Dr. Andrew Moffatt


I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. At the age of five, I told my mother, with a firm commitment, that I wanted to be an “animal doctor”. Some 20 years later I graduated with a degree in Veterinary Science from Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand in 2006.

I began my veterinary career at Cliffe Veterinary Group in East Sussex, England. I then made the move to London and I took on the role of Clinical Director at Chadwell Heath Veterinary Practice. I then joined The Village Veterinary Group (CVS) as Clinical Director, managing four busy hospitals and 55 staff. Whilst living in London, I completed an Executive MBA at Cass Business School.

In between these permanent positions I have worked in another 20 hospitals for varying lengths of time.

I made the move to California in the fall of 2011 and live in San Francisco with my black and white cat Monstey. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, fly-fishing, cycling, and diving.

I try to offer my clients and their pets health care advice that is honest, ethical, and compassionate. I have advanced skills in surgery (both soft tissue and orthopedics), imaging (ultrasound, radiology, and endoscopy), dentistry, oncology, and exotic patient care, seeing species such as rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles, pigs, goats, and even fish!
