Veterinary Surgeons & Physicians

Dr. Ketan Jivanjee (BSc, BVSc, MRCVS)

Ketan graduated Bachelor of Veterinary Science from the University of Pretoria, Onderstepoort, South Africa. Prior to that, he completed Bachelor of Science with majors in Biochemistry and Microbiology from La Trobe University, Bundoora.

Ketan is a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, United Kingdom. In 2003, a passion for surgery led him to complete a one year post graduate course in Small Animal Surgery conducted by the University of Sydney.

Ketan has focused on small animal practice since graduation. He spent three years in a busy small animal hospital in Albury/Wodonga honing his medical and surgical skills. His time in Albury/Wodonga was undoubtedly the most fruitful and rewarding of his professional career. A further three years were spent treating companions in an outer eastern suburb of Melbourne prior to taking the reins at Carnegie Veterinary Clinic. He enjoys the rigours, challenges and diversity that general practice has to offer.

He is passionate about continuing veterinary education and ongoing learning. All members of the Carnegie Veterinary Clinic Team partake in continuing professional development to further enhance their skills and ultimately provide better service to clients and better outcomes to patients.

Out of the clinic, Ketan takes an avid interest in motor sports.
