Dr. Anthony Hollis
Dr. Anthony 出生於澳洲昆士蘭州，同年剛好是他父親修讀獸醫學的最後一年。他的父親﹑姐夫﹑表弟和侄子都是獸醫，而他的母親和妹妹都獸醫診所護士，可說是他注定會成為一位獸醫。理所當然地，他亦娶了一位獸醫。 Dr. Anthony 於1994年畢業於他父親母校，他的第一份工作是在澳洲農村地區執業為各種動物診症。在此期間，他從中學習到與客戶建立相互信任和尊重的重要性。在這鄉郊地方，客戶很多時會送農村風味早餐以對他的工作表示讚賞。某一個冬季的凌晨5點，安東尼幫助分娩出健康的小牛，除了獲得了客戶讚賞外，還有一頓農村風味早餐以示感激。
在澳洲做獸醫6年後，Dr. Anthony決定旅行。最終在阿布扎比擔任小型動物獸醫2年。 在那裏遇到的狀況絕對是層出不窮，甚至乎非常罕見 。從醫治斷腿的阿拉伯沙瞪羚到為貪玩的黑猩猩接種疫苗，這些都是緊張而興奮的體驗。 Dr. Anthony於2003年來到香港加入了當時剛有24小時診証的The Ark醫院。一年後， 他取得為著名的PAVC設立緊急醫療服務(ER)的機會。在接下來的15年中，Anthony博士在全東南亞最繁忙的診所之一中發展。 他現在加入CPPC，迎接新的挑戰，期望以他過去17年作為ER獸醫的經驗繼續為大家服務。
Dr. Anthony was born in Queensland Australia, while his father was in his final year of veterinary studies. His father, his brother-in-law, cousin and nephew are all vets. As well as his mother and sister being vet nurses. You could say being a vet, is in his blood. But just to be sure, he also married a vet.
After graduating in 1994 at the same Veterinary school his father graduated from, Dr Anthony’s first job was in a mixed practice in rural Australia. During this time, he learnt the value of developing that all important mutual trust and respect with the many varied clients he serviced. Plus, if you did a good job it often meant a free cooked country breakfast. Well-earned and appreciated after helping to deliver a healthy calf at 5 am on a winter morning.
After 6 years as a vet in Australia Dr Anthony decided to travel. Eventually taking a position in Abu Dhabi for 2 years as a small animal practitioner. Here the cases were definitely varied and sometimes unusual. From fixing the broken leg of an Arabian sand gazelle to trying to vaccinate a very cheeky chimpanzee, it was a very exciting and at times thrilling experience.
Dr. Anthony came to Hong Kong in 2003. Here he joined the Ark which had recently opened their 24 hr clinic. One year later the opportunity to develop an ER service at the famous PAVC was offered. For the next 15 years Dr Anthony developed his skills as an ER vet in what was one of the busiest clinics in SE Asia.
He now joins CPPC for a new challenge and looks forward to offering the same standards of service developed and given during his past 17 years in Hong Kong as an ER vet.
