Jerry Davies graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London in 1974. He then spent two years in the Department of Surgery as a House Surgeon. After a brief spell in general practice he returned to the RVC gaining a PhD (equine gastrointestinal disease) and a Diploma in Veterinary Radiology. He held the posts of Lecturer in Veterinary Radiology and then Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Surgery.
His clinical interests and responsibilities spanned radiology, orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery in small and large animals. During this time a visit to a private multidiscipline referral clinic in Dallas sowed the seed for a similar facility in the UK. On leaving the RVC in 1989 Jerry established possibly the first small animal referral clinic in the UK. This idea evolved through the '90s culminating in the opening of the practice we now have in 1998.
Jerry is an elected member of RCVS Council, serving as President 2011-2012. He is also a member of the BVA/KC HD and ED panels and is the current Chief Scrutineer. He was awarded the BSAVA Simon Award for contributions to Small Animal Surgery in 2004.
||It was my ambition to establish a multidiscipline, private referral clinic, staffed by acknowledged specialists in the main stream, small animal disciplines. This would enable the provision of a first class service to general practitioners requiring specialist expertise and facilities for their clients' animals. As I near retirement, I am proud to see Davies Veterinary Specialists recognised by our peers, general practitioners and the public alike, as a premier small animal specialist practice in Europe.
