Dr Tina Baxter graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Sydney in 1999, and then worked in a busy mixed clinic in Sydney. She returned to the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Camden (UVTHC) in 2004 to undertake five years of additional training in dermatology under the supervision of Linda Vogelnest. Tina has published numerous journal articles including a major research paper on allergy testing in horses, and is a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Medicine.
Tina’s focus is now mainly on skin, ear and allergic problems in dogs, cats and horses, including intradermal allergy testing and desensitisation programs for these species. Tina is a strong advocate for responsible use of antibiotics, in an effort to prevent, and improve management of, antibiotic resistant bacterial skin infections, which are increasingly occurring in animal species.
Tina is also passionate about teaching the veterinarians of the future; not just in medicine and skin conditions, but in good communication, finding a work:life balance, and preserving the love for working as a veterinarian.
