Highly skilled and expienced team of vets offering the
best quality treatment and care
Dr. Chris Gales BSc BVMS
Chris set up Belvoir Equine Hospital in 2001. Prior to that, he had been in solely equine practice since graduating from Murdoch Univeristy.
Invaluable experience has been gained as an FEI vet, racetrack and reproduction vet.
What Chris really enjoys now is being part of a fabulous team including a specialist nursing staff and associate vets covering ophthalmology, dentistry and reproduction.
Outside of Belvoir Equine Hospital, Chris, along with his wife Andrea, runs Gervase Park Stud – a boutique thoroughbred stud that consistently finishes amongst the top end of vendors at the Magic Millions Sales.
With three teenage daughters heavily involved in eventing, it has given Chris a very good insight into the problems faced by horse owners and what it’s like to be on the other side of the fence.
Living on the property that encompasses both Belvoir Equine Hospital and Gervase Park Stud, Chris certainly feels he has the best of both worlds and looks forward to developing Belvoir Equine Hospital into a leading surgical referral center, high performance and reproduction center..
All of this has been made possible by being part of an amazing team!
