– 1950 –Bondi Veterinary Hospital was established in Sydney's eastern suburbs in the 1950's and was the first veterinary hospital in the area.
– 1970 - 1980 –Originally the hospital was located in Hastings Parade but moved to the present site in the early 1970's. Dr Keith Baker, the original owner, was with the practice until the late 1980's when Dr Paul Logan took over.
– 1980 - now –Different vets have come and gone since then but Paul has been ever present looking after generations of families' pets. After working in the practice for 4 years Dr David Butchart became a co-owner in late 2009.
Bondi Veterinary Hospital is registered by the Veterinary Practitioners Board of NSW and is a licensed class A hospital. We are approved to perform all veterinary procedures on small animals at the practice.
MEET THE TEAM
Dr Paul Logan
Bondi Vet Founder
Paul graduated from University with honours more years ago than he wishes to admit before spending 3 years in mixed animal practice in the Hunter Valley and North Queensland. The mandatory couple of years in the UK followed before the sun, sand and surf of Bondi lured him home. Paul has owned the practice for over 20 years and has cared for many of your pets (and seen your kids grow up!). Paul's veterinary interests include orthopaedic surgery and dermatology. Paul lives locally with his wife, 3 daughters, and their 2 cats Ivy and Indi. Outside work Paul enjoys surfing and most water sports.
Dr Kate Adams

Originally hailing from Canberra, Kate graduated from Murdoch University in Perth in 2007. Kate has worked in WA, ACT and in Sydney across a diverse mix of practices. Kate reports to her Golden Retriever and her snuggly 17 year old cat. Kate has a passion for feline medicine but equally loves greeting all of the dogs that visit the practice!
Dr david butchart
As a kid David wanted to do two things when he grew up – play cricket for Australia and be a vet. Clearly the cricket dream didn't quite go to plan! After graduating in 1995, David headed to England where he took up residence in the south of England in a mixed rural practice. After 4 years of loving the job but not loving the weather he headed home and began working in the eastern suburbs. After a couple of years of practice, David headed back to university to do an MBA. Post MBA David worked for a multi national pharmaceutical company in their Animal Health marketing department. David came back to practice at Bondi Vets in 2005 and became a partner towards the end of 2009. David's vet interests include ophthalmology, radiology and general medicine. Outside work David's interests include golf, cricket and to be honest most sports.
