What is a specialist?
In order to achieve the status of European Specialist a vet must have undergone a three year residency training programme in their chosen speciality, under the supervision of a qualified Diplomate, followed by a rigorous examination. They must also have published research in their field and presented this research at international conferences, as well as been involved in the continuing education of vets and pet owners. Hannah is still actively involved in research, with a particular interest in dilated cardiomyopathy in Great Danes.
Hannah has worked in large multi-disciplinary hospitals and undergone extensive training in internal medicine, gaining the RCVS certificate in Small Animal Medicine in the process. If a pet's heart condition ultimately is associated with another medical condition, we can advise on other investigations that may be required.
