Following a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Training Scholarship, he obtained a Masters degree in Immunology in 1995 and a PhD in 2000. He joined Davies Veterinary Specialists in 1998 to provide medical referral services. He was founding Chairman of the Small Animal Medicine Society which held its inaugural meeting in 2005 and was an Associate Editor of Journal of Small Animal Practice from 2006-2010.

He has been an examiner for the European and RCVS Diplomas in Small Animal Medicine and Chief Examiner for the RCVS Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Nursing.

In 2009 he was awarded the BSAVA Melton Prize for meritorious contributions to small animal practice.  He was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice (MCCP) in 2017.

In 2010 Clive took over from Dr Jerry Davies as Managing Director, initially combining clinical and management responsibilities.
