Mr Chris Calder

Lecturer in Equine Practice


I graduated from The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in July 2005.  I first worked in a mixed practice, with most of my time dedicated at their Equine site, before moving into solely Equine Practice in 2007.  I moved back to Edinburgh in 2010 to a mixed practice once again but this time to take the role as their Equine Vet and be responsible for the Equine side of this Practice.  In 2015 I returned to the Dick Vet to start my role as Lecturer in Equine Practice. My main duties are within the ambulatory team seeing a wide range of first opinion cases as well as involvement with teaching students both out in the field situation as well as lectures and tutorials throughout their years back on site at the Vet School.  I have a wide range of interests across Equine Veterinary Medicine, which is why I enjoy the variety that comes with first opinion practice.
