I am a graduate of Glasgow Veterinary School with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. Following further formal study and examination by the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies I was awarded The General Practitioner’s Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2010. I recently returned to my love of studying and in 2017 following examination achieved The General Practitioner’s Certificate in Cardiology. My job as a Veterinary Surgeon is fun, challenging, and extremely interesting. I practice holistic veterinary medicine, this means that I like to look at the 'whole animal' including their diet, lifestyle and emotional well-being, as opposed to just focusing in on the disease or injury alone. I love my career as a Veterinary Surgeon and the ability it gives me to always be developing new skills and constantly learning. My main areas of clinical interest include endoscopic procedures and surgery; and cardiology (the study of the heart and lung systems). I also run The Clinic's Veterinary Acupuncture service and am a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists. I live in Reading with my wife Rebecca, sons Alexander, Rex and Max and my Battersea Bull Terrier Pumpkin.
