Dr Sally Argyle
Following my qualification as a veterinary surgeon I spent a short period of time working in a mixed mainly small animal practice. I was then able to concentrate on small animal internal medicine (with a particular interest in cardiology) at Glasgow University Veterinary School for a further two years. I then moved into a more research-focused role to complete a PhD entitled Canine Vasculature: a study of alpha1-adrenoreceptors and heart failure; in the Institute of Biomedical and Life Sciences at Glasgow University. Subsequently I took up the position of Lecturer in Veterinary Pharmacology back at the Veterinary School in Glasgow. During this time I continued to be interested in cardiovascular disease but also became interested in the use of antimicrobials and particularly in the rational use of antimicrobials and antimicrobial resistance. I am currently Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. This is a post that I have held since May 2006.
