Dr Punke is a diplomat of both the American College of Veterinary Surgery and the European College of Veterinary Surgery. After completing his veterinary degree at the University of Georgia, USA in 2003 John went onto a 2 years of internship training in Hollywood, Florida, another 2 years of post-doctoral research at the University of Georgia and finally a 4-year residency/clinical instructorship at the University of Missouri-Columbia, also in the US.
After immigrating to Australia in 2011, John worked at SA veterinary referrals and then at Perth Animal Surgery before joining the team at Adelaide Animal Emergency & Referral Centre in 2016. Whilst enjoying the challenges of open orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries, John also has advanced training in minimally invasive surgery, including arthroscopy, laparoscopy, and thoracoscopy. Professionally, John’s greatest satisfaction comes from helping fellow veterinarians and pet owners keep pets healthy and happy.
John’s work life balance is kept level getting outdoors with his wife, enjoy hiking, trail running, camping, sailing, and taking their dogs on walks in the woods and to the beach.
