New SVMA Registrar selected
We are happy to announce that Dr Marc Cattet (DVM, PhD) will be taking over for Dr Judy Currie in the role of SVMA Registrar. Dr Cattet will be working in the SVMA office starting March 1, 2019. Dr Currie will still be onsite until the end of March.
Marc Cattet is a veterinarian and researcher with a varied background as it relates to animals. He received his B.Sc. (Guelph ‘82) and M.Sc. (Alberta ’88), and worked as a wildlife technician with the Government of the Northwest Territories, before completing his veterinary education (OVC ’93). He then worked as a mixed animal practitioner in southwest England and the Ottawa Valley before returning to university to specialize in veterinary pathology (WCVM ’00). Over the past two decades, much of Marc’s work has focused on wildlife with emphasis on the safe and humane capture of wild animals and on determining how the health of wild animals is impacted by human activities. This work has occurred while changing hats several times from university researcher to private consultant and small business owner, and most recently, to the Yukon’s acting Chief Veterinary Officer. He currently resides in Saskatoon with his wife Heather and their dogs Milou and Crosby. Marc can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
