About Creature Calls

Creature Calls is a mobile and house call veterinary service in Hobart, run by Dr Cathy Forman from her Bonnet Hill home using her electric car.  

Meet Dr Cathy Forman BVSc Hons

Hi, I’m Dr Cathy - I’ve been a vet for almost 30 years now.

My experience as a Veterinary Surgeon has given me time to work out what’s important - which includes how precious the human animal bond is. I want to help you keep that connection healthy and relaxed in your home.

 I also care very much about practicing up to date evidence based medicine. For this reason I have undertaken extensive year long courses in Dermatology, Oncology and Small animal medicine as well as sitting for and passing Membership of the the Australian college of Veterinary scientists in Small animal internal medicine.

Lauren Lidgerwood, our nurse, has been an integral part of Creature Calls since the beginning, and is a very experienced and compassionate vet nurse.

We worked together for around six years previously, and although our careers took different paths our friendship remained strong.   Recently, when I decided that Creature Calls was my “calling”, Lauren offered her help.
