Anthony Bennett is a veterinarian and the star of Village Vets Australia on The LifeStyle Channel. Anthony graduated from Sydney University in 2004 with first class honours. His first job was at the Berry Vet Clinic, working for Geoff Scarlett and Geoff Manning, which enabled him to live on the family farm in Nowra. Anthony gravitated towards the dairy cattle and small animal medicine and surgery aspects of the clinic. In 2005 Anthony sat and passed The Australian Cattle Association pregnancy testing exam. Soon after he became accredited with Animal Health Australia to manage cattle, sheep, goat and alpaca herds in their respective Johnes market assurance programs. Anthony is registered to manage sheep herds for ovine Brucellosis and is also an AQIS accredited vet for live animal export.
Taking a share in the practice in 2008 with now-retired veterinarian Dr Geoff Manning, he today co-owns and operates the practice with his best friend James Carroll. They opened a third practice, All Creatures Clinic, in the coastal area of Shoalhaven Heads last year. Currently President of the Shoalhaven branch of the Australian Veterinary society and honorary vet at the Berry Show, Anthony is also on the Dairy Panel for the Royal Easter Show. Anthony is engaged to successful equestrian showjumper, Sidney Roberts.
