Our Vets:

Dr Ross McGregor

BVSc  MANZCVSc (Small Animal Surgery)
Practice Owner


Ross graduated from veterinary science in 1989, and worked for several years in equine practice. On moving to Australia in 2002, Ross worked as a registrar at Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital for 4 years. During this time, Ross worked closely with specialists in Surgery, Dermatology and Internal Medicine. Ross attained membership of the Australian college of veterinary scientists in the field of small animal surgery in 2003 (by examination).
Since starting Bilgola Vet Clinic in 2006, Ross has continued to seek further training in Surgery. Ross is currently completing his fellowship training to become a specialist in Small Animal Surgery. Upon completion, Ross will be one of only 15 specialist small animal surgeons in Sydney, and the only surgeon working in general practice.
Ross is dedicated to providing the highest standard of care for your pets at Bilgola Vet Clinic by ensuring we only use the highest quality staff, equipment and medications.

Dr Emilie Field



Emilie graduated with a degree in Veterinary Science from Murdoch University in 2011 and her passion for small animal medicine landed her a veterinarian role at Success Veterinary Hospital in Western Australia that same year. After several years living and working in Perth, Emilie and her family made the move back to the Northern Beaches in April 2015 and we are thrilled to have her on board here at Bilgola.

Emilie enjoys the diversity of general practice and is committed to providing a high quality of care to her patients. A very warm and compassionate vet, Emilie has a strong belief that every pet should be treated like family, and she brings this kind-hearted attitude with her when caring for our sick patients.
When not at work, Emilie can often be seen walking her two Spoodles Teddy and Koko around Bilgola.

Dr Chelia Law


Chelia graduated from The University of Sydney in 2015 and jumped straight into a busy small animal practice on the Central Coast before undertaking a year long surgical internship at North Shore Veterinary Specialist Centre.  Her internship allowed her to work alongside some very experienced specialist Veterinarians and gain skills and knowledge in areas such as soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery and advanced imaging. She continued to work in the General Practice and Emergency and Critical Care department before coming to Bilgola Vet Clinic in early 2020.

She is currently pursuing continuing education in surgery and hopes to become a surgical specialist. Outside of work, Chelia likes to travel, hang out with friends and work on her craft projects.

Dr Helen Todd


Helen graduated from The Royal Veterinary College, London in 2015. After working in a busy practice in England, Helen emigrated to Australia in 2017 to soak up the Northern Beaches lifestyle. She enjoys all aspects of general practice and is passionate about providing the highest standard of care for her patients.
Helen has a strong interest in emergency work, splitting her time between Bilgola and Northside Emergency Veterinary Services (NEVS), so you may see a friendly face at NEVS if your pet ever needs 24 hour care.


Helen has undertaken many extended trips overseas to volunteer her veterinary skills including to Samoa and The Cook Islands and has many plans to continue to put her skills to good use abroad.
