Dr Justin Daniel
Veterinarian (BSc BVMS)
Justin grew up on a rural property in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. It was probably here that Justin developed his great love of animals as the property maintained a large number of pets and stock including dogs, cats, horses, sheep, cattle, pigs, chickens and a string of rehabilitated birds.
Justin studied Veterinary Science at Murdoch University in Perth, which is where he and his wife Linden met as Veterinary students.
Justin graduated from University in 1998 and spent his first few years in a mixed animal practice in the Clare Valley of South Australia. As well as treating companion animals, this practice serviced pigs, sheep and cattle farms as well as a number of 'stud' properties including thoroughbred, standard bred, riding pony, alpaca and merino breeding facilities.
Linden and Justin were married in 2002 then went on a 'working honeymoon' working in several practices in England for a 12 month period. Their time in the United Kingdom certainly broadened their experience in the veterinary profession.
Since returning to Australia, Justin worked in a busy companion animal hospital in Canberra, then spent another year in a mixed animal practice before moving to the beautiful South Coast in 2006.
Justin and Linden have had 3 boys since moving into the area and now have their own little hobby farm with sheep, alpacas, 3 horses and 2 dogs to keep their family company.
Justin enjoys all aspects of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery attending to companion animals, horses and farm animals in his working days.
In his time away from work Justin enjoys water sports, camping and bushwalking with his family, horse riding and motorbike riding.
