Dr Michael Chia  BVMS BSc(Vet) BSc(Hons)

Hamilton Hill Vet Dr Michael has lived in Spearwood since the good ol' 90s but grew up in a semi-rural part of Singapore surrounded by a menagerie of livestock and pets (including insects and spiders). His formative years were spent at the National University of Singapore (NUS) pursuing an honours degree in zoology while researching the effects of tropical fish anaesthesia.

     Dr Mike qualified as a vet in 2001 from Murdoch University and has worked in various small animal practices in Perth. He also returned to Murdoch University to work as an emergency vet clinician and vet registrar for 4 years, helping to train the next generation of vet students.

     He has completed post-graduate training courses on the surgical repair of cranial cruciate ligament rupture, medial patella luxation correction, use of locking plates and the AOVet course on advanced techniques in fracture management. He is also the co-author of the surgery chapter in a pet fish medicine textbook and has submitted a novel canine case report that was accepted for peer-reviewed publication in the international Journal of Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care (JVECC).

     Apart from staring at his aquarium with aquatic plants, Michael also tries to read army story books, watch sci-fi / fantasy shows and play the bass.
