Meet Dr. Shibly!

Dr Shibly is a Senior Veterinary Surgeon, who has been in practice for 17 years, having worked in general, referral and emergency settings.  

Dr Shibly is Australian-born but grew up in South Africa on farmland with his family and two dogs (a German Shepherd and a Pug).


After being exposed to so many different types of animals, including a lot of wildlife, Shibly decided that he wanted to dedicate his life to looking after them and their owners. He loves putting a smile on owners’ faces and knowing that he can alleviate some of the concerns they have about their furry family.


Shibly gained his Bachelor of Veterinary Science with Honours at University of Queensland. Shibly then spent four years working and travelling through Southern Africa and the UK, mainly looking after wildlife and pocket pets. It was at this point that he realised his passion for companion animals, and the bond between pets and their owners. 


Dr Shibly is currently focused on helping Pet Parents become Proactive with their pet's care, so that everyone in the household can enjoy happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. 

Every school holiday Dr Shibly hosts an interactive workshop for kids in Logan teaching them how to be Junior Vets.
