In 2007, Surita graduated from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, after which she spent 6 years in equine private practice. Next, she completed a four-year combined residency and professional doctorate in equine internal medicine at Charles Sturt University in NSW. Her doctorate research project involved non-invasive diagnostic evaluation of lower airway health in horses with mild to moderate equine asthma. She attained Diplomate status of the European College of Equine Internal Medicine in 2018, and joined the team at the University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Veterinary Hospital.
Surita enjoys all aspects of equine medicine but she has a specific interest in non-infectious lower airway diseases including equine asthma, neonatal and adult critical care, ophthalmology, gastroenterology and therapeutics.
