APBC Patrons

Dr James Greenwood BVSc MRCVS

The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors is delighted to announce a relationship with Dr James Greenwood, BVSc MRCVS as a patron to the organisation.

James says: “I am absolutely delighted to act as patron for the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors. Understanding animal behaviour is incredibly complex. When animals start to show challenges in their behaviour, having a trusted body like the APBC to call upon to provide exceptionally skilled behaviourists is incredibly reassuring for myself as a referring veterinarian.

Knowing that those animals showing behavioural complexities will be addressed in the most appropriate manner to achieve the desired results, without compromising their welfare, stands absolutely in line with my own principles. I could not be more honoured to act as patron.”


Cat Henstridge BVSc ESVPS Cert GP (SAM) MRCVS

The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors is thrilled to announce that Cat Henstridge BVSc ESVPS Cert GP (SAM) MRCVS is a patron to the organisation. Cat graduated from Bristol Veterinary School and is an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, working in first opinion practice for over 15 years. She has significant media presence as Cat The Vet and has featured in CBBC’s The Pets Factor.

Cat says: “I have a keen interest in animal behaviour and how it impacts their humans. However, the world of animal behaviour professionals is an unregulated one and without the proper training, knowledge and understanding it is extremely easy to do more harm than good. I only recommend APBC registered behaviourists to my clients and I’m extremely pleased and proud to be working with the association as a patron.”
