Emergency Veterinarian

Dr Jake Fountain

BVBiol BVSc (Hons I)

Jake comes to the Animal Referral Hospital from Charles Sturt University Wagga Wagga with a Bachelor of Veterinary Biology/Bachelor of Veterinary Science.

Jake also received first class honours for his research on the biosecurity and communication practices of NSW sheep producers. He has a keen interest in small animal emergency medicine, as well as small animal surgery and imaging. Jake also enjoys working with pocket pets and birds when he’s not spending time with his own cockatiel at home.

When he’s not at work, Jake keeps himself preoccupied with running. He is currently training for a half-marathon and where he takes the opportunity to soak up some well needed sun. When it’s raining, he keeps himself busy with his bass guitar, which he has enjoying playing for the past 13 years. Cooking is also one of Jake’s passions. To relax, he enjoys playing video games and owns a large collection of classic films.
