Bio:

Dr Suzanne Polak has a lifetime of experience with horses, however she continues to respect them and be surprised by them. Suzanne has a Diploma in Pastoral Production from Longreach Pastoral College, a Bachelor of Applied Science in Equine Studies from Charles Sturt University, a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Sydney University and most recently a Graduate Diploma in Animal Biomechanical Medicine from Box Hill Institute.

When Suzanne is not formally studying, she continues self-learning in all thing’s equine health, medicine, behaviour and general wellbeing.  In her spare (not much) time Suzanne takes care of her small farm with a couple of Quarter Horses for campdrafting, a cattle dog X, a mini fox terrier X and a stable cat named Betty.

Suzanne joined the Canberra Equine Hospital team as an equine vet in 2010, where she has been able to further enhance her skills in anaesthesia/analgesia, podiatry & musculoskeletal soundness, reproduction, and dentistry. Since completing the Graduate Diploma in 2016 (the first class to complete the new course) Suzanne has taken on board more complementary fields such as acupuncture and biomechanical treatments (chiropractic and osteopathy combined).  Suzanne likes to combine personal experiences, acquired knowledge, and new techniques in helping horses become more functional and pain free.
