Tony was brought up by the coast in Devon, England and went to Bristol Veterinary school, graduating in 1992. After spells working on Dartmoor, and in Manchester and London, he first came to Hong Kong in 1997, working for Victoria Vet Clinic in Tuen Mun. Returning to London in 1999, he realised that Hong Kong was in his blood, returned in 2000 and has lived and worked here ever since.
After six years in private practice in Mid-Levels, Tony took up the dual tasks of Senior Veterinary Surgeon and Head Surgeon at the SPCA, positions he held for four years before deciding to set up Acorn Veterinary Hospital.
Tony is married to Dr Annabel Sutch, a vet currently at the SPCA, and they share their home with three cats, Mr Wong, Desmond and Slug, and their beloved Whippet Biggles.
