EBVS® European and RCVS-Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Surgery
Barney graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2013. After spending 18-months working at a 100% small animal practice in Portsmouth, he moved back to his hometown of Bournemouth in order to undertake a rotating internship here at SCVS. This was followed by a year spent as a rotating intern at the University of Bristol’s Langford Small Animal Hospital while studying towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Clinical Practice. Barney then returned to SCVS in July 2017 to undertake a three-year residency in small animal surgery during which time he was awarded the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice. He successfully completed his residency in July 2020 and passed the ECVS examinations to become a European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery in July 2021.
Barney maintains a keen interest in all aspects of surgery, but finds particular satisfaction in managing complex oncological cases, both performing the challenging surgeries themselves and helping owners through the often-difficult decision-making processes involved in oncological care.
Over the last few years Barney has increasingly taken on teaching and training roles within SCVS, in the local veterinary community, and both nationally and internationally to help improve and develop veterinary surgical treatment in the wider veterinary industry. To this end, he has also recently begun studying towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Veterinary Education which he is due to complete in 2024.
