Lead Vet

Dr Sylvia Rivero


Sylvia has always had a passion for animals and from an early age dreamed of being a vet. Despite originally wanting to be a zoo vet, she soon found her passion was in companion animals and treating people’s fur babies. Since graduating with honours from The University of QLD in 2012, Sylvia has been working in small animal clinics in the Ipswich area, and as a local, is excited to have recently joined the MyVet Springfield Lakes Team where she can’t wait to meet the community and their pets. Sylvia enjoys all aspects of general practice, but in particular likes internal medicine.

At home, Sylvia lives with her fiance David and their rescue fur kids: 3 cats called Freddie, Oliver and Jessica, and a cheeky Wolfhound X called Finnegan, who on the weekends is also their fellow coffee, camping and beach buddy.
