Professionally, I'm a member of the Royal College of
Veterinary Surgeons, the British Veterinary
Association and the British Small Animal Veterinary
Association. I hold honorary memberships of

Catalunya, Spain.

I've written original scientific articles published in
refereed journals in UK, USA and Canada and
commissioned review papers published in scientific
journals in Australia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway,
Spain and Sweden. For statistic gatherers I've been
fortunate enough to be an invited speaker at
symposia and veterinary faculties in 24 countries.

Outside of my profession I'm the co-founder and
vice-chairman of the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf
People. I'm also a founding member of The Society
for Companion Animal Studies in the UK and the
Delta Society in the USA. I've been a professional

insurance companies and in 1999 was the
co-founder and content provider for a pet care
website selected by Forbes Magazine as the
"World's Best Pet Care Website". In 2000 I was
Veterinary Consultant to Microsoft Encarta and in

I was born on February 17, 1944 in Toronto,
Ontario, Canada, where I was raised and educated,
graduating in 1970 with a DVM degree (Doctor of
Veterinary Medicine) from the Ontario Veterinary
College, University of Guelph in nearby Guelph,

After graduating I went to London, England on a
travel fellowship, to work as a veterinarian at the
Zoological Society of London's Regent's Park Zoo. A
year later I joined a veterinary practice in
Knightsbridge where I remained for two years. In
1973 I set up my own practice, the Portman
Veterinary Clinic, and married my wife, the actress
Julia Foster.

We have three children. Emily is a graphic designer.
Ben (BenFogle.com) is a writer, journalist and
broadcaster, and Tamara is an accessories and
fashion designer (TamaraLovesLeather.com). In the
1990s Julia gravitated into the antiques trade and is
today Britain's leading authority on Swedish painted
furniture from 1700s and 1800s
(JuliaFosterAntiques.com). We share our home with
Macy, a golden retriever. Ben's black Labrador, Inca
and Tamara's Labrador, Lola (Inca's daughter) also
consider our place to be theirs and visit almost daily.
