Hi, my name is Cheryl MacPherson and I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 1995. I have been working in emergency practice since 2001 and obtained membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care in 2003. I have also spent time teaching clinical anaesthesia at Sydney University and treating injured wildlife in Thailand since then. Variety is the spice of life and emergency practice certainly feeds this desire! I hope you enjoy my blog and learn something useful that may help your pet in an emergency.
