Dr John Norris
BVSc (Hons), MANZCVSc, BAgrSc, CMAVA, CDec
Dr John was born in Albury, NSW. He grew up in southern Victoria amongst the racehorse community. He graduated from La Trobe University with his Agricultural Degree, but he aspired to becoming a Veterinarian. So he migrated north through The University of Sydney, gaining his Veterinary degree, to Sunny Queensland.
He worked at Kessel’s Road Veterinary Hospital and Creek Road Cat Surgery before purchasing Killarney Veterinary Surgery with his partner Dr Christine. At Killarney Dr John’s career encompassed both small and large animals. Cattle Breeding and Endurance Riding were his favourite pastimes. If he was not at the clinic he was on the farm.
In 2003 the family decided on a ‘Sea Change’ and established Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery.
Dr John became a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists – Feline Chapter and a Chartered Member of the Australian Veterinary Association.
Dr John’s special interests include cat medicine, dog medicine and dog reproduction (especially canine dystocia). He has his own breeding dogs – Golden Retrievers – who smile every time they see him.
Currently much of Dr John’s time is devoted to brachycephalic dogs (e.g. French Bulldogs, Pugs, British Bulldogs, Australian Bulldogs and Boston Terriers).
Dr John is an accredited export Veterinarian. He also enjoys breeding Burmese Cats.
