Dr Hamish Currie obtained his BVSc from Onderstepoort in 1984 following which he did his national services with the State Vet in Kwazulu Natal. He has an interest in small animal surgery. His empathy and years of experience gives him the ability to discern the needs of both owners and their pets, and give balanced advice in difficult situations. His menagerie of pets includes two Rottweilers, a Jack Russell and a thoroughly spoilt long haired Dachshund. Hamish loves escaping to the bush and has a passion for wildlife.
