Small Animal Surgeon / Director
Dr Andrew is a highly regarded small animal surgeon with over 20 years experience as a surgeon and general practice veterinarian.
After completing a Bachelor of Veterinary Science at The University of Melbourne, Dr Andrew went on to further his education in small animal surgery and gained a membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in small animal surgery in 2001, and a Masters of Applied Science from The University of Sydney, in 2010.
Dr Andrew’s experience in small animal surgery began whilst working as a regional GP in Mansfield for over 14 years, receiving a high primary and referral surgical case load. Then in 2012, Dr Andrew began the role as staff surgeon for Animal Hospitals Australia (a large group of clinics in Melbourne – now National Vet Care), and remained as staff surgeon for over 4 years.
Now a consultant, Dr Andrew’s expertise in high end diagnostics and minimally invasive surgery, has him in demand across Melbourne and regional Victoria. With his base at ACE Vet Hospital, Dr Andrew is available for diagnosing complex cases and performing advanced surgeries for both local and referral patients.
Dr Andrew continues to challenge and educate himself, and those around him, engaging with the latest technology and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in general practice and veterinary surgery. When Andrew’s not working he loves a chat and a fish, ideally both at once.
