Sarah Keir is now an Advanced Practitioner!

Sarah, one of our vets who has worked at The Wheelhouse since 2008, has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Medicine and subsequent listing as an RCVS Advanced Practitioner.

For the certificate Sarah had to study for 3 years and sit several exams! There are only a few hundred Advanced Practitioners in the country so we are very lucky to have one of them working with us.

These qualifications show that Sarah has additional knowledge and experience in small animal medicine, allowing her to investigate and treat cases to a high standard. This is complemented by Sarah's extra skills in ultrasonography. The great news is you can come and see Sarah at convenient times as she works full time and the consultation charges are the same as our normal fees.

Sarah says "I am very excited to have studied and completed this certificate and all the extra things I can do for my patients. The world of veterinary medicine is changing very fast at the moment so having up to date knowledge is very important. Being a vet is a combination of science, skills, art and compassion to help my patients and their owners and I look forward to helping many more now."

Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons:

‘Advanced Practitioner’ is an official recognition of a veterinary surgeon’s particular knowledge and skills in a designated field of veterinary practice. The list of Advanced Practitioners provides a clear indication to the profession and the public of those veterinary surgeons who we have accredited at postgraduate certificate level (Masters level 7), and who have not only demonstrated knowledge and experience in a particular area of veterinary practice beyond their initial primary veterinary degree, but who have also confirmed that they continue to be up to date in their field over and above our minimum requirements for continuing professional development (CPD).
