Ben graduated from the University of Queensland with First Class Honours in Veterinary Science in 2009. He launched his veterinary career at a large mixed practice in Shepparton, North-East Victoria, where he was a jack-of-all-trades veterinarian and gained extensive experience in all facets of small and large animal medicine and surgery.
After seven years in practice, Ben wanted a new challenge and to diversify, and became a Technical Services Veterinarian at two large animal pharmaceutical businesses (Merial and Boehringer-Ingelheim). Following his keen passion for nutrition and education, Ben joined the Royal Canin team in January 2018. On top of this, he continues to work in general practice most weekends in Shepparton.
