Dr Lachlan Kesteven



Dr Lachlan Kesteven has had a fascination with pets, animals and the sciences from a young age. His first foray into tertiary studies was a mixture of business and law but he soon realised his true passions lay elsewhere.

Lachlan proceeded with a working holiday in the UK, USA, Canada and Europe for the next two years. He returned to Australia with Veterinary Science set firmly in his sights and he graduated from James Cook University in 2011. His first position was in Proserpine (the Whitsundays) at a mixed practice with opportunity to see diverse and challenging cases while living in a great part of the world. He was also a member of the Auxiliary Fire Fighter Brigade in Proserpine expanding his practical knowledge and skill sets.

Lachlan enjoys spending his time off snowboarding, diving, swimming, travelling and eating good food with good company.
