Anders will provide an important link between veterinary surgeons, nurses, interns, students and other staff working at Pride with other partners and the executive board at Scarsdale Vets, ensuring that there is consistency at all levels of staff throughout the referral hospital.
In addition to his new role as a partner, Blaabjerg will continue to work at Pride as the lead consulting small animal veterinary surgeon, where his clinical interest is internal medicine.
This role is predominantly client focussed, where Blaabjerg will assess new patients (mostly dogs and cats) and liaises with their owners to agree the best course of treatment, which includes deciding whether a patient requires surgery or hospitalisation.
Blaabjerg and the team at Pride have to treat a myriad of cases on a daily basis, ranging from simple vaccinations and health checks, to diagnosing more complex cases where patients could present anything from diseases such as diabetes or requiring more specialist care to treat, for example, a neurological problem.
Blaabjerg said: “I am extremely honoured to have become a partner at Scarsdale Vets. I really enjoy my work and for me, diagnosing and solving a problem (using the skills and experience gained) is what keeps internal medicine interesting – you always see something new and there’s always something to learn, despite how experienced you are.
“I am looking forward to sharing the knowledge, opinions and values of vets, nurses and other staff with the partnership and executive board, which I hope will benefit all at Pride.”
Francis Boyer, partner and small animal clinical director at Scarsdale Vets added: “We are delighted that Anders has joined the partnership. We know his knowledge, enthusiasm for his work and relationship with our clients, patients and other team members will be a great asset to the partnership and we look forward to seeing where this takes Scarsdale going forward.”
