Pete Wedderburn is Ireland's best known Veterinary Surgeon. He runs a busy vet practice in Bray, and at the same time he has a busy career in the media. He has been the resident vet on TV3's Ireland AM for the past 14 years. He has also been working as a regular contributor to radio, both locally and nationally, for over twenty years. Every week Pete joins Pat Kenny on Newstalk for his listener query slot, as well as having regular vet spots on East Coast FM and Spirit Radio.
He has a weekly column in The Evening Herald and The Daily Telegraph in the UK. He also writes weekly features in the Independent network of regional newspapers.
He has authored three books to date. The first book is titled My Dog Thinks He's Human, and the second is called My Cat Is Ignoring Me. Both books include some of his most helpful tips, and they are illustrated with hilarious cartoons by Per Jose Karlen. His third book Pete Wedderburn’s Healthy Pets was aimed at young people taking up pet keeping. Pete's fourth book was published in April and is called 'Pet Subjects: Animal Tales from The Telegraph's Resident Vet'.
