Chris is Branch Partner of the Harmans Water Surgery. He joined Kynoch Vets towards the end of 2014 having worked initially for a year as a mixed farm and small animal vet in Lincolnshire after qualifying from the Royal Veterinary College in 2009. Thereafter he worked as a small animal vet in Newmarket, Suffolk for 3 and a half years.
His main areas of interest are internal medicine and geriatric cats.
Outside of work he enjoys badminton, football, swimming and cycling, but especially spending time in the great outdoors with his family – his wife Laura (also a vet), their young daughter Isla, Lily the ‘Springador’ and Lola the special cat.
Ivan has worked at Kynoch Vets since 1999, and first started running rabbit clinics for local rabbit shelters in 2002.
Since then he has been seeing both first and second opinion rabbit medicine and surgical cases. Ivan advised on the development of a brand new range of anaesthetic devices (v-gels) for rabbits as well as dogs, cats and other small and large animals, and has been the lead vet in their clinical trials and research since 2008.
Ivan teaches rabbit anaesthesia and surgical and medical rabbit management in the UK and USA, most recently at the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas and the Rabbit Welfare Conference at the Royal Veterinary College in London. He likes to teach ‘real world’ techniques that are immediately applicable in a general practice setting — making rabbit cases enjoyable and rewarding.
In his spare time, Ivan keeps tropical fish – as they tend not to get sick and don’t need treatment often!
