Ep 34: Dr. Sheilah Robertson – A Great Scot in America

Episode Details

On today’s show, I’m delighted to welcome back anesthesia, feline, and end of Life care guru Dr. Sheliah Robertson.
Dr. Sheliah Roberston grew up in Scotland and graduated from Glasgow University. Her career spans more than three decades and encompasses numerous roles.

Sheilah has held many prestigious positions including work with AVMA, she’s a two-time member of the American Animal Hospital Association and American Association of Feline Practitioners Pain Management Taskforce. And has served as the president of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia.

That’s saying nothing of the massive list of publications she has written or contributed to. All of which means she’s out of sight at the good end of the Dunning-Kruger effect curve.

In 2017, Sheilah joined Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice as the Senior Medical Director and helps the team deliver the best end-of-life care experience possible.


Now, just before we jump into the episode, I just wanted to drop a quick word from today’s show sponsor which is the VetX: Thrive community.

Now, back to the show, I learned so much from my first conversation with Sheliah that around two was always on the cards. So it gives me huge pleasure to bring you this, my second conversation with the fantastic Dr. Sheilah Robertson.

In this episode, we get into a lot more detail on Sheliah’s backstory.  We also talk about mythology, vet life, and more.
