After carrying Dave through university, Rob graduated in 1992 with honours and began working at the AMC in 1999. He joined the partnership in 2002 with Tim and original partner (now retired) Malcolm Waterston. Apart from stirring and driving the nurses crazy, his particular interests at work are ultrasounds and surgery (especially eye surgeries).
In his spare time Rob is involved in the horse racing industry and encouraging his 3 boys with their sporting pursuits. He enjoys running and bushwalking and has a much loved Kelpie named Sandy.
Despite having the handicap of being in the same year of vet school as Rob, David graduated from the University of Melbourne sometime last century. He initially worked as a large animal vet in Gippsland then found himself on the other side of the world working in the UK. He is at pains to point out that he is not "the English vet", he has just picked up an unfortunate accent during his 14 years living there. After working in a referral practice in Nottingham for 6 years, David returned to help out his friend Rob (again) and began working at the Animal Medical Centre in 2011. He enjoys soft tissue surgery and medicine and is often found using the ultrasound machines.
David is married to Claire and has 2 young boys and a Miniature Schnauzer called Tilly and a Jack Russell Cross called Charlie.
