Silvia Ruiz DVM, MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

"I am one of the Emergency Vets.  I graduated at the University of Zaragoza, Spain in 1998.  I have a keen interest in the challenges and unpredictability of the emergency cases, and have been a dedicated Small Animal Emergency Vet since 2004.  I joined the 608 night team in 2010.  I gained the General Practitioner Certificate in Emergency Medicine and Surgery in 2017, a specialist qualification from the ESPVS (European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies).

Since 2014, I have enjoyed the best of both worlds, Sunny Spain and Rainy England, commuting to work from Spain one week in three.  I have two sons and a cat that enjoys camping in a caravan.  My many hobbies include scuba diving and writing screenplays; I hope to see one of my movies on the big screen one day!"
