Project Description

Dr. Christopher Swanepoel

Hospital Director

Chris moved to the central coast from South Africa in 2018 to take up the role of Hospital Director at Coast Animal Health.

Chris obtained his veterinary degree in 2007 at Onderstepoort in South Africa and worked in a variety of small animal practices including a 24-hour referral centre. He also spent six years working for a welfare organisation caring for the pets of indigent families. Chris enjoys all aspects of his job and has a special interest in surgery. Chris lives with his wife, Tamsen, and their sons, Finn and Benjamin. Sammy, his border collie cross, and Matilda, the cat, are also very much part of the family. They are both rescues and made the long journey from South Africa to Australia with the family. Chris loves hiking and is enjoying exploring all the beautiful trails on the central coast.
