Benoît Cuq, DMVCuq.JPG

Benoît graduated from the National Veterinary School of Toulouse, France, in 2011. He then completed a specialty internship in Clinical Pathology in the same institution. Benoît moved to Canada to join the Université of Montréal as a rotating intern in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery. He was then offered a position at the OVC as an Intern with a special focus on Small Animal Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine for a year before starting an ACVIM residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine in 2014.

Benoît would like to practice in Academia and loves to teach students.

He holds the French Certificate in Veterinary Clinical Pathology.

Benoît is interested in all fields of Internal Medicine with a special mention for immune mediated diseases, coagulopathies, endocrinology and nephrology. He already led a research project in hematology and one in hemostasis in cats. Because thromboembolic events are a frequent and very unfortunate complication in several diseases, his research project will focus on improving the detection of hypercoagulability and inflammation and thus better prevent thrombi and stroke.
