Poppy Gant


American specialist of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care


Poppy graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2014. Already knowing that a career in emergency and critical care was her goal, she then completed two emergency focused internships and then spent a year working as a busy hospital Vet before embarking on a three year residency programme at the Royal Veterinary College in London. She completed her training and passed her specialist exams in 2020.

However, her specialist training is particularly useful as part of a multidisciplinary approach to severely ill patient with complex problems, such as those with life threatening infections or polytrauma.
