Our Veterinarians at Bargara Vet Surgery
Dr David Challen
B.V.Sc. M.A.C.V.Sc. (Small Animal Internal Medicine and Feline Medicine)
I then made a professional life-changing decision I decided that my professional life should be centered around the treatment of dogs and cats. I have spent some time attaining higher degrees in the diagnosis and treatment of these animals. Two of these degrees are MACVSc in Internal Medicine of dogs and cats. The profession has changed dramatically from the days when I graduated. It has gone from a commercial animal oriented profession to a preventative small animal oriented profession. It has changed from a profession who mainly reacted to a problem to a profession that is proactive with the owners to prevent problems before they occur. Now we use the latest in blood testing equipment, powerful x-rays, fibre optics etc to make a diagnosis and we use the latest information in the treatment of animals.
Dr Randall Keyes
B.V.Sc.(Hon) B.V.Biol. M.A.C.V.Sc.(Small Animal Surgery)
However, I have come to find the challenges of small animal practice more rewarding. I prefer to look upon all small animals as companion animals as I feel these animals fulfil an important role in our daily lives and are well worth considering as being part of every family.
I obtained a Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in small animal surgery in 1996.
- Small animal surgery
