We are delighted to welcome Camilla Pegram to the team. Camilla obtained a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine from The Royal Veterinary College in 2015 and has since been working in first opinion small animal practice. She developed an interest in research whilst an undergraduate, and has returned to The Royal Veterinary College to complete a Master of Research degree in Epidemiology, specifically studying urinary incontinence in bitches. This is a hotly discussed topic amongst small animal veterinarians, so she looks forward to reviewing it further.
The project aims to characterise the epidemiology of urinary incontinence in bitches attending veterinary practice in the UK and evaluate the association of neutering with the condition. This important piece of work is funded by BSAVA PetSavers. Professor Dave Brodbelt and Dr Dan O’Neill will supervise the project.
