RCVS Recognized Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology
Kieran graduated from the University of Bristol in 2005 with degrees in Zoology and Veterinary Science. He worked in primary care practice for 6-years and developed an interest in soft tissue surgery and cardiology. He then undertook a Residency and concurrent Master’s degree in Cardiology at the Royal Veterinary College, and is a Diplomate of the American and European Colleges of Veterinary Internal Medicine, and an RCVS Recognized Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology. He has worked in private referral practice and academia, and is now Clinical Director at Eastcott Veterinary Referrals in the UK, part of the Linnaeus group. Over the last decade, he has helped to pioneer a number of interventional cardiology techniques, including transpulmonary stent angioplasty for dogs with challenging pulmonic stenosis morphology, trans-atrial stent placement for neoplastic compression of the vena cava, and transcatheter edge-to-edge repair for dogs with degenerative mitral valve disease. In addition, he is experienced in other interventional vascular surgery, such as intra-hepatic porto-systemic shunt attenuation and intra-arterial chemotherapy and embolization. He has held a number of clinical research grants and is currently working on non-contract heart rate measurement in companion species. He has spoken all over the world on interventional techniques and a variety of topics in cardiology. At home, he is supported by his brilliant family, a Cockapoo who is in denial about the Spaniel genetics, and a cat called Gordon.
