Dr James Guthrie graduated from The University of Edinburgh in 2010 and was awarded as the best student of his class in veterinary orthopaedics. He then completed a one-year rotating internship at Northwest Surgeons; a specialist veterinary referral hospital in Cheshire. Following this, he spent two years working in a small animal hospital in Berkshire where he obtained the RCVS Advanced Veterinary Practice Certificate in Small Animal Surgery.
In 2013, James joined Fitzpatrick Referrals as a duty vet and completed a one-year surgical internship. Following this, James stayed at Fitzpatrick Referrals to pursue his goal of becoming a specialist surgeon and completed a three-year residency programme in small animal surgery. James became a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in February 2018 and shortly afterwards was recognised as a specialist in small animal surgery by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
James has also studied towards and is awaiting examination for the RCVS Advanced Veterinary Practice Certificate in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging.
He has published multiple research papers and presented his findings at national conferences.
