Dr Caitlin Logan was an exceptional veterinarian. She joined the Animal Emergency Service in 2006 and quickly became the most popular vet in the practice. She was down to earth, approachable, and she loved her patients. Caitlin always went the extra mile for her patients and their owners. She quickly become the expert Emergency & Critical Care Veterinarian, assuming the role of teaching new vets how to practice at the highest standard.
Caitlin became the veterinary manager in 2009, becoming involved in every part of the Animal Emergency Service (AES) from recruiting veterinarians to hospital maintenance. She was the go to person for everyone in the practice, dealing with everything from challenging patient diagnostics to personal problems.
Caitlin passed in January 2013. Her death was a horrific loss for her family, friends, the AES team, and the wider veterinary community. She is sorely missed and will never be forgotten. Her influence is everywhere within the practice - so she's still helping us improve the standard of our work.
Caitlin remains on our website to remind everyone of her massive contribution to the practice, the people, and the pets of South East Queensland. The Animal Emergency Service holds a memorial event for Caitlin each year with all funds raised donated to a charity of her choice.

Dr Logan's official AES Biography:
"Veterinary science was an avenue that allowed me to combine my love of animals, problem solving and surgery.' Dr Logan graduated in 1997 and worked in mixed practice, progressing to teaching in a university clinic until her graduation. After working in a private small animal and equine practice, she transitioned to emergency medicine with the Animal Emergency Service.
Dr Logan particularly enjoys critical care 'which requires strict attention to detail and the ability to pre-empt complications. Success in Pet Intensive Care comes with great personal and professional satisfaction. I've discovered my loyalties are firmly entrenched in the emergency and critical care of companion animals.'
Dr Logan loves working at AES because the whole veterinary team strives to provide the highest level of care to our patients, at all times of the day or night. Being able to meet the challenges and variety of emergency work from such a well-equipped facility means that excellent outcomes are possible for all patients, even those that are critically ill or injured.
Caitlin has obtained her masters in small animal medicine and surgery as well as 3 years of study in emergency medicine mentored by Dr Webster and Dr Lemin. She has been awarded a Membership in the College of Veterinary Scientists in Emergency and Critical Care by examination and is currently studying her MBA to improve leadership and management skills.
In her spare time Caitlin volunteers as a feeder to her dogs as well as enjoying sleep, fishing, 4WDing, camping and taking her beloved dogs touring."
