Project Description

Dr Gordon Heslop


Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine. Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. B.Vet.Med.,M.R.C.V.S.

Gordon qualified as vet in England. After five years in James Herriot style practice, he migrated to Australia and settled in the Hills area. He believes that migration was one of the best decisions of his life. Recognizing that it was not possible to stay on top of both large and small animal veterinary work, Gordon opted to concentrate on small animal medicine and surgery. He has a particular interest in surgery and preventative medicine.

Gordon has been a vet for over 32 years, and happily embraces every day at work and all the new challenges that each day brings. He realises that the care of our patients extends to their owners, and endeavours to make sure that both the pet and owner benefit from all that he does. Gordon loves explaining what is wrong with his patients to you their owners in easy to understand language, using an array of models, sketches and metaphors.

The happiness of the hospitals and the staff is paramount, and Gordon fosters a friendly family atmosphere where the staff are all motivated, our wonderful clients are all welcome, and our patients receive the very best care.

Away from the practice, Gordon is never happier than when at home with his wife Helen surrounded by their menagerie of dogs, cats, ponies, alpacas and ducks while he landscapes their garden. They are also avid travelers, preferring to immerse themselves in traditional accommodation and local culture, happily recording their adventures with a keen photographic eye. Sailing – yes please, when I have the time!
