Dr. Scott Linnane BVSc (Hons I)
Veterinary Surgeon and Consultant
I enjoy being a general practitioner as it gives me variety and a great overview of medicine, surgery and my patients overall health. Working on wildlife is definitely a joy and what better place to do that than in Tasmania.
Why I became a vet
I want to the help the animals and enjoy helping people as well. Becoming a vet fills both of these niches.
I like the predators! Birds of prey and sharks are just magnificent.
I have two dogs, PJ (Border collie) and Dexter (Whippet). I feel a little sorry for poor Dexter because the relationship between the two is a little one sided. Despite Dexter’s efforts, PJ often picks the ball to play with!
Bird watching and wildlife photography. A good game of hockey keeps me fit and healthy.
What do you like about working at Hobart Community Veterinary Hospital
It’s a friendly and caring group of people who are all working towards providing a high level of patient care. That to me creates a rewarding and stimulating workplace.
