andrewAndrew Denning BVetMed CertVR DVDI MRCVS Consultant

Andrew has always been interested in diagnostic imaging - looking into the body with x-rays or ultrasound. Andrew provides a diagnostic imaging referral service for other veterinary surgeons as well as seeing patients for ultrasound and for CT at New Priory Vets Brighton. Andrew provides a radiology film reading service for veterinary surgeons throughout the UK and a mobile ultrasound service for practices within 30 miles of Brighton.

Andrew gained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate in Veterinary Radiology in 1991 and after a gruelling 6 year programme of additional training gained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Diploma in Diagnostic Imaging in 2009 and is one of only a handful of recognised Diagnostic imaging specialists. This allows New Priory Vets Brighton to provide a unique standard of diagnostic imaging for pets in the local area. Andrew has published articles on diagnostic imaging in a leading continuing education journal for veterinary surgeons and has presented lectures on diagnostic imaging for vets in Brighton, the South of England and for the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging.

At home Andrew is regularly exercised by his Border Collie, Daisy and Irish Wolfhound, Milligan and bossed about by cats Molly, Hazel and rabbit Rosie.
