  • 90 Life after graduation

    Fri, 9 Nov 2018

    Author: Dominic Barfield

    Duration: 00:42:47

    In the studio and with better audio now that Brian is recording this time, we are joined a year later by a previous RVC graduate Dave Beeston. We follow up on Dave’s transition into being a professional and find out if he still cooks once a week to prepare all his meals. He continues to be involved in a variety of different things and no doubt he will have his own podcast shortly. Makes me think what have I done in the last year? Not sure that we will continue as long as Michael Apted following Dave, but we will try to get him back next year. Dave will be back writing his column in the Vet Times in the new year. We hope that you enjoy.

She wrote an article for the Vet Times on hypoglycaemia and thought that it would be good to have a chat about it.
