Meet the Equine Team

Dr Douglas Black BVMS, MACVSc

Douglas graduated from Glasgow University Veterinary School in 1983.
He spent his first two years in mixed practice in North Yorkshire, then after six months locum work around London in 1985, he then spent 12 months in equine practice in Eastern Australia. Doug crossed the ditch in 1986 to join the Hamilton Veterinary Services team where he has practiced since. He became a partner in 1992, and shortly after completed his exams for membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists. Doug has been a member of the NZB Endoscopy Panel since its inception in the early 1990s and has served two terms on the NZEVA. His professional interests include poor performance in young racing thoroughbreds, as part of generalised track work, as well as breeding and yearling sales work.
Outside of his professional life he enjoys travel, golf, fine food and wine ( who doesn't ?!)
