Dr. Hobi graduated from the Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich, Switzerland in 2007. After an assistance time of two years and a doctoral thesis about hypersensitivity disorders in cats he completed a 15-month internship in a large small animal hospital in Switzerland. To come his great passion a bit closer he then absolved a three-year specialization in animal dermatology at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. During this time he not only met lovely Peter and Julia but unfortunately also some unpopular parasites and microorganisms which now also belong to his friendship circle.

Beside this, Stefan was also involved in teaching of students, interns and doctoral students. He also gave dermatology lectures to private practitioners all over the world most outstandingly at a symposium of the World Congress in Veterinary Dermatology in Vancouver, Canada.

He has authored and published multiple articles and case reports in veterinary and human dermatology journals and is also a reviewer of the international Veterinary Dermatology journal.

Dr Hobi emphasizes that it is very important to him not only taking care about all the different skin and ear problems but also to make those diseases more understandable for the owners.

Veterinary dermatology does not only mean glucocorticoids and antibiotics but also a wide range of other possibilities and procedures similar to human medicine, which he now wants to bring to Hong Kong.

As typical Swiss Stefan loves eating cheese and chocolate but to stay in good shape he also does some sports. In addition he enjoys going to the cinema, spending some time with his friends and family members, and travelling around.
