Liverpool Veterinary Surgeon Megan Brannigan

Dr. Megan Brannigan- BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Director

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1997. After spending a year doing mixed practice in Hay-on-Wye, I came back, and have been a small animal vet in Liverpool ever since. I enjoy all small animal medicine and surgery, but particularly cardiology, oncology (cancer treatment), pain management, and dog behaviour.

I also have a strong interest in small mammal medicine, especially ferrets and I am proud to be a Rabbit Welfare Association friendly vet. Having my own practice has allowed me to get to know my patients well, and my clients like seeing the same person each time they come into the surgery. As well as spending time with my own pets, I’m interested in wildlife and landscape photography, hiking and wine tasting.

David Donovan BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

David started work in July 2012 straight after he graduated from Liverpool University. Megan has known David since he was 17 years old, and as a vet student, he often came to see practice with us. He's always known that he wanted to be a small animal vet and he was delighted to be able to join our team! He has a cat called Elmo at home. David has a keen interest in pain management, dermatology and now does most of our orthopaedics procedures. He mainly works at the Walton Vale surgery now, but is sometimes spotted at Old Swan.

Yvette Morrison

Head Veterinary Nurse

I am a qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse and have been working in practice since 2003 and have been qualified since 2008. I have a little boy called Charlie who is my little cheeky monkey. I would love to own a monkey especially an orangutan as I just love them. I enjoy nursing in-patients and the medical side of nursing. I am now the Head Vet nurse at our sister practice Prescot Companion Care, but occasionally still help at Old Swan.
