Angus grew up in southern NSW on a beef cattle property and after graduation in 1984 anticipated a career working in rural practice. He worked initially in the South East of South Australia from 1984-1986 and then in the Adelaide Hills with some locum work in the city at a couple of companion animal practices including the Animal Emergency Centre during 1987.
He then spent 18 months working and travelling overseas. Most of Angus’ working experiences in the United Kingdom were remarkably similar to “All Creatures Great and Small” – a true mixture of rural and city practice!! Angus returned to Adelaide during 1989 and worked in a busy city practice until he opened the Stephen Terrace Veterinary Clinic in August 1992. The practice has grown steadily in that time. Angus and his team have worked through a series of renovations as the practice has expanded. This has been a very rewarding experience for everybody.
Outside work Angus is busy with his two sons Oliver and Hugo and when time allows follows his passion of snow skiing and water sports. Oliver has returned to Adelaide to attend University, while Hugo lives in Sydney so Angus still commutes there regularly. Angus tries to keep fit at the gym and enjoys regular walking. His City to Bay days appear to be over!
