The Team


Edward Ives


Head of Neurology
RCVS and EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology

Ed graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2007 before working in a first-opinion, small animal practice in north Essex for 5 years. This was where he developed his passion for veterinary neurology and he returned to the University of Cambridge in 2012 to complete a three-year Senior Clinical Training Scholarship in Veterinary Neurology/Neurosurgery. He then joined Anderson Moores as a clinical neurologist/neurosurgeon in June 2015.
Ed is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Neurologists and a RCVS recognised specialist in Veterinary Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Ed has lectured nationally and internationally on many aspects of veterinary neurology and is the co-author of a textbook that aims to simplify the approach to neurological cases for both students and general practitioners.
