Author Biography

Piet Ramzan is one of the leading veterinary clinicians of his generation working in Thoroughbred practice. An upbringing riding Western performance horses in the Hunter Valley led to graduation from the University of Sydney Veterinary School in 1994, and following a season working as a stockman in the Kimberley region of Northern Australia he moved to the UK and entered veterinary practice. In 1998 he joined Rossdale and Partners, Europe's largest equine practice, and commenced a distinguished career that encompasses first opinion work in Newmarket racing yards and pre-purchase consultancy across northern and southern hemispheres. He has a strong interest in advancing the science and practice of racehorse sports medicine and has drawn on busy clinical practice to inform academic research and drive innovation in many fields, publishing a large number of peer-reviewed papers and regularly contributing to scientific symposia and industry advisory boards. He is a previous recipient of BEVA's Richard Hartley Clinical Award and in 2018 was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) for Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice.
