Philip received a veterinary degree from Cambridge University in 2003. Working initially in mixed practices in Norfolk and Dorset, he then undertook an equine internal medicine residency at the Equine Referral Hospital at the Royal Veterinary College in London where he gained the RCVS Certificate in Equine Internal Medicine.In 2011 he gained by examination the European Diploma in Equine Internal Medicine (DipECEIM) and became a European recognised specialist in Equine Internal Medicine.
Later in the same year, with co-director Andrew Wallace, he formed Buckingham Equine Vets, a first opinion equine veterinary practice. At the same time he was aware of a need of high quality specialist equine care in the region and founded Buckingham Equine Medicine Referrals.
Philip particularly interests are in equine infectious diseases, ophthalmology, gastroscopy, sarcoid removal and infectious diseases.
Much of Philip’s spare time is consumed writing scientific reports, papers and presentations. When he does find time to get into the outdoors he can be found working on his family farm, playing tennis or golf, and walking his Labrador, Grouse with his wife Katie.
