Dr David Margary has been the owner and principal Veterinarian at the Forest Hill Veterinary Hospital for the last 27 years.

He was born in England and moved to Australia with his family in 1969. David grew up in Glen Waverley & went to school at Mount View primary school & then Glen Waverley High School. He graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1986 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science with honours.

David has worked his entire career in large, veterinary practices in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, more specifically Brandon Park Veterinary Hospital & the Monash Veterinary Clinic. The large case load at these practices has enabled David to build extensive experience as a small animal general practitioner. Although David enjoys all aspects of small animal veterinary practice, his areas of expertise & passion include surgery, lameness diagnosis, oncology & reproduction.

David thoroughly enjoys the relationships he has built with many long term clients and their pets at the Forest Hill Veterinary Hospital. It is these relationships & the immense satisfaction that comes with helping to improve the quality of life of his patients that he loves most about being a vet!

When David is not at the practice his spare time is fully occupied with his family – his wife Deirdre & his three children, James, Thomas & Ruby.

His passions outside of veterinary practice are surfing, fishing, scuba diving & cheering on the Richmond Tigers!
