Gary Dew


Gary is a Massey graduate, and started his first veterinary job in South Canterbury in December, 1991.

Growing up on a Grey Valley dairy farm, coming back to practice on the Coast was never in his sights, but back here he came in January of 1997.

A shareholder in West Coast Vets, Gary spends most of his time on the road looking at dairy cows and deer. He is a trained in-calf advisor and healthy hoof consultant.

Married to Jill with four adult children, they are now on the countdown to grandchildren – but hopefully not too soon. A keen traveller, he and Jill have a number of projects on their bucket list – one of which is to see the Highlanders claim a second Super Rugby title….
