Andrew Francis of South Coast Cardiology. Andrew comes to us with his specialist knowledge and equipment rather than clients having to travel to referral centres.

Andrew started out in Mixed practice in North Cornwall before leaving the beach behind and moving to the beautiful city of Edinburgh to complete his Specialist Training in small animal veterinary cardiology. Since being awarded the ECVIM-CA diploma in Small Animal Cardiology in 2013 he has worked in Specialist referral practice. First as Head of Cardiology at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists, then four years ago, he set up South Coast Cardiology to provide visiting specialist veterinary cardiac care to dogs and cats across the South of England. He is an EBVS® European Veterinary Specialist in Small Animal Cardiology, a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology, and a member of The British College of Veterinary Specialists.
