My name is Olga Drewnowska and I’m a veterinarian, specializing mainly in equine medicine, but also cats and dogs diseases. I’ve been working with horses since childhood – first as the rider, then as the owner of two horses and now also as an equine veterinarian.
For the last 15 years I’ve attended not only dressage and jumping competitions, but also Silversand Natural Horsemanship courses, which developed my knowledge of equine behavior. Thanks to this I’m pretty aware of what they need and what kind of dangers are hidden beneath the sport disciplines.
During my studies I’d been travelling through Poland and abroad in order to achive as much theoretical and practical knowledge on how to deal with various equine diseases. I had my privilege to work with most well-known vets in equine hospitals in Gliwice (dr Golonka), Janów Podlaski (dr Karcz), Służewiec (dr Samsel), Belgium (Dierenkliniek de Morette nad de Bosdreef). For broadening my mind I also worked in small animal clinic, but after graduation I finally decided that I want to bind my life with horses.
I’ve been working as a scientific teaching assistant in Surgery Department of Large Animal Diseases with Clinic on University of Life Sciences in Warsaw since 2012 and develop my skills especially in anaesthesia and ophthalmology. I’m leading classes for polish and foreign students. Fluent English language speaking allowed me to cooperate with Medical Tribune publisher and some conferences on medical translations field.
I’ve been publishing papers quite frequently in polish and foreign scientific magazines and preparing myself on PhD work. I also attended equine diseases conferences as well as having opportunity to visit UK for 6 week anaesthesiology practice (Langford Vet Services, Leahurst Equine Hospital).
