Dr. Michael Archinal
BVSc, IVAS(Cert), PTC(Hons)

Michael is a Senior Small Animal Partner in the practice. He graduated from Sydney University in 1987 and after five years in country practice, started the Bateman's Bay Veterinary Hospital.

After five years of very successful practice, was recruited as the Director of Canberra Vet Hospital that he managed for 17 years and joined the Kippax team in 2006. Michael is an internationally qualified acupuncturist having been awarded an IVAS Diploma and has undertaken post-graduate training in dermatology and animal behavior. He is a sought-after lecturer internationally, having lectured in Japan and the US on the human-animal bond.

He has also had a very successful book published “Animal Wisdom” on the subject. He is married to Jodie, and has three sons, a Labrador named Taylor and catcalled Brad. How he combines family life, football refereeing, a single digit golf handicap, commitments in his local church, a television, radio and print career and veterinary practice remain one of the great secrets. Michael is currently studying for his MACVS in Pharmacology.

You can catch Michael on the Nine Network, every second Saturday on ABC radio, or in a regular column in a 'Dog's Life' magazine.
