Our Staff


Bill Taylor

Veterinarian - BVSc.

Bill graduated in 1997 from Sydney University and entered mixed practice in Gerringong. He worked there for two years before moving to the UK to strengthen his small animal skills. After spending 4 years abroad the great Downunder beckoned Bill back to Canberra where he worked at Inner South vets for 4 years; adding skills in exotic animal and bird medicine to his repertoire. Following this, Bill joined Queanbeyan Vet Hospital in 2009 and in 2012 he took on Jerrabomberra Veterinary Hospital, constantly improving and expanding both practices. Bill has undertaken further studies in exotic species, surgery and behavioural medicine to ensure we are up to date with the latest advances in veterinary medicine. Away from work Bill relishes spending time with his wife Alison (a veterinarian at Kippax) and his two young boys Jack and Hugh. When Bill has a chance he likes to head down to the coast to play beach cricket with his boys, take his poodle Poky for a run, and to relax!
