Researcher profile for Catherine Rice
Hi, I'm Cat.
I started my veterinary nursing career working with horses and training as a RCVS VN in Northern Ireland. I practiced mostly in a small animal and equine hospital, later working in rural practice and as a locum. I moved home to NZ about a decade ago and have enjoyed working at OP since then. I work both with on-campus students and distance learners. My area of interest is the connection between human and animal welfare. I have recently joined a 'One Welfare' working group developing free access guidance for veterinary, medical and social services professionals on the link between animal and human abuse and neglect.
