Bio/Research

Dr. Bateman’s research interests are in the role of communication in the veterinarian-patient-client relationship and enhancing the human-animal bond in communities with inadequate access to veterinary care. Clinically, his interests include pain management, intravenous (IV) fluid therapy and hemostasis.

Bateman’s most recent past research focused on pain management in cats/dogs which aims to elevate the level of care provided to patients and improve the welfare of hospitalized animals. He has also focused on exploring a novel method of understanding IV fluid behaviour in cats. IV fluids are one of the most common treatments given to a wide range of hospitalized animals. Cats are at particular risk for complications related to this treatment. Bateman's research uses an adaptation of drug behaviour and pharmacokinetics to understand fluid behaviour in order to make IV fluid administration safer for cats. These areas are his current and ongoing research focus.

In addition, his experiences and understanding of community and shelter medicine, and experiential student service learning in these environments provide him with opportunities to guide, support and collaborate with additional researchers with a primary focus on these areas.
