Peter Crawford
Veterinarian

90% of our work is Dairy Cow Related, with a particular interest in Dairy Cow Reproductive performance and health on Dairy Farms. I also have a strong and vested interest in Sheep and Beef Vetting and Farming practices.I hail from Cannington in South Canterbury, and have eventually returned here after my stint overseas. My lovely wife Cinthia and I were married in 2010 and we have a Labrador named George and a cat Freddy.
I worked at Oamaru Vet Services as a Mixed animal Vet for 3 years, 1 year in Victoria Australia as a Mixed Dairy Vet, 2 years in England as a Mixed Veterinarian and started work in September 2008 in Timaru.
My Interests outside of work include Rugby, Long distance running and Golf. I have recently retired from B’s rugby and now playing C’s Soccer.  Consequently I do not have any serious ambitions on making the 2014 All Whites World Cup Squad!

Rob Dunbar
Director/Veterinarian

Rob is a Massey University Graduate (1983) who after graduation enjoyed his first few years as a vet based in picturesque Wanaka, where he developed an affinity for the high country and deer farming. To further his experience Rob then worked as a veterinary locum throughout the UK in many varied and interesting jobs dealing with the range of animals the UK experience brings including monkeys and snakes. The lure of NZ brought him home and Rob has been based in Ashburton since the late 1980’s predominantly working with production animals (sheep/deer/beef) and no snakes.   He is actively involved in the Deer Industry as an auditor for the NVSB as well as acting as a TB tester trainer/assessor for the NQVS.  Outside of work Rob lives on a lifestyle property in Tai Tapu with his wife Sarita and two girls. Having no musical ability, and being too old to play rugby Rob enjoys the family time and shares a passion for travel with his wife.

Veterinarian

Tim has been a member of the Waipa team since making his debut, fresh from university, at the beginning of 2012. Tim grew up on the Kapiti Coast, and then made the move to the bright lights of Palmerston North for the next 5 years, before completing his migration north, to the even brighter lights of the Waipa district. Tim is involved in all aspects of vet practice, with his main interest lying in production animal medicine. Outside of work, despite being a long suffering Hurricanes fan, Tim enjoys all sports, particularly rugby and cricket, along with more social sports including golf, squash, snowboarding, wakeboarding and tennis.
