Dr Srdan Savic

In January Srdan decided after being with our practice for 5 years since emigrating, it was time to experience his professional life in a new practice. This meant saying good bye to the friends he had made with staff and clients during his time with us.

After a short period Srdan realized the quality of service he was able to offer through Greensborough with our facility, equipment and support was something that he missed. By early March Srdan had returned to once again become part of our permanent team.

In 2008 we were looking to employ a new associate veterinarian. At this time there were not many suitable candidates available, so through the Australian Veterinary Association we advertised internationally. This is where Srdan became aware of our practice and applied for a position. It is quite daunting to interview an international future employee on the phone and offer the position to someone sight unseen. With his knowledge and experience we were hopeful he may fit into our team. As evidence shows this has been successful.

Srdan originally joined our staff at Easter in 2008 after emigrating from Croatia to Melbourne. He graduated from the University of Zagreb in Croatia in 2000 before working in Zagreb for 7 years. During this time he did military service working as a military veterinarian responsible for the care and treatment of 90 military dogs. In 2005 Srdan spent 3 months in Australia with various practices to gauge his interest and decided he wanted to immigrate. In December 2006 he passed the Australian National Veterinary Examination allowing him to practice in Australia. This is when he began planning his move.

In his spare time Srdan enjoys computers and cooking. His favourite past time is searching markets for the correct ingredients for his specialty of fish dishes. He also has a soft spot for Blue Heelers due to his connection back home. He is guaranteed to give each one a kiss on the lips!

So for those clients who were regulars of Dr.Savic’s he is now available at Greensborough again on a full time basis.
