|Markus graduated from Munich
University in September 1997. He then completed a doctorate thesis in pet
bird nutrition at the University of Hanover in 2000. While studying he saw
practice in many countries including France, Spain, Italy, USA and
England. Markus made such an impression as a visiting postgraduate that he
was asked to join us at Lansdown Vets in June 2001.
His main interests have always been with avian, small animal surgery and exotic animals and he is also a member of the Association of Avian Vets.
Markus intends to widen his knowledge of all exotic species while working at Lansdown Vets, with a view to continuing his involvement with exotics in the future, either in veterinary, zoological or conservation work.
Markus's hobbies include playing the trumpet. He played first trumpet with the Hanover Symphony Orchestra and was busy in Jazz, Funk and Salsa Bands. When he can't be seen on the streets of Stroud on his unique recumbent bicycle he might be seen birdwatching.
