Welcome to Caloundra Vet!
Dr Colin Tedman, BVSC - Senior Veterinarian - Practice Owner - The Vet with the Jaguar Cars!
Originally from Erith in the UK, Colin graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London back in 1981. His early days of Veterinary experiences saw him in England and Wales, whereby his tales saw him one day lambing, or another performing orthopaedic surgery in the Clinic. Wanting a "sea change" from the harsh Welsh climate, saw Colin spend his next years as a Vet in Fiji - snowy highlands in Wales, to sunny beaches in Suva! His journey then took him to Australia, whereby he was successful as a practising Vet in Taree and Cairns before moving to Caloundra in the 1990's.
Caloundra Vet Surgery, officially started business in North Street in Caloundra in 1996 and is one of the longest standing "original owner" and practising Vets in the area. In 2000, due to expansion requirements, saw the Clinic move to current premises at Park Place, in Caloundra.
Colin has many years of experience in all facets of veterinary medicine and treats now small animals only e.g. dogs, cats, pocket pets e.g. guinea pigs, rodents and birds. He has a caring nature for all his clientele and ensures that all animals in his care, are provided with professional and quality care. This is measurable by the number of loyal clientele Caloundra Vet has and many stories can be told of Colin looking after a loved pet from when they were a pup and now seeing them into their twilight years!
All of our diagnostic, preventative and surgical treatment is provided by qualified vets who have had more than 20+ years current hands on industry experience.
