Dr. Pete is getting the snip! No, it’s not what you think…
It’s time for it to go!
For the last four years and after the news of a dear friend’s cancer diagnosis, it got Pete thinking about something that he could do with his thick mop of hair. So he has let it grow – much to the amusement of family and friends with the view to donate for a worthy cause, and what could be more fitting than Vets Beyond Borders. He also wanted to donate his hair to people who have lost theirs through cancer or Alopecia.
Vets Beyond Borders (VBB) is an Australian animal charity established in 2003 which helps to improve the lives of animals and humans in developing communities around the world. Through its VetMatch and VetTrain programs, VBB deploys volunteer veterinarians, veterinary nurses and other animal welfare workers across the globe to deliver animal health and education programs where they are desperately needed. In Australia, VBB’s AVERT (Australian Veterinary Emergency Response Team) program has volunteers standing ready to deliver prompt treatment to animals affected by natural disaster or outbreak of exotic disease.

When is it going to happen?
The big chop will occur on Thursday 9th of May 2019 at time 3.00pm Melbourne time (1.00pm WA time), at the annual Australian Veterinary Association conference in Perth. There will be a live stream of the snip happening on the Belgrave South Veterinary Clinic social media pages for our followers tuning in at home.
