Dr David Stasiuk BVSc MRCVS MBA
David grew up in Melbourne surrounded by usual and unusual pets. His compassion and empathy for animals compelled him to complete his Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Melbourne in 1999. David started practising as a mixed animal vet in South-Eastern Victoria caring for all species of animal including horses, cattle, alpaca, and domestic small animals. In 2000 David completed a 12 month post-graduate course in Internal Medicine with the University of Sydney.
As time passed, Davids interest consolidated and he became more focused on small animals, cats and dogs. In 2001 David travelled to the UK and worked with international veterinarians in several well established veterinary hospitals. He was very impressed with their level of care and service and found himself advancing his knowledge in dog, cat, and rabbit medicine and surgery. During this time David became a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
Since returning to Australia, David has worked with several small animal clinics in Melbourne and completed a post-graduate degree in Master of Business Administration (MBA) with Monash University (graduating in 2006). David spent the last 4 years as a consultant for the largest veterinary hospital in the southern hemisphere, Lort Smith Animal Hospital (North Melbourne). Here the immense workload and variety of cases, from across Victoria, fed his academic knowledge and advanced his technical skills. In February 2010 David joined his friend, Dr David Wilson, and purchased Cheltenham Veterinary Clinic from Drs Chris Roach & Helen Apted.
David is married to Anna and they have 2 adorable girls, Maya and Olivia. They live with four pets including two dogs, Ali and Yoshi, and two Guinea Pigs, Puddles and Patch. David enjoys travelling, reading, and endurance sports.
Dr David Wilson BVSc MRCVS CMAVA
David grew up on a farm in the rural community of Deniliquin, New South Wales. It was here, surrounded by all types of large and small animals, that Davids interest in animals and their well-being began. He had many pets to care for, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, budgies, lambs, calves and horses. This led to David following his passion of working with animals by completing a Bachelor of Veterinary Science at The University of Melbourne in 1999.
David initially worked in mixed practice in Trafalgar (Gippsland, Victoria) before travelling overseas to the United Kingdom, where he worked in many practices in England and Northern Ireland. Working alongside veterinarians from all over the world he was able to gain invaluable experience in all types of small animal medicine and surgery. While working overseas David also became a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
On his return to Australia David worked in Sandringham and during this time he successfully completed a 12-month post-graduate course in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. In February 2010 David joined his friend and colleague, David Stasiuk, in becoming the new owners of Cheltenham Veterinary Clinic. In that same year, through Davids dedication to continuing education, he attained the status of Chartered Member of the Australian Veterinary Association (www.ava.com.au).
David lives with his lovely wife, Jo, their new beautiful baby daughter, Sophie, and beloved whippet, Winnie. He enjoys spending time with his family, cinema, photography, tennis and keeping fit.
