John grew up just around the corner in Brighton and has been working with Moorabbin Veterinary Hospital for over ten years. John has extensive experience in surgery and ultrasonography and a particular soft spot for cats and dogs.

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

John enjoys walking the sunny streets with his lovely wife and family, along with Cookie and Henry (two Brittany Spaniels who are absolutely besotted with each other). John is a Magpie footie fanatic and loves his tennis, surfing, bird watching, and bay swims with his brothers and sisters, almost as much as his four-legged friends.  His house is ruled by Dora the cat (of course).

John is a partner at the Moorabbin Veterinary Hospital.
