Dr Karin Davids
Karin is the head surgeon at Southern Animal Health and Melbourne Bulldog Clinic, experienced in many advanced surgeries including difficult lameness, cancers, abdominal and thoracic surgery and Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Surgery (BOAS).
Dr Nick Hunton
Recruited in 2018 for his experience and advanced surgical skills including BOAS airway correction, orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery, Nick has added to Southern Animal Health and Melbourne Bulldog Clinic’s advanced surgery team, keeping many surgeries in house that other clinics would send to specialists.
An avid Collingwood and Liverpool fan (which the clinic does hold against him!), with prowess at golf and skiing that almost rivals his passion and ability for surgery, Nick is loved by his clients for his gentle but advanced approach to complicated cases.
Dr Tracy Tang
Tracy was recruited from The Lort Smith Animal Hospital, being one of the head surgeons there for many years. Tracy attained her membership of the Australian and New Zealand college of veterinary Scientists in small animal surgery in 2016, and is employed as a surgeon only at Southern Animal Health and Melbourne Bulldog Clinic.
Tracy has a particular interest in BOAS surgery, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, with particular expertise and interest in fracture repair.
Along with Dr Karin Davids, Tracy empowers Southern Animal Health and Melbourne Bulldog Clinic with two advanced surgeons for those cases general practice often refers to specialists.
