Companion is inviting members to send in their soft tissue surgery questions to be answered by expert Catherine Sturgeon. Selected questions will be featured in the next ‘Ask the expert’ feature in the October issue of Companion magazine. As an added incentive, each member who submits a question will be entered into a free prize draw to win a copy of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Abdominal Surgery, second edition.
Catherine Sturgeon qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 1984 and was awarded her diploma and specialist status in small animal surgery in 2004. After spending 11 years as a first-opinion practitioner, Catherine decided to focus on soft tissue surgery, eventually establishing ‘Visiting Vet Specialists’ in 2014, to provide specialist skills to many pets nearer to their home.
The VVS service makes it possible for family pets to be assessed and treated within the familiar surroundings of their local veterinary practice, with the visiting specialists working alongside the first-opinion vets.
Catherine is looking forward to receiving your questions on soft tissue surgery which should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th July.
