Dr. Vicki Lim is a companion animal veterinarian based in New Zealand. She is founder of The Riptide Project, an international veterinary wellbeing initiative; and co-founder of Living 'Ruff, a veterinary initiative to provide free veterinary care to pets of the homeless in New Zealand. She is a committee member for the Auckland Veterinary Society, and a founding member of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Professional Wellness Group. Vicki has also been invited to speak at international veterinary conferences and schools in Europe and Asia. Apart from her work in a small animal practice which helps to pay for her (unfortunately expensive) travel habit, Vicki is an experienced fosterer and committee member for Retired Working Dogs NZ, a charitable trust which finds loving homes for farm dogs after their years of hard work.
