Veterinary Surgeon


Our lead vet at Abingdon Jose, joins our prestigious West London surgery following 20 years experience of working in the UK.  The first 10 years were spent in the country climate of Hertfordshire with the last 10 years in North London where his lead vet experience and knowledge has seen him develop in all areas of internal medicine including ultrasound and cardiology.  He is looking forward to engaging in further advanced ultrasound training shortly.
Jose also has a keen interest in Ophthalmology.  In fact Jose has previously worked alongside our referral ophthalmologist Barbara Gonella.
Whilst medicine based cases are a huge passion for Jose, he also boasts extremely competent soft tissue surgery skills and enjoys in patient care should non critical cases need attention overnight at the surgery.
Outside of surgery life Jose enjoys reading, travelling, sports and music.
