Dr. Susan Brown graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1976. She has practiced strictly exotic animal medicine since 1980 and is the founder of the Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital, the first all-exotic animal vet in the country. Currently she operates The Behavior Connection (www.behaviorconnection.com), which is dedicated to teaching people how to improve their relationship with their pets through the science of behavior and the art of training.
Dr. Brown co-founded the Greater Chicago Ferret Association and was their first medical director. She was the health director for the Chicago chapter of the House Rabbit Society and is currently the health director for the national House Rabbit Society. She has lectured extensively to veterinarians and the general public in the US and Europe on the veterinary care of exotic pets, particularly rabbits and ferrets. She has published numerous articles in veterinary and lay publications and is the co-author of three books on small mammal care.
Starting in 2004, Dr. Brown has studied animal behavior and training techniques in order to teach caregivers of any species of animal to enrich the relationship they have with their pet. She believes that the better people understand the animals under their care, the higher the quality of life will be for animals and people alike.
