Ben Harris

Ben graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2002. He spent 7 years in private veterinary practice in London developing his interest and skills in internal medicine and attaining the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2008.

Seeking to specialise further in internal medicine, Ben completed a residency in small animal medicine at Cambridge in 2012 before moving to Northwest Veterinary Specialists. Ben’s interests within the wider scope of medicine include critical care, uronephrology, hepatology, infectious and immune-mediated disease with ongoing research into canine liver disease collaborating with six universities and a prospective study of canine herpesvirus.

Ben is a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and an RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine.

At Northwest Veterinary Specialists our European and RCVS Recognised Specialists in internal medicine are supported by diplomate standards in anaesthesia, oncology, neurology, soft tissue surgery and cardiology. Our nurses are service-specific medicine nurses – all RCVS registered and many have  further qualifications. Our patients are cared for throughout the night by MRCVS veterinary interns and nurses. Staffing levels are increased in response to increased patient demands, so that care is never compromised. We have extensive on-site facilities and superb imaging capabilities, including ultrasonography, MRI, CT and fluoroscopy. The team’s endoscopy experience is extensive, having performed thousands of endoscopies.

We hold twice daily ward rounds facilitating clinical case discussions between internal medicine, anaesthesia, neurology and oncology. Further case conferences are held for long-stay inpatients and critical patients to ensure a multi-disciplinary discussion of our more complex patients. It is not only our facilities, but our dedicated colleagues that allow us to offer the highest standards of internal medicine care 7 days a week.

If you would like your pet to be referred to NWVS, speak to your vet who can arrange this directly with us.
