Dr Alysha Thriscutt – Owner and Veterinarian
The Vet and The Van was established in 2021 by Dr Alysha Thriscutt, a veterinarian who has spent her career living and working in Hobart. After seeing how anxious many pets were in vet clinics, she decided to find another way to provide quality veterinary care without all the extra stress, in the comfort and convenience of people’s home.
Alysha is happiest when treating our senior dogs and cats. She is passionate about improving the comfort and quality of life of our older pets and providing them with a dignified end of life experience. She has completed additional studies with the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care in the USA and is a certified Animal Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian.
Outside of work Alysha can often be found bushwalking, on a pottery wheel or at a cafe admiring the old dogs that walk past.
