Dr Reginald Wooldridge, the great vet who founded the Animal Health Trust back in 1942, aimed for veterinary medicine to advance at the same rate as human medicine, to ensure our companion animals receive the best care and treatments possible.
To honour his legacy we would like to introduce you to Reggie, who will be going behind the scenes around all the areas of the AHT to discover how far the Trust has come in 75 years.
He’ll be giving you a special insight into the wonderful clinics treating very sick or injured animals; touring our labs where new treatments and vaccines are developed; and he’ll even be testing out some the pioneering medical techniques that Reginald would be very proud of!
