Companion-Veterinary-Clinic-therese_rasback-Dowie

I graduated from the Swedish University of Agricultural Science (SLU), Uppsala, in 1998. My clinical background includes various mixed practices and teaching at the Companion Animal Clinic at the University in Sweden before I spent half a year in the UK during 2001. I achieved my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and ended up working for 16 years in total for the Swedish government before I returned to England with my British husband.
Back in beautiful England, I very much enjoy being back in to clinical work, meeting animals and their owners. I have enjoyed owning many pets, but now I have three children to look after which keeps me busy.
