Animalcare extends technical team

Dr Colin Capner has joined Animalcare as a Technical Vet. In this role, he will support the company’s growth strategy and provide high quality technical advice and support to vet practices across the UK.

Dr Capner graduated from the RVC in 1992 and has worked as a clinical veterinary surgeon in a variety of first opinion practices and referral centres. He trained as a veterinary anaesthetist at Bristol and Cambridge Universities before moving into the pharmaceutical industry, gaining experience in drug development and in technical support, and pre- and post-marketing, at a number of companies.

Commenting on his new role he said: “Animalcare is introducing a number of new and innovative medicines, such as Daxocox©- its weekly NSAID to reduce breakthrough pain in dogs with osteoarthritis – to the veterinary sector.  This makes it an exciting environment in which to provide technical support.

“I’m looking forward to exploring how my experience can be most useful in supporting Animalcare’s expansion and, more importantly, ensuring that the company’s customers receive the guidance and advice they need to optimise the effectiveness of Animalcare’s product range in treating their patients.”

Senior Veterinary Manager Felicity Caddick said:

“Colin Capner’s experience will be hugely useful to us as we continue to build our product portfolio in key therapy areas in growing market segments. During the next few months, we will be continuing to launch new products and develop a differentiated and innovative pipeline of products for the future.

“Delivering excellent technical support to our customers is an essential part of the service we offer as we grow.  The addition of Colin to our Technical team gives us a strength and depth of experience that we know our customers will value highly.”
