David Edwards

Senior Veterinary Nurse


Read David Edwards bio

I have worked in veterinary medicine since 1989 and despite being a reasonably accomplished fencer and a Black Belt 2nd Dan martial arts instructor, without a doubt one of the proudest moments of my life was becoming a qualified veterinary nurse in 1993.

I am also a clinical coach so this means I have the privilege of passing on my knowledge and experience to student nurses and therefore play a role in shaping the future of veterinary nursing by ensuring that my high standards of patient care are continued.

I have a keen interest in anaesthesia and surgical work but my main compassion is with our feline companions. I currently have 6 of my own (hazard of the job!). I am constantly educating the team on best cat interaction and handling techniques as well as working together towards achieving an accredited silver cat friendly clinic award via the ISFM.
