> Ian Leadbetter
Ian has been working as a veterinarian for over 30 years and still enjoys the variety and challenges the job brings.
Ian started his career in the King Country working in a mixed farm practice covering dairy, beef and sheep. After the mandatory OE he settled with his family in Dannevirke and slowly took on more of the companion and farm dog aspects of the work as the dynamics of the practice changed.
After another brief overseas jaunt Ian settled in Hawkes Bay and worked in a practice in Napier, before joining our companion animal team in Hastings in 2014.
In his spare time Ian is often chasing fish around the sea, lakes and rivers of New Zealand with varying success.
