I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 1980 and have worked in small animal practice for most of the time since then. I have developed special interests in dermatology, dog and cat behaviour and canine reproduction. I regularly X-ray the hips and elbows of prospective breeding animals for submission to the BVA/KC HD scheme and advise on progesterone testing for optimal mating times.
I care passionately about the well being both physical and behavioural of all domestic pets. Outside work I enjoy owning and occasionally breeding and showing golden retrievers.
