certification in Feline Practice. She is part owner of two feline specialty practices in
Ottawa, Canada. Dr. Little is a contributing author to several publications, including the
Cat Fanciers' Association Complete Cat Book (2004) and the Royal Canin Practical Guide

Raw Feeding - Derek Turnbull
Derek Turnbull was a SARDA Mount Rescue Search Dog Handler and during that time became very interested in the feeding of raw food to dogs. He also owns cats and has observed how well adapted they are to catching their own raw food. He has done considerable study into the subject and is currently writing a book with the title of "Feeding Dogs Raw - The Why, The What and The How", which will be published in 2009. A companion title, 'Feeding Cats Raw', is to follow shortly thereafter.
Plight of the Scottish Wildcat - Steve Piper
Wildlife filmmaker Steve Piper became involved in Scottish wildcats whilst filming the documentary Last of the Scottish Wildcats. Steve has a background in corporate marketing and directs a media company specialising in wildlife, music and dramatic films, music management and design. He is currently working on documentary projects in Mongolia, Botswana and Scotland focusing on small cat species for which he has a particular fondness.
Gingivitis and Stomatitis - Peter Southerden
Peter Southerden's particular clinical interest is dentistry and his studies in this area have improved the range and quality of treatment that the practice now offers. He is currently studying for a Diploma in Veterinary Dentistry. Away from work Pete devotes much of his time to his family and his pets (3 dogs, 2 cats).
