Our Team - Meet The Vets and/ or their Pets at The Holland Park and Carina Vet Clinics

Dr Peter Kitchen - B.V.Sc

Experience - 37 years
 Hi! I graduated at the U Of Qld in 1977 and then worked in a few practices in southern Qld. In 1980 I travelled to England and spent 18 months working in a small animal practice in Essex. I gained alot of experience working in this busy practice and it was very rewarding. I returned home in late 1981 and found a position at the Holland Park Vet Clinic where I have remained ever since. I currently spend time at both the Holland Park & Carina Vet Clinics and I always strive to provide personal and committed service to all the pets that come into my care. 

 This little guy on the right is our family pet , Lief. He is a lively Jack Russell Terrier who is about 1 year old in this photo.
