Within our team we have an Internal Medicine and Dermatology Certificate holder, and an exotic specialist. We also have colleagues studying for Certificates in ECC, Internal medicine, Surgery and Behaviour. We also have an amazing team of RVNs, many of whom have further qualifications in ECC, behaviour and clinical pathology.
