Dr Sean Avni
Dr Sean Avni
Sean joined Greencross Vets in March 2016 and filled a number of roles and positions across a variety of locations before joining the South Melbourne team as Veterinary Director in September 2016.
From sunny South Africa, with 15 years in small animal practice, Sean has a wealth of clinical experience, both medical and surgical, and is a firm believer in the value of a patient-based approach and the central role the owner plays in the success of any pet health program. Sean relocated to Melbourne with his best friend Cody, a moderately overweight “labrador”, to be closer to his 13 year old son. When not at work he may be found paddling around Port Phillip Bay, surfing the open coast or looking for new places to hike with Cody. Sean is both excited and humbled to be taking on the role of Veterinary Director at Greencross Vets South Melbourne and is looking forward to meeting you and your furry friends soon.
