OUR HISTORY

OLDVetPractice

North Hobart Veterinary Hospital was established in the 1950’s by Drs David Brown and Graham Gledhill in the building on Tasma Street. Dr Geoff Baxter joined the team in December, 1969 and Dr Don Pattullo joined in 1973, which is when they built the Rosny Park practice at 58 Bligh Street. Dr Maree Richards came to the hospital in 1974.

After the Tasman Bridge collapse in 1975, the Eastern Shore Practice became markedly busier, and in 1978 they divided the practice in two, with Maree and Geoff staying in North Hobart and the others taking over the Eastern Shore practice.

During the 1970’s horses and cattle made up a large part of the practice but throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s there was a move to seeing mainly companion animals. In the late 80’s the practice commenced limited use of 273 Elizabeth Street until 1991 when a renovation combined the two buildings.
