Samantha Lindley BVSc MRCVS
Samantha qualified from Bristol Veterinary School in 1988 and interned at Glasgow Veterinary School as Large Animal House Physician. After four years mixed practice in Ayrshire, she moved to join Dr Roger Mugford’s Animal Behaviour Centre where she worked as veterinary consultant, developing interests in the clinical causes of behaviour problems; the welfare of captive wild animals; acupuncture and chronic pain management; and making regular TV and radio appearances to discuss these topics. At this time Samantha became involved in large number of legal cases, primarily those brought under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 and has continued to act as an expert witness in such cases. In 1997 she moved back to Scotland and started a behaviour clinic at the Small Animal Hospital at Glasgow Vet School and across central Scotland. Samantha continues to work for the welfare of captive wild animals; teaches vets, vet students and nurses; and writes extensively on all her subjects of interest.
