BVetMed PhD DSAS(Orth) FRCVS
RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Orthopaedics
Angus qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 1987. After spending a year in mixed practice he went to the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh where he spent 10 years studying and teaching orthopaedics as a lecturer. Over this period he obtained a PhD on inflammatory joint disease and gained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon’s Diploma in Small Animal Orthopaedics, the highest qualification that can be obtained in this subject in the UK. In 1998 he entered private referral orthopaedic practice and in 2005 established Anderson Abercromby Veterinary Referrals with Ralph Abercromby.
Angus has published numerous articles on orthopaedics and contributed several chapters to standard orthopaedic textbooks. He has lectured extensively on all aspects of orthopaedics and is a past Chairman of the British Veterinary Orthopaedic Association. Since 2003 he has been recognized by the RCVS as a Specialist in Small Animal Orthopaedics. He has examined extensively for the RCVS at Certificate and Diploma level and in 2016 his contribution to the field of small animal orthopaedics was recognized by the award of Fellowship of this organization. This is an accolade very few other orthopaedic surgeons have attained.
