Tony graduated from Murdoch University, with his Veterinary Medicine and Surgery degree in 1987. He then spent 3 years in a busy predominantly small animal hospital in Western Australia before heading overseas to the United Kingdom, for an extended period of work in a number of progressive small animal hospitals under the tutelage of some of the UK's top orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeons and medical specialists.
Upon returning to Australia (why would anyone stay in the UK when we have perfectly good convict ships to bring us here?), he worked as a senior clinician and surgeon in a number of Perth Veterinary Hospitals, before setting up one of Perth’s first and most successful Veterinary house calls business.
Around 2007 Tony took over the management of Larkhill Small Animal Hospital as a partner and continues to pursue his passion of high quality medicine and surgery .He has a special interest in both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery as well as diagnostic imaging.
Outside of work , he is a salt water tragic, enjoys diving, both freediving and scuba, windsurfing, photography when able, and is a sad rugby fanatic .Family life at home consist of 2 Labradors, a very old cat, a lovely wife and 2 rapidly growing boys, and 2 fat guinea pigs..
