> Mike Fitzgerald
Mike originally hails from Canterbury and began working with Vet Services in 2011 after graduating from Massey University. Mike won one of the original VSHB BVSc scholarships in his fourth year at Massey, back in 2009. He worked for three years in Waipukurau, where he established himself as a thorough clinician, before taking eighteen months off to do his OE. We were keen to have him back, so once he’d got the travel out of his system, he was welcomed back in late 2016.
Mike is a great allrounder but his area of special interest is horses. Mike is well known in the CHB horse scene in particular and is actively involved with our wider equine team throughout the practice area. He is also heavily involved in most areas of production animal work, which is a big part of our workload here.
In his spare time, Mike is an avid runner and outdoorsman, and is often caught dreaming of further intrepid adventures.
