Glenn is the Company Director and principal Veterinarian at The Bloomin’ Vet. He has 24 years of experience in both small and large animal practice. Coming from a cattle farming family in Central Queensland Glenn naturally found himself working in mixed practice. However, he has always enjoyed the challenges and variety presented by small animal medicine and surgery and he has spent time working in a couple of exclusively small animal clinics over the years as well as a small animal emergency hospital. Glenn has also acquired considerable experience as an equine vet having worked for some major equine stud practices in both Qld and NSW. Glenn has worked at a variety of locations around Australia including the Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Katherine and Darwin, Port Hedland, Dubbo, the Gold Coast and Beaudesert.
One of the most enjoyable things Glenn finds about being a veterinarian is seeing the difference in the quality of life experienced by some pets when chronic conditions are alleviated through a combination of medication, treatment and/or surgery. He also really enjoys seeing children take an active interest in the care of their pets when they bring their pets in with mum and dad.
Glenn enjoys mountain biking and fishing (although never seems to find the time to indulge much in these passions!), training and coaching Crossfit at CrossFit Flourish in Jimboomba, as well as has a keen interest in his Paint and Quarter Horses that he breeds in conjunction with his wife Belinda.
As well as horses Glenn also has two pet Dalmatian dogs Eeppoonnee (Ep) and Stoick and a scruffy Jack Russell Terrier Hiccup and 2 inside cats – a Russian Blue Uri and a Burmese Kachin. The menagerie is completed by several cows, a dozen sheep, and Light Sussex and Spotted Hamberg Chickens.
