Canine Medicine Specialist
David graduated from Murdoch University in 1992 with first class honours and the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association Award for Clinical Proficiency.
After seven years in general small animal practice in Adelaide and the United Kingdom, David returned to Murdoch University for specialist training in Small Animal Medicine, including stints at Massey University in New Zealand and the Royal Veterinary College in London.
In late 2002 David completed his specialist training and returned to Adelaide to establish a referral service. David obtained Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Canine Medicine in 2004 to become South Australia’s only registered specialist in Canine Medicine.
David’s focus is on integrating the best-available scientific evidence, the diverse skills and talents of the entire veterinary care team and a healthy dose of compassion into his daily clinical practice.
David has co-authored ten publications in national and international peer-reviewed veterinary journals in areas that include infectious disease, oncology and neurology. He enjoys providing up-to-date continuing veterinary education to colleagues and has acted as an examiner for the next generation of specialists on several occasions.
