Tony & Hugo Oct2019.jpg

Dr Tony Atyeo

Practice Owner / Principal Veterinarian

Tony completed his Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney in 1972 then came to work at a little vet clinic in Gawler owned by Dr Bruce Eastick.

Now, with over 45 years of experience caring for your furry, feathered, scaled or tailed family members, Tony is the owner and Principal Veterinarian of that little clinic – Gawler Veterinary Services.

Tony has mentored students and graduates from all the Australian and New Zealand vet schools, and helped many new veterinarians get their start in the industry.

Tony lives in Willaston with his new puppy Gus and a pandemonium of rescued parrots.


Dr Rachel Kelson


Dr Rachel is one of our newest Vets to join the GVS Family. Pictured, is her 12-year-old boy, Bandit. Dr Rachel lives at home with her husband, Bandit, her sweet cat Lysander and 3 chickens!


Outside if work she loves gardening, cycling and pottery. 


Dr Clare Kibble


You can’t get much more local than Dr Clare Kibble.

A home-grown vet that grew up in Gawler and completed her degrees in Veterinary Bioscience (2013) and Veterinary Medicine (2017) at the University of Adelaide, Roseworthy Campus, Dr Clare is a testament to the quality of veterinary education in Australia.

Here at GVS we’ve watched Dr Clare’s transition from wide-eyed graduate to seasoned veterinarian happen at a rapid pace, as her love of learning has seen her develop her surgical skills and embrace a focus on preventative medicine that helps maintain your pets’ quality of life.

When not caring for your furry family, Clare  loves to take her constant companion – black Labrador Rosie – to the local dog park or on long neighbourhood-discovering walks. as well as crocheting cute little critters!

While spending much of her time at the Gawler clinic, Dr Clare works across all three of our clinics.


Dr James Robinson


Dr James, one of our newest Veterinarians to join the team lives local with his partner and two cats, Percy and Venus. 

Dr James previously studied aquaculture in Tasmania for two years before completing a bachelor of science at the University of Ballarat. 

When James isn't in clinic, you find him playing mixed netball on the 'GVS' team or locked away playing his computer games.
