“The best thing is seeing them go home wagging their tail while their owners smile from ear to ear” ~ Dr John Ley

John is an active member of the local community, leading the local Scout group with his boys and walking the sunny streets with his wife, little girl and dogs Cookie and Henry (two Brittany Spaniels who are absolutely besotted with each other). John is a footy fanatic and loves surfing and the beach almost as much as his four-legged friends.

John is a partner at the Moorabbin Veterinary Hospital.
