RCVS Diplomate and Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology
ECVIM Diplomate and Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine
After qualifying from the University of Zaragoza in Spain, Domingo completed an internship at the Animal Medical Centre (Manchester) and worked in two large hospitals within the UK. He joined the University of Bristol as a resident in 2006. He underwent a 3-year specialist training programme in Small Animal Internal Medicine followed by a 4-year programme in Veterinary Cardiology, which led him to become a double diplomate and specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine (ECVIM) and Veterinary Cardiology (RCVS). He stayed at the University of Bristol Small Animal Hospital until 2016 as a clinician and head of the Cardiorespiratory service. After 18-months at a private practice, he joined Southfields Veterinary Specialists as Head of Cardiology and Cardiopulmonary Service.
Domingo has published many scientific papers and has written book chapters in both Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine. He has also spoken widely at national and international conferences. He is a visiting lecturer in Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine at the Catholic University of Valencia and is completing a PhD programme studying the cardiovascular and arrhythmogenic effects of a protozoal organism. Domingo’s main areas of interests are myocarditis, arrhythmias and interventional procedures.
Outside work Domingo enjoys reading, travelling, playing tennis and spending time with his family. Domingo has a dog (Mayo) and a cat (Furo). Mayo, who is now three years old, was born with a heart defect and had key-hole surgery performed by Domingo and the rest of the cardio team during his time at the University of Bristol. Mayo is currently a happy Bichon Frise who loves running like mad in the park and is expected to live a long and happy life!
