  • Dr Mark Carter BVSc

    Mark grew up on a wool and beef property near Barraba in northern New South Wales and was heavily involved with helping his parents with the animals on the farm which led him to choose studying Veterinary Science at Sydney University.

    After graduation and moving to Dubbo, Mark started work at Dubbo Veterinary Hospital and Macquarie Artificial Breeders in 1997. From the very beginning he has had a particular interest in reproductive technologies which has resulted in producing champion rams, bulls, dogs and bucks all over the world.

    As well as an interest in reproduction, Mark loves all facets of veterinary practice in a regional area and not only enjoys working with both pets and livestock but also having a chat with their owners.

    Since 2010 he has been the principal of both Dubbo Veterinary Hospital and Macquarie Artificial Breeders, and has had active roles within the Australian Veterinary Association including two years as Australian Sheep Veterinarians’ president.

    Mark through Dubbo Veterinary Hospital and Macquarie Artificial Breeders supports a range of community events in Dubbo including the Dubbo Show Society, Dubbo Greyhound Club, Working Dog trials, various stud cattle and sheep shows and sales, rehoming of stray animals from the Dubbo City Shelter, RSPCA as well as other community events.

    It is also well known he is a former player and staunch supporter of the Dubbo Kangaroos Rugby Club!

  • Dr Miguel Mervin Pajate DVM, MTVS

    Mervin was born in Cabamatuan City Nueva Ecija, Philippines. Whilst growing up in the Philippines Mervin was inspired to study veterinary science to become a “dog doctor” after witnessing the ravages of infectious disease such as parvovirus, distemper and rabies.

    He graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from De Lasalle-Araneta University and then spent 7 years in the poultry and swine industries. In 1999, he was awarded a scholarship from AUSAid to study in Australia. He did postgraduate work at James Cook University, North Queensland and earned a Masters in Tropical Veterinary Science.

    After another 6 years in the Philippines working in the agricultural sector and offering some small animal services at times as well, he returned to Australia and began the long road to gaining accreditation for his degree in Australia. After 5 years of studying hard at night whilst working and then managing a piggery during the day, he passed the Australian Exam for foreign Veterinarians.

    In 2014, Mervin joined the team at Dubbo Veterinary Hospital with a strong interest in small animal medicine and surgery. He is relishing the opportunity to finally become a “dog doctor” and he and his family love living in the city of Dubbo.

  • Dr Victoria Bartley BVSc

    Victoria graduated from The University of Sydney in 2013. We are very grateful that whilst training to become a vet, she was influenced by veterinarians that had spent a part of their career at Dubbo Veterinary Hospital, which inspired her to swap the beaches of Sydney for the bush in 2014.

    Victoria enjoys all facets of regional veterinary practice but has a particular interest in small animal surgery, obstetrics, and emergency medicine. Since starting at Dubbo Veterinary Hospital she has enjoyed many opportunities to be involved in small animal reproductive work at the clinic, in particular assisting whelping and performing Caesarean sections.

    Victoria is enjoying local life in Dubbo. She plays tennis competitions locally and is an active member of the Young Professionals Network. Victoria likes to paint in her spare time and often enters artwork in the Dubbo Show. She loves living so close to Taronga Western Plains Zoo and is a zoo friend and regular visitor. She has a soft spot for Kelpies and is getting ready to adopt the perfect kitten.
