About Annette Kutter

After graduation (1999) and doctoral thesis at the University of Zurich, Annette specialized in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia and became a Diplomate in 2005. She is also interested in alternative medicine to treat pain with the help of acupuncture and osteopathy.

Since ever, she is interested in putting as many cables as possible near the animal and she evaluated many different monitoring techniques, always trying to understand what is going on in patients in anaesthesia and intensive care. She published and reviewed several studies mainly focussing on monitoring of changes in cardiopulmonary parameters and coagulation. Her current goal is to bring novel monitoring to the patients and let them profit from better understanding the actual impact of anaesthetics on the body instead of just guessing what is going on.

Today she is head of small animal anaesthesia and co-supervisor of the ECVAA residency program at the Vetsuisse Faculty of the University of Zurich.
