    Patricia Connolly

    Clinical Director of Behaviour Referrals

    BVSc, MRCVS.

    Patricia joined Woodcroft in 1995 after graduating from Liverpool University, and rejoined in 2003. In between she spent five years in small animal practice developing an interest in behaviour and companion animal mental health disorders, as well as a spell in the US treating rescue behavioural cases. She has a wealth of experience with a wide range of feline and canine behaviour problems, and particular interest in the management of chronic pain, compulsive disorders, geriatric behavioural medicine and psychopharmacology. She has also lectured on behaviour topics and has contributed to both veterinary and behavioural scientific publications. In her spare time she enjoys walking her elderly, yet very lively, English springer spaniel, Rodney, and is also learning to paddleboard.
