Dr Chunekamrai fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming an animal doctor as she was admitted into the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kasetsart University. On graduation she received a scholarship to further her studies at Cornell University in the USA. Her research and interests were in equine medicine and surgery, the field in which she based her practice on her return to Thailand.
In addition to her two practices, The Animal Farm Veterinary Hospital, a small animal practice in Bangkok and the Horsepital Equine Surgery (www.thehorsepital.com), the first equine hospital in Thailand, she has founded the Lampang Pony Welfare Organization and Clinic operating in northern Thailand. It is now registered as the Lampang Pony Welfare Foundation (www.lampangponywelfare.org) and expanded to include the formation of the Cambodia Pony Welfare Organization (www.cambodiaponywelfare.com) in 2008.
