The renowned Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service in the West Midlands has expanded its acclaimed Emergency and Critical Care (ECC) service with the appointment of another leading specialist.

Linnaeus-owned Willows, which was crowned ‘Best UK Vets’ earlier this year, has welcomed ECC specialist Poppy Gant to its talented team.

Poppy, who graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2014, said she was delighted to be joining one of Europe’s leading small animal referral hospitals.

She said: “Even when I was studying at university, my ultimate goal was always to specialise in emergency and critical care.

“Immediately after graduating, I completed two emergency-focused internships and then spent a year working as a busy hospital vet before embarking on a three-year residency programme at the Royal Veterinary College in London.

“I’ve now completed my training, passed my specialist exams and I’m keen to use my skills and experience to help further develop the provision of emergency and critical care at Willows.”  

Willows’ clinical director Toby Gemmill is equally keen for Poppy to utilise her specialist skills at the Solihull-based small animal hospital.

He said: “Working in several busy hospitals means Poppy is experienced in managing a wide variety of critically ill patients.

“What’s more, her specialist training is particularly useful as part of the multidisciplinary approach offered at Willows, which really benefits the most severely ill patients with multiple, complex problems.”  

Willows offers specialist services in anaesthesia and analgesia, cardiology, clinical nutrition, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, emergency and critical care, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and spinal surgery.
