In addition to the specialist training of residents and the teaching of final year veterinary(BVetMed) students in the dermatology clinic, Anke contributes to the dermatology teaching of year 2 and 3 BVetMed students, the FdVN course, BVetMed communication skills training and MMedVet programme.
Anke acts as deputy leader of the BVetMed skin strand, MMedVet module leader, and BVetMed course director.
Anke is interested in all aspects of small animal skin disease, including ear disease.
Extreme body shapes can cause debilitating conditions, from breathing difficulties to agonising slipped discs, and from irritated wrinkly skin to eye ulcers. Our research highlights the need for breeding strategies that safeguard the welfare of these companion animals.
Vet Compass Project Type: Dog
This study aimed to estimate the frequency of canine pyoderma and its treatment and to evaluate risk factors for treatment relapse and failure in UK primary and referral veterinary practice.
