Dr Rob’s story – a lifetime dedicated to
animals large and small

Dr Rob has had an instinctive desire to care for animals since he was a child growing up in Grafton, NSW. At university, his love for creatures large and small led him to study zoology, marine biology, agriculture, entomology and veterinary science.

He started his veterinary career on Australia’s east coast, followed by 5 years in the UK. At that time, vets were expected to be allrounders who treated every type of animal for every type of condition.

By the time he took over the Australind Veterinary Hospital in 2002, he already had comprehensive hands-on veterinary experience.

More About Hospital

Pets are at the heart of Dr Rob’s life

Dr Rob loves family time at home with his wife, 3 children and their beloved pets. They have fish, a cat, dogs and a budgie (she’s called Miracle and can’t fly but follows him everywhere until he pops her onto his shoulder).

Catching a Rugby Union test match is a real treat for Dr Rob. And, when possible, he loves to head overseas for a well-earned holiday.
