Eleanor has worked in cat-only practice since graduating in 2013. Originally from Ireland, she was offered a job in (then) Ireland’s only feline practice after graduation, an opportunity she knew was too good to pass up. From there she was hooked on the cat and client experience in cat-only clinics and knew she could never go into general practice! She moved to the UK from Ireland in late 2013 and has been working as a first opinion vet in a cat-only clinic in Oxford ever since. Her main interests in feline medicine are pain management and disease prevention, and she has a soft spot for geriatrics. Eleanor is passionate about helping cat owners to navigate the unique difficulties of having a cat with a chronic illness, having her own older cat with a chronic illness. In 2017 Eleanor completed the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) Feline Medicine Distance Education course and in 2018 she successfully passed the Australia and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists Feline Medicine exams. She is currently studying an additional clinical skills module in the UK to qualify to be an Advanced Practitioner in Feline Medicine in the UK. Eleanor joined FirstVet in April 2021.
