In January 1995 Shane began his vet career at the Raglan vet clinic working with a wide range of animals including cats, dogs, horses, cows, sheep and deer.
The small seaside town of Raglan with its relaxed and friendly atmosphere appealed to Shane and he decided to put down roots there. 24 years on Shane is still employed in the same practice and has become well respected in the township and surrounding rural district for his dedication to and compassion for the animals under his care. Shane remains a mixed practice veterinarian but has a particular interest in dogs and horses.
As well as a strong polo community the Raglan area provides Shane with exposure to many different equine disciplines including eventing, hunting, hacking and stock horses.
