Paul Hatten


Beate first met Paul in 2006 when both were appointed to find out the cause of an intermittent lameness in a horse. “I was genuinely impressed not only by the very thorough way that Paul determined the cause of the lameness, but also by the way he explained each step, giving the horse owner a clear understanding of the each stage of the assessment. Besides his profound knowledge, Paul is a very modest and trustworthy character, these attributes I would look for in a vet dealing with my animals as well as in a member of our Team ”, says Beate.

Paul’s story tells of an animal loving, determined and successful horseman:
After having graduated as Bachelor of Veterinary Science in Brisbane in 1977, Paul worked for the Belmont Horse Hospital in Perth, arranged and supervised the transport of horses to Canada and the US before gaining further experience at the Swedish University Equine Clinics and locum work in an equine biased mixed practice in England.
Returning to Australia Paul took a veterinary position at Hahndorf Equine Hospital, Adelaide’s main practice at that time. He held a position at the official Veterinary Panel of South Australia Jockey Club.
In 1981 Paul commenced his own practice in Adelaide and Adelaide Hills and in 1983 Morphettville Equine Clinic in Adelaide was founded which soon became the main Equine Clinic in Adelaide and surrounds.
Paul also held the position of elected South Australian Representative on the executive of the Australian Equine Veterinary Association for years before selling his share of the Morphettville Clinic and moving to Queensland where he purchased North Coast Equine Veterinary Services on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

He contracted to Sunshine Coast Turf Club as the official race-day Veterinarian.
In 2002 Paul sold his practice but continued with private veterinary work as well as working for the AQIS .
