Kevin trained as a veterinary surgeon at the University of Melbourne and graduated with honours. He has recently completed a Postgraduate certificate and Masters degree in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery. Kevin worked for several years in Sydney at a busy small animal clinic and emergency veterinary hospital before moving back to Melbourne in 2010.

Kevin is the perfect addition to our series and you'll love watching him work his magic. Even Nugget took a shining to Kevin on first meeting, although that might change once we road test some of the latest treatments!!
