BSc (Veterinary biology), BVMS, MVS (Conservation medicine)

Veterinarian, conservationist, photographer


Hi. I'm Gary. I'm a Perth veterinarian with a diverse career and manic interests. I play music (badly), make movies, photograph wildlife, ride motorbikes remorselessly, fight damage to the natural world endlessly, and stay fit occasionally.

I founded the Animal Happiness Vet in 2014. Today that encompasses a full service general practice hospital in Manning and a mobile service visiting all of metropolitan Perth.

I am currently passionate about

1. Climate change and am a founding member of Vets for Climate Change.

2. End of life choices. Euthanasia should not be reserved only for our pets. Quality of life and quality of death matter.

Founder and veterinarian - Animal Happiness Veterinary

2014 - current

In late 2014 I established Animal Happiness Mobile Vet. Initially purely an ambulatory service as a general practitioner I continued my focus on Australian native wildlife, related exotics, backyard poultry and behavioural casework. In 2016 I opened Animal Happiness Manning Vet, a full service GP vet hospital in central southern Perth. My primary point of differentiation continues to be an unwavering focus on making the whole veterinary process as fear-free and happy as possible for the animals and their people.

Senior veterinarian - Wattle Grove Vet Hospital

2009 - 2015

Having just completed 4 years volunteering at Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and a Masters in Veterinary Conservation I took on a role as a senior veterinarian in 2009. I was responsible for the full range of general practice surgical and medical cases as well as wildlife and exotics casework. During this time I also started to focus on behaviour medicine in dogs, cats and parrots.
