Lewis Kirkham

Dr Lewis Kirkham, a veterinarian with further qualifications in animal behavior, has a lifelong fascination with pets and their interaction with their owners. Since graduating as a veterinarian from the University of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, Dr Kirkham has worked in a variety of practices in both Australia and the United Kingdom.

In 2004, he founded Animal Behavior Solutions, a company that provides private counselling and behavioral advice for pet owners. Through this company, Dr Kirkham has assisted numerous pets and their owners in the assessment and management of behavior problems. He is also a consultant to local and international zoos and sanctuaries on exotic species' behavioral problems.

Dr Kirkham regularly features on TV, radio and online media regarding behavioral problems in pets. He contributes to the Age, Herald Sun, the Daily Telegraph, the Courier Mail, the Advertiser and the Australian newspapers, Dogs Life, Living and Lifestyle, Oriental BQ Weekly, Woolworths Baby and Toddler Club and Urban Animal magazines. He has also published in the Australian Veterinary Journal. He is a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

The birth of his two daughters ignited his passion for educating expectant parents about the smooth transition from a child-free cat or dog-owning family to a larger family with a new baby. Following the worldwide success of Dr Kirkham's first book, Tell Your Dog You're Pregnant: An essential guide for dog owners who are expecting a baby, he became aware of the widespread demand for a book to assist pregnant owners of cats, hence the arrival of Tell Your Cat You're Pregnant: An essential guide for cat owners who are expecting a baby.

Currently Dr Kirkham divides his time between his family, private veterinary practice, companion and exotic animal behavior referrals and online veterinary support.
