About PetVet, Pippa
Dr Pippa Elliott BVMS, MRCVS is a veterinarian with over 30 years experience in companion animal practice. In 1987 she graduated from the University of Glasgow, with a degree in veterinary medicine and surgery. A love of the sea meant accepting her first job in the port town of Portsmouth, England.
After working in private practice for two years, her next position was as a vet at the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals. This charity treats the sick and injured pets belonging to those on low income.
After a spell in Australia, and with a young family, Pippa returned home. She joined the clinic where she first saw practice as a teenager who dreamt of becoming a vet. She has worked there now, on and off, for over 20 years.
Pippa is an advocate of Fear-Free Practice, an animal addict, and a freelance veterinary copywriter. Her specialty is taking dry, dense topics that stick in the throat, and turning them into mouth-watering morsels which are easy to digest.
She is also works with Improve International as developmental editor on veterinary textbooks, and is the nominated vet for Cats Protection, Harrow.
