Dr Benjamin Landon

Small Animal Specialist Surgeon | Director

Dr Landon is an Australian Registered Small Animal Specialist Surgeon with a keen interest in orthopaedic, soft tissue, neurologically and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr Landon graduated from the University of Sydney 1994. Dr Landon began the early part of his career practicing at an emergency hospital. He then gained a position as a Resident in Small Animal Surgery at the University of Melbourne. During his time at University of Melbourne, Dr Landon published on portosystemic shunts in dogs and skin reconstructive techniques. After being awarded a Fellowship in Small Animal Surgery by the College of Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists, he was offered a position as Staff Specialist Surgeon at the Teaching Hospital at the University of Sydney, before being promoted to Senior Lecturer shortly after. Dr Landon continued with his full surgical caseload while taking on his new lecturing duties.


Dr Landon enjoys all aspects of surgery and has always been popular with his patients and clients due to his patient and caring personality. He is a thorough clinician and a very well-rounded surgeon.

When he is at home, he is dad to three children, a little terrier cross and a very round friendly ginger cat. He enjoys music by Ennio Morricone, ACDC and the blues. When he gets to a piano, he would normally belt out some piano rags.

Dr Adoncia Thian

BSc BVMS (Murdoch)

Senior Associate Veterinarian | Director


Dr Thian trained at Murdoch University, Western Australia and graduated in 2002. She practised in Singapore before embarking on a rotational internship at the University of Melbourne for another two years, gaining considerable experience with specialists in surgery, anaesthesia, medicine and intensive care. Dr Thian went on to work in private practice in Melbourne and then in a busy multi-vet practice in Sydney where she was the internal referral general surgeon.

Her role at LVS is mainly in practice management and taking care of staff welfare. She truly believes that a happy team gives the best care to the patients. Her clinical role is in tailoring anaesthesia plans for each patient that come through for procedures, so that there is minimal anxiety for the patient before, during and after procedures.

Dr Thian has an awesome terrier, who has travelled across Australia with her and then finally to Singapore. She is full-time mum on weekends and when she gets time, loves reading anything by Neil Gaiman, Tony Parsons, Mary Roach and Atul Gawande and listening to jazz and anything Tchaiskovsky.

Alma qualified as a human nurse in 2006. She transitioned to veterinary nursing when she was offered to work in a large vet hospital and is immensely experienced. In her own words, ‘The principles are the same, whether it is human or vet nursing. Humans and animals all need the same high level of care.’
Alma’s caring and gentle nature always puts even our most anxious and upset patients at ease. Her patient handling skills are unsurpassable, and the team can always rely on her to calm our patients down.

Family is extremely important to her. Alma spends most of her weekends with her large family and loves reading.
