Doug Fountain
Doug Fountain

Born and bred in Scotland, with both parents as vets, Doug graduated from Glasgow University Vet School in 1994. After working in mixed practice in the English Midlands for 2 years, he had his first taste of Australia in 1996 working for a year as a locum vet.

He then worked for 2 ½ years in equine practice in the London outskirts, before returning to Australia in 2000 to join the HEVC team.

The majority of Doug’s work is with the performance horse, with particular interests in lameness investigation and artificial breeding work.

Outside work Doug spends time with his wife Robbie, daughter Ava, son Max.  He also enjoys scuba diving, snowboarding and racing his motorbikes, whether that be on bitumen or dirt!
