Originally from Mauritius, Dr Shivananden Sawmy has worked as a field biologist with some of the island's critically endangered wildlife, such as the Pink Pigeon and Echo Parakeet for several years prior to graduating from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh, UK in 2010. He enjoys treating all pet species ranging from dogs and cats, rabbits, reptiles, raptors to fish. Having a passion for exotic animals and wildlife work, he completed a year-long internship in Avian/Exotics Animal Surgery and Medicine under the mentorship of Neil Forbes, FRCVS, at Great Western Exotics in 2013.
He has worked in exotics and small animal practices across the UK until the opportunity to move back to Scotland presented itself. Furthermore, he have also worked with a neuter clinic, primates and endangered reptile and bird species back his native Mauritius.
He is currently enrolled on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ Certificate AVP in Zoological Medicine course and has recently collaborated on a chapter in a soon to be published textbook on Reptile Medicine and Surgery (Editor: Brendan Carmel). He looks forward to providing gold standard treatment to all things scaly, feathery and furry.
