Diagnostic laboratory Axiom Veterinary Laboratories has appointed veterinary dermatologist Sarah Warren as an allergy advisory consultant.
In this role she will be responsible for advising Axiom’s clients on questions regarding the appropriate use of allergy testing.
Mrs Warren qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1998 and, following 12 years in small animal practice, gained the RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Dermatology.
She runs a busy dermatology referral service in the south of the UK, is active in CPD provision for dermatology and provides an email and telephone advisory service to vets nationwide.
Mrs Warren is also proceedings editor for the British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group (BVDSG) and is a member of the European Society of Veterinary Dermatology (ESVD).
Commenting on her appointment, she said: “I have a passionate interest
in allergy treatment and the key role that allergen-specific immunotherapy may play in the long-term management of allergic patients as part of an individualised multimodal treatment regime.
“I hope to provide clinicians with a useful resource and to improve treatment success for allergy patients throughout the UK.”
Martyn Carpenter, director of Axiom Veterinary Laboratories, added: “With the launch of our new allergy test, MiPetAllergy, and the transition to our new immunotherapy vaccine supplier, we are fortunate to find an expert like Sarah to guide our clients through the changes.
“She helped us to bring sublingual immunotherapy to the UK and, as she is continuing her day to day clinical work, there is no one better placed to advise on which treatment is best suited to which patient.”
Axiom Veterinary Laboratories is based in Newton Abbott in Devon and has a satellite lab in Vauxhall, London.
It has offered a clinical pathology service to the veterinary industry for more than 25 years.
