Welcome to Greencross Vets Moorooka
The Greencross Moorooka team have been caring for our local furry friends for the last 35 plus years. The clinic has recently undergone a huge transformation which will give your pets the luxury of enjoying a state-of-the art clinic with exciting new features such as a larger clinic layout, the latest technology, new laboratory equipment, separate dog and cat enclosures and a much larger retail range.
During the month of July the team will embrace the launch of the new and improved clinic offering patients the opportunity to have your own personal clinic tour where you’ll be able to familiarise yourself with the areas that your pet/s will experience during their visit giving you that piece of mind. And as an opening gift to our customers your furry friends will also leave with a personal gift from the Greencross Vets Moorooka team including dogs frisbees, cat collars, bandanas, leads and more.
With the extra space comes opportunity to expand in our services also, Dr Hugh is pleased to announce that come spring the team will be launching Puppy School, where puppies will be trained by qualified veterinary nurses with a special interest in animal behaviour. And as we reach our warmer months we plan to launch our in house grooming services offering hydrobaths, clipping, scissoring and special occasion doggy doo’s.

I have extensive experience in the veterinary industry graduating with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland in 1975. I have been supporting local pet owners in Toowoomba for over thirty five years, establishing the Care Veterinary Group before entering into a joint venture with Greencross Vets in 2011. I recently moved to Brisbane to spend more time with our family and am delighted to join the Moorooka team. My special interests include medicine and surgery on dogs and cats, however I have treated a range of different animals throughout my career. I am passionate about continuing education and spend time guiding and mentoring other Veterinary Associates within the Greencross Vets practices to ensure that we provide the highest standards of care and service. My wife Libby and I have a beautiful Labrador named Ella who is a valued member of our family unit and is often seen in winter wearing the latest hand knitted “number” that her mother has created!

I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2005 and started my clinical life in a small animal practice in the lovely Blue Mountains. After 2 years, I decided to spread my wings a little further afield, moving to the UK to combine working with travelling the world. I gained a lot of experience in small animal practice overseas. Returning home, I spent the last 4 years in a Greencross Veterinary Hospital in Toowoomba.
The opportunity arose to transfer to Greencross Moorooka and I am excited to be back in sunny Brisbane, close to family and friends. I have interests in both the surgical and medical side of Veterinary Medicine, but especially like to ultrasound. I am passionate about providing the best standards of care to all my patients and strive to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing medical world.
I have a lovely (but crazy) Catahoula Cur X called Ali who comes running with me and a cat called Victor who rules the house! I also have a lovely hive of native bees that are a joy to watch at work during the day.
