Chris Seymour MA VetMB DVA DipECVAA PGCert(MedEd) FHEA MRCVS EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia

After postgraduate training in anaesthesia at the University of Liverpool, Chris worked in general practice for many years, in Essex and Bedfordshire, before returning to anaesthesia. Since 2006, Chris has worked at the University of Cambridge, Royal Veterinary College, Davies Veterinary Specialists and Hamilton Specialist Referrals, before coming to work at Pride Veterinary Centre in August 2020.

Chris's areas of clinical interest include all aspects of perioperative medicine; supporting learning of both undergraduates and postgraduates (not only in the UK but across the world).

Chris enjoys pottering about in the garden and walking his three Jack Russsell Terriers in the hills. He reads a lot – mainly about European history – and also loves to try cooking new things in the kitchen.
