Dr Paul Jenkins


Specialist in Surgery

(What does this mean?)

Dr Paul Jenkins graduated from University of Sydney in 2010. After graduation, he moved to Tamworth and worked in mixed practice for just over 3 years. He then moved hospitals in the same town, to South Tamworth Animal Hospital, which is a rural referral hospital, for two and a half years. During his time in Tamworth, he completed a postgraduate certificate and Masters in Small Animal Practice from Murdoch University in 2015. In 2016, Paul attained membership to the Small Animal Surgery Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.

Paul and his wife, Liz, spent time in Thailand and Malawi, Africa, participating in trap-neuter-release programs in Buddhist temples and rural villages in Africa. After returning to Australia, Paul undertook a rotating internship at the SASH in 2017 and commenced his residency in Small Animal Surgery in the same year. During his residency, Paul was awarded the Geoff Robins Research Grant by the ANZCVS for his research in the radiographic outcomes of the double pelvic osteotomy in juvenile dogs with hip dysplasia. Paul completed his training in 2020. In 2023, Paul become a Fellow of the Australian & New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and a registered surgical specialist. He enjoys all aspects of surgery with a particular interest in orthopaedics and joint disease.

When not at work Paul enjoys reading, spending time with his two children, Labradors (Daphne and Wilson) and cat (Pickle), cooking, running, bushwalking and relaxing at the beach.
