St Clair Hayes BVSC



St Clair is the owner and principal Vet at the Boyne Tannum Veterinary Surgery.  St Clair as Veterinary Degree University of Pretoria in South Africa. He has over 32 years experience and brings a wealth of knowledge to the practice having worked in both Africa and Australia.

His first job was with the RSPCA in Cape Town where he operated on the many dogs and cats as part of a National program to prevent cruelty to neglected animals.  This gave him a broad range of skills due to the varied and interesting cases. He then moved to a busy coastal town where he joined a mixed practice as a partner.  Botswana was the next stop where he was exposed to larger animals and wildlife work and this is where he developed his expertise in the exotic field.

In 1995 the family moved to Australia and St Clair joined a practice in Katherine in the Northern Territory. The opportunity arose to move to Queensland and in late 1995 the family moved to the Gladstone Region.  Living on a small property in Benaraby he has a few hobby cattle, two ostriches, guinea fowl and devoted dogs, Busta, Ellie and Knox the family Golden Retrievers.
