Dr Julia Behrends MRCVS CERP
After graduating from Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover, Germany, in 1994, I followed my heart to Lincolnshire, UK, and started working in mixed practice next to doing my post graduate qualification in animal behaviour. After a few years in practice my interest in complementary medicine started to form with a focus on acupuncture
and pain management and I trained as a Canine and Equine Rehabilitation Practitioner at the University of Tennessee, USA.
From 2008 until 2016 my family moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where I was working also with horses, from leisure horses in desert stables to race horses at various race courses. I was privileged to work as a veterinary official at major races in UAE including at the Dubai World Cup.
After moving back to the UK I wanted to reconnect with small animal practice and joined Vets4Pets. At home I have 2 elderly well-traveled Jack-Russell Terriers Vicky and Ronja and Piper, a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon rescue bitch from Spain. My passion is my 2 Quarter Horse mares Peppy and Pepsy which I ride and compete in Western Riding and my big French Show Jumping horse Mozart which we brought back from Dubai.
