Emma Milne, veterinary surgeon, TV presenter and author
‘For many years I have admired and respected the work of iCatCare and have always been impressed by the charity’s steadfast dedication to improving the welfare of all cats. It is a massive honour to be asked to join them as an ambassador and I only hope I can live up to their excellent credentials!’
Emma qualified as a veterinary surgeon from Bristol Veterinary School, UK, in 1996 and went on to work in a mixed, country practice in Somerset, Cheltenham and York in the UK.
She is best known for her appearances in the highly successful BBC One programme, Vets in Practice, and appeared in all 11 series. She has since appeared in numerous TV and radio programmes and has co-presented programmes on wildlife and been a regular guest reporter for the BBC’s Inside Out programme.
Emma’s first book, The Truth About Cats and Dogs was published in July 2007 and highlighted health problems in pedigree dogs and cats associated with body size and shape as well as other inherited conditions. In March 2012 her second book, Tales from the Tail End, a light-hearted collection of memoirs from her time on TV and as a vet, was published. Her most recent writing is a series of children’s pet care books, The Pet Detective Series, including Is a cat the right pet for you? based on animals’ five welfare needs and the importance of mental as well as physical wellbeing.
International Cat Care is delighted to have Emma on board as an ambassador for the charity.
