David Lloyd


RCVS and European Specialist in Equine Surgery 

Clinical Director 

David qualified from the University of Glasgow in 1994. His first job in mixed practice in Cornwall combined work and a little surfing, during these 3 years he specialised in equine practice and surgery. To further his knowledge he went on to complete an internship back at the University of Glasgow before moving to Newmarket where he spent 4 years as the surgical resident at Rossdales Equine Hospital, dealing with the racing elite! David then moved to the West Country to build the referral caseload at Bushy Equine Clinic (now B&W Equine Hospital), treating a wide range of sports horses. In 2004, David took up a surgical position at Liphook Equine Hospital and became a Partner in 2008. He qualified as a European Diplomate in Equine Surgery in 2009, and was recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a Specialist in all areas of Equine Surgery in 2010. David has extensive surgical experience in elective and emergency surgery, including complicated arthroscopic and laparoscopic procedures, laryngeal surgery, fracture repair and spinal (“wobbler”) surgery. He also lectures on wide range of surgical subjects. He maintains a keen interest in the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of neck pain, back pain, poor performance and lameness issues. In his spare time he pretends to train his spaniels and enjoys biking, skiing and the occasional hack across the Hampshire hangers, providing it incorporates a pub along the way!
