  • Sue Richards
    Receptionist / Veterinary Nurse

    Sue is a Veterinary Nurse with over 30 years’ experience in the industry.

    In 1996, Sue and her husband Dr. David Richards opened The Causeway Veterinary Clinic. Prior to this they had owned and run two large, small animal and equine Veterinary practices in Melbourne employing 4 Veterinary Surgeons and 12 Veterinary Nurses.

    Sue has had a keen interest in animals her whole life most recently running a Gelbvieh cattle stud and commercial Angus herd on an irrigation property on the outskirts of Shepparton. Her interest in large animals initially began in the equine field where she owned the second performance recorded warmblood horse in Australia and was involved in early development of the breed, breeding a number of high performance animals including Olympic qualifiers and grand prix dressage horses.

    In the 1980's and early 90's Sue ran with her husband an embryo and artificial breeding centre for Cattle, Sheep and Goats and was involved in developing many minority breeds that are now well established today.

    Sue has also been involved in breeding registered dogs and so offers a huge range of diversity and experience to her role at The Causeway Veterinary Clinic.
