Welcome to The Nerdy Vet

Welcome to The Nerdy Vet. My name is Chris and as well as being a small animal vet, author and app developer, I love all things technology and, well, just a little bit nerdy.

I am always interested in hearing from you, whether it be to discuss arranging something like a school talk, or to get all nerdy over app designing, or even vet questions. There are a number of ways to get in touch – email, Twitter or LinkedIn.

    1. Hi Andy. I don’t actually have any active involvement with the apps anymore, so I have no idea. I would, however, be interested in hearing your ideas for useful features as I may well develop my own line.

  1. Hi Chris,
    I’m a vet graduate student, How can i get small animals surgery trainee-ship. I would like your suggestion.

    1. Hi Sohail. Thank you for your message and question. The answer to your question is “it depends.” Are you looking to do an internship or residency at a university? An internship in private practice? In what country? In a particular specialism/ field? Small animal? Large animal? So many questions…..

  2. Hi Chris. Ur blog is amazing. Loved reading it. Very informative n interesting !!!!!!! I’m a practicing small animal vet based in Mumbai, India n have post graduated in Veterinary Surgery in 2010. Planning to settle down in Dubai soon. Can u please guide me regarding the approximate pay structure n accomodation facilities for non-UAE vets relocating there. Eagerly awaiting for your reply. Thank u.

    1. Hi Ami. Thanks for your message and good luck for your move to Dubai. The pay really does depend on the clinic you work for and the individual arrangement you have with them, including what proportion of your package is accommodation and transport allowance and what is actual salary. As for accommodation, I can only speak for myself when I say that I have arranged my own and that the options for places to live are plentiful, so it really does come down to personal choice and budget. Hope that helps.
