AN award winning vet from Formby has published a debut book to help people “see all animals as thinking, feeling beings not dissimilar to ourselves.”
Sean Wensley has penned ‘Through a Vet’s Eye’, which has been described as “a vet’s eye-opening polemic about our relationship with animals; how we treat them, how we get it wrong and what we can do to fix it.”
Sean studied at the University of Liverpool Veterinary School and was awarded a scholarship to investigate the welfare of caged zebra finches housed under typical pet shop conditions.
He was recently appointed the President of the British Veterinary Association and he chairs the Animal Welfare Working Group of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe, which represents veterinary organisations from 40 European countries.
Sean has contributed to animal welfare and conservation projects around the world and in 2017 received the inaugural World Veterinary Association (WVA) Global Animal Welfare Award for Europe.
He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and is Senior Veterinary Surgeon for Communication and Education at the national UK veterinary charity, the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA). His media appearances include BBC Radio 4 Today, BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine and The Big Questions.
