Low Stress Handling (Certified Silver) , Fear Free Certified Professional, ISFM AdvCertFB
Dr. Daphne Ang obtained her degree in Veterinary medicine from the university of Sydney in 2007. Prior to that, she was a licensed pharmacist working at a major local hospital.
She enjoys all aspect of Veterinary medicine but realised through the years of practice that animals are euthanised or have their welfare and healthcare compromised due to behaviour-related issues.
Having a soft spot for fearful and aggressive animals prompted her to explore how she can improve their quality of care and provide a positive clinic experience.
She went on to pursue post graduate studies on Behavioral Medicine (University of Sydney) with Dr. Kersti Seksel and the ISFM Advanced course on Feline behavior.
She continues to keep abreast with evidence based practices by attending courses, conferences and work placements with board certified veterinary behavourists overseas.
She hopes that Veterinary Medicine can be practiced in a compassionate and low-stress environment, and helping owners build strong and meaningful bonds with their pets. She believes that education in this area is lacking and more can be done to improve the mental and emotional health of an animal.
