Meet Dr. Josh
Dr Joshua Llinas BVSc (Hons), MVS, BS (Hons), ARAV, UPAV
Dr. Josh moved to Australia in 1999 after completing a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. Here, he completed his Veterinary Science degree with honours at the University of Queensland and a Masters of Clinical Medicine and Surgery through Murdoch University. Throughout his career there has been a focus on reptile and amphibian medicine. This passion stemmed from years of herping, working with and keeping many these unique animals (including green iguanas, basilisks, anoles, leopard geckos, king snakes, rat snakes, pythons, turtles, tree frogs and yes, cane toads. This resulted in an understanding of joys, the pitfalls of working with herps and a plan to eventually work exclusively with these animals.
From Dr. Josh – “It has been a dream of mine to run a veterinary practice that offers the highest quality medicine and surgery with a focus on the specific requirements needed for reptiles and amphibians. Over the years, I have received strong support from my family, friends, colleagues and clients to make this possible. This is an area where we are continuously growing and improving based on the latest research, continued education and communication with experts in the field. Thank you to everyone who has been part of herpVet coming to fruition.”
