The Humanimal Trust is the first charity in the UK set up specifically to champion the simultaneous advancement of animal and human healthcare.

In a world where ideas and technology are shared between veterinary and human medicine, both species will truly benefit.

The Humanimal Trust promotes and supports the integration of new developments in veterinary and medical science and education, building closer working relationships between vets and doctors.

As a surgeon who operates on humans, I know first-hand how many of the modern advances available to our patients have come as the result of the experimentation and testing of surgical techniques and implants in animals. Humans have benefited hugely from this and are undoubtedly better off as a result. The flow of information and experience in the reverse direction from human experience to enhance the care of animals is a natural progression in a caring society. Collaboration between the care givers in human and veterinary medicine should be seen as an opportunity to enhance each other’s knowledge and to improve care across both professions
