Browns Plains Veterinary Surgery

Dr Nigel Thomas – Business Owner

Bachelor of Veterinary Science – University of Queensland

Read More About Dr Nigel
Dr Nigel graduated from the University of Queensland in 1991 and worked in Victoria, England and Saudi Arabia before returning to SE Queensland. Dr Nigel has been working in the local area for over 14 years and purchased Browns Plains Vet Surgery in 2013. Last year was a big year because Dr Nigel was also President of the Queensland Division of the Australian Veterinary Association which was a great privilege.

My real passion for veterinary science is helping clients celebrate the human-animal bond. I enjoy seeing clients with new puppies and kittens and continuing that relationship as the animals grow and mature. Helping both the client and pet through the good times and the bad times and taking time to discuss treatment options that are best for both pet and person. It is never a dull job and is truly much more then a job.

At home Dr Nigel has a lovely wife, 2 cheeky children, a sparky Miniature Schnauzer called Dougie, a sweet miniature dachshund puppy called Steve and 2 very patient cats.
