Qualified as vet in Edinburgh 1985
Have been based in Ireland since 1991
Have worked in the print media since I started my first newspaper column in 1993
Have done regular radio and television work since 1994
Since 2005, I have been taking on more work as a journalist, but I continue to work as a vet in practice for at least two days every week, to ensure that I continue to speak with authority on my specialist subject.
I am a partner in a busy 5 vet practice in Bray, Co Wicklow, Ireland, but I spend 50% of my working week on media work. My main focus is writing, and I have weekly columns in the Daily Telegraph and the Evening Herald, as well as syndicated columns in a wide range of Irish regional newspapers. I appear weekly on Irish breakfast time television, as well has having a local radio slot which is broadcast as a podcast from my blog. As a veterinary journalist, I do write technical pieces for veterinary publications, but my main focus is writing on pet matters for the general public, who have an ongoing fascination with pets, from dogs and cats, to rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils etc etc. Keywords: Pete Wedderburn, Animal Expert, Animal Specialist, Veterinary, Vet, Vets, Companion Animal, Animal, Animals, Pet, Pets, Dog, Dogs, Cat, Cats, Rabbit, Rabbits, Hamster, Hamsters, Guinea Pig, Guinea Pigs, Mouse, Mice, Rat, Rats, Gerbil, Gerbils, Chinchilla, Chinchillas, Snake, Snakes, Lizard, Lizards, Puppy, Puppies, Kitten, Kittens, Crufts, Scruffts, Vets, Veterinarian, Pet Vet, Small Animal, Small Animals, Companion Animals, Reptile, Reptiles, Animal Welfare, Terrapin, Terrapins, Exotic Pets, Exotic Pet, Small Furries, Media Vet, Veterinary Journalist, TV Vet, Celebrity Vet, Television Vet, Radio Vet, Dogs Trust, Animal Health, Pet Illness, Pet Insurance, Behaviour, Pet Behaviour, Pet Bereavement, Animal Doctor, Cage Bird, Birds, Budgerigar, Budgie, Budgies, Goldfish, Parrot, Parrots, Fish, Stray Dog, Stray Dogs, Dangerous Dogs, Dog Pound, Stray Cat, Stray Cats, Feral Cat, Feral Cats, Cats and Dogs, Trap Neuter Release, Neuter, Spay, Castrate, Vetinary, Veterinary Surgeon, Vet Surgeon, Vetinary Surgeon, Aquarium, Animal Behaviour, Pet Behaviour, Dog Behaviour, Cat Behaviour, Animal Clinic, Pet Health, Canine, Feline, Lapine, Avian, Animal Hospital, Pet Grooming, Pet Boarding, Kennels, Cattery, Flea Control, Worms, Veterinary Hospital, Vet Hospital, Pet Hospital, Pet Hospitals, Pet Vaccinations, Pet Vaccines, Dog Vaccines, Cat Vaccines, Dog Vaccination, Cat Vaccination, Pet Care, Animal Care, Pet Guru, Animal Charity, Animal Charities, RSPCA, ISPCA, Blue Cross, Battersea Dogs Home, Veterinary Medicine, Veterinary Surgery, dangerous dogs, dog bites
