Dr. Chris McComiskie

Principal Veterinarian

Dr Chris grew up in Perth where he studied a Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Biology) and a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery at Murdoch University graduating with Honours. Throughout Chris’ career he has worked in small animal practices across South Australia and the Northern Territory for over 10 years.

Together with his wife Kate they established Eastside Veterinary Clinic in 2018 in Glenside. Their vision for Eastside Veterinary Clinic has always been to create a practice that offers comprehensive, gold standard care to clients and patients, while still maintaining family-owned practice qualities and principles.

Chris enjoys all aspects of general practice and has a special interest in internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, ultrasonography and preventative health care.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with family and friends and watching and participating in a variety of sports. His wife often comments on his “unhealthy” relationship with the West Coast Eagles.
