Your Veterinarian

We're For Happy Pets

Dr. David Marchant BVSc PhD is the principal veterinarian of the practice. David was born and raised in Queensland and is a graduate and has a Doctorate from the University of Queensland. He was a partner in a mixed practice in Surrey, UK and has been the principal of several practices in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales before coming to The Ark. David's special interests include dermatology, weight control, and caring for our older pets. He lives on the Sunshine Coast with his wife Sue, who does the practice administration, and their Wolfhound X dogs Daisy and Ali who were rescued from shelters.

Raine van Rensburg our receptionist and veterinary nurse is currently  completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. She is a lover of all animals, especially little fluffy ones like her dog, Brandy. Raine also has a knack for sewing, and you'll find her hand-made dog bandanas for sale in the clinic. 

We look forward to being your family's vet who you can trust and get to know throughout your pets life.
