As a vet who’s been practising since 1995, Dr Rob understands that when your pet needs medical attention, you want them to have the best care possible. He wants that too.
Over the years he’s completed extensive training with specialists in Australia and the United States. He’s always adding to his skill set.
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.
Today, Dr Rob is a highly skilled vet, a qualified surgeon and co-founder of Treendale Pet Medical Veterinary Hospital. His commitment to professional development means the range of advanced services he can offer includes:
He’s known for his dedication, for providing top quality care and his friendly outlook. You get the same warm welcome whether your pet needs a scheduled daytime procedure or emergency treatment at 2am.
Dr Rob’s vision was to custom-design Treendale Pet Medical Veterinary Hospital with pet comfort as a priority.
The result is a welcoming, pet-centred animal hospital that’s fully equipped to provide routine and advanced services all under one roof.
So, pets in the Bunbury region can experience greater comfort and continuity of care from an awesome, dedicated team.

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.
