Dr Natasha Woods
BSc DVM MSc CCAB MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour) RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Companion Animal Behaviour
Dr Natasha Woods, a veterinarian and behaviourist, is excited to join the team at Kalmpets. She understands that sometimes it can be daunting to speak to someone about pet behaviour issues but rest assured, she is passionate about each pet and their situation to create a plan to restore calm and confidence.
Natasha completed a Bachelor of Neuroscience at the University of Western Australia before studying veterinary at the University of Melbourne.
While she worked as a general practice veterinarian, she discovered that the cases she enjoyed helping most were those with behavioural problems. She also discovered that the emotional and mental health of pets was not given the same care as their physical health – something she is passionate about changing.
To bring together veterinary and behavioural knowledge, she completed a Masters in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln in the UK, and has since become an Advanced Practitioner in Companion Animal Behaviour through the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and a Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB).
