Mickey Tivers


Mickey graduated from the University of Bristol in 2002. He finished a residency in small animal surgery at the RVC in 2008 and became a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2009. He undertook a PhD on congenital portosystemic shunts in dogs, also at the RVC. Mickey has worked in private referral practice and he was a Senior Lecturer in Small Animal Surgery at Bristol Veterinary School. He is currently head of surgery at Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield.

Mickey’s main area of clinical and research expertise is in congenital portosystemic shunts and he has published widely on the subject. He also had particular interests in brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) and abdominal surgery, although he enjoys all aspects of soft tissue surgery.

Mickey is passionate about providing an excellent and caring service to owners. He also likes to make work as enjoyable as possible for his colleagues and himself!
