, surgery, diagnostic imaging, performance and pathology.  I now enjoy passing on my experience from many years in practice to younger staff members.

I take great pride in the large number of excellent equine and companion animal veterinarians both from Australia and overseas who have regarded the practice highly enough over the years to join the staff to contribute and to learn.  Many of these people have progressed to become eminent veterinarians across Australia and around the world.

I also have a keen interest in cricket and enjoy helping out at Hay Park Cricket Club.


Michael Rae BSc., BVMS, MACVSc.

I came and did practical experience with Graham and Flip as a young uni student back in 1988, went to work in Canberra for a few years but was easily lured back to Bunbury to work for them in 1995 as the practice began to grow.  I worked here until 2000, then went to the U.K to work and travel for 3 years, returning to become a partner in the practice in 2003.

My favourite parts of being a vet are surgery in general, eyes and I am trying to learn more about animal behaviour.  Out of work I enjoy spending time with my 3 kids, lovely wife Tanya, pets Finn, Rocket and Mini Mons and playing hockey for Boyanup.
