Welcome to my friend Debbie Simpson who has set up a new practice in Auckland.
Dr. Debbie Simpson MA (Hons) Cantab BVSc MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine)
Debbie graduated from Massey University in New Zealand in 2008. During her first year in practice she completed the Pfizer (Zoetis) Internship at the Veterinary Specialist Group in Auckland, New Zealand and also worked as a veterinarian at the Animal Emergency Centre. In 2009 she moved to Australia to undertake a rotating internship at Veterinary Specialist Services in Brisbane. A residency in Veterinary Dermatology followed at Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre from 2010-2013. In May 2013 she undertook further training at Cornell University in New York State with two of the most respected and best known veterinary dermatologists in the world, Drs Danny Scott and Bill Miller. She started a referral dermatology practice in Melbourne with Dr Fiona Bateman which ran for 2 years from Nov 2013 until Nov 2015. In July 2014 she passed the Fellowship exams of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and became a registered specialist in Veterinary Dermatology.
She has presented several times at the Science Week conference on the Gold Coast of Australia - in July 2010 on the topic of canine lymphoma and in July 2013 on the topic of feline pemphigus. Publications include an original research paper on feline pemphigus and a case report on pyoderma gangrenosum for Veterinary Dermatology, a paper on hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the September and December 2009 issues of the Australian Veterinary Practitioner, which also won the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists medal and an undergraduate article on the subject of total ear canal ablation and bulla osteotomy in the newsletter of the Companion Animal Society of New Zealand.
In January 2016 Debbie and her yellow Labrador Holly moved back to Auckland and have now started up a specialist referral clinic called The Skin Vet which is based from two hospitals, The Strand Vet in Parnell and Veterinary Specialists Auckland in Mt Wellington. She works with a wonderful nurse called Ellie Clark. The Skin Vet team can be contacted on 09 216 6222 or via e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
