Ruth Dockerty BVSc MSc PhD MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2009 at the University of Liverpool. I also completed a Master’s degree in Veterinary Infection and Disease Control at Liverpool University and a PhD in Veterinary Epidemiology. My PhD thesis investigated A Multifactorial Genetic Approach to Improving Welfare in the Racing Greyhound. I am a licensed Greyhound Racecourse Veterinary Surgeon and a member of the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) Veterinary Sub-Committee. I also spent several years working as a Lecturer in the School of Veterinary Science at Liverpool University.

I worked at a busy small animal practice on the Wirral for seven years before joining Andale Veterinary Centre in June 2019. I enjoy all aspects of general practice and have a keen interest in Small Mammal Medicine.

Outside of work I enjoy swimming, pilates, yoga and spending time with friends and family. At home I have four guinea pigs, four rabbits and a rescued hare that I hand-reared.
