Emma Rogers-Smith


Professional Bio

Before qualifying as a Veterinary Surgeon from the Cambridge University, Emma worked part-time for many years at a small animal veterinary clinic. That role evolved into her first job as veterinary surgeon after qualifying. After 18-months in busy first opinion practice she decided to advance her veterinary training and undertook a rotating internship followed by 2 and a half years of residency training as an Internal Medicine Clinician at a large multidisciplinary referral hospital in the UK. She has always had a passion for solving puzzles and the really tricky internal medicine cases are her favourite. Emma has published several first author research papers and is actively involved in on-going research projects in the field of Internal Medicine and Antibiotic Stewardship.

Outside of veterinary life Emma is the Creative Director of a handmade homeware business and enjoys spending her free time with her husband and 2-year-old daughter going for long walks and baking cakes!

Emma’s Pets

Emma owns a small menagerie of animals (not including her toddler and husband). She has two dogs (Summer and Parsnip), two cats (Mr Kitty and Smidge), a small flock of chickens, two fish and a horse called Jake.

For me writing allows creative expression of knowledge. I love to empower people with knowledge and believe passionately that accurate veterinary advice should be available in a written format that is both engaging and accessible when people need it most.
