Our Team

Dr Dennis Cutts

Dr Dennis Cutts

Co-Founder & Head Vet

Dr Dennis Cutts thinks being a vet is the best job in the world. After graduating from the University of Sydney in 1981, he worked for two years in a mixed practice on the western outskirts of Sydney. In 1984 he moved to Sunbury and developed a practice treating the full range of domestic and farm animals. Since 2000 he has restricted his practice to pet animals and developed strong interests in orthopaedic conditions, general surgery and behavioural issues.

In recent years he has enjoyed spending more time with clients helping them keep their pets healthy and happy. A desire for a sea change and the opportunity to continue providing veterinary care to the community has led Dennis and his wife Robyn, to start Rosebud Pet Vet. Dennis realises that in the information age people can be overwhelmed and confused and need someone they can trust to help sort through the different options for their pet’s health. Outside of work you may see Dennis and his fox terrier Jimmy walking on the foreshore, or whizzing past on his bicycle, or even trying to keep afloat on his kayak.
