Thomas grew up on a farm in country Queensland where he developed a lifelong love for all animals, a strong work ethic and personal values. Thomas and his wife share their home with Leroy – a very doted on, beloved and loyal bulldog. Leroy has been by Tom’s side for the past 9 years and it’s not unusual for Leroy to pop out and say hello to clients and patients at reception.
After 18 years as a veterinarian, Thomas purchased the Narre Warren Veterinary Clinic in 2017 where he aims to bring continuous improvement and innovation to ensure our clients and their pets always receive the best possible care.
