The Salisbury Park Vet Team
Dr Trevor Rickman
Dr Rickman started his career in 1975 in a small animal, horse and cattle vet practice before accepting an appointment as Head Surgeon of the RSPCA Animal Hospital in Perth. Since joining Vets4Pets in 1978, he has developed further expertise in feline and canine cardiology, as well as a special interest in caged birds, aquarium fish, turtles and other non-venomous reptiles.
Trevor is known to enjoy a challenge, which means the Salisbury Park waiting room is often filled with unusual cases. Patients can include a tropical fish with a skin complaint, a turtle with a damaged shell, a bird with a broken wing or a python with a sore throat.
Outside work Trevor has engaged in research projects for SA Fisheries, enjoys following the Crows and has a keen interest in classic cars and motorcycles. He is also a regular steward and show judge of Aquarium fish at the Royal Adelaide Show.
