John Mosley
Specialist in Small Animal Surgery
Orthopaedic Service

John qualified as a vet from The University of Edinburgh in 1988. After three years in mixed general practice in Lincolnshire, he moved to the Royal Veterinary College in London, where he remained for seven years, investigating the mechanisms that optimise fracture resistance in the skeleton.

Returning to the Dick Vet in 1999 to undertake a residency in small animal surgery, John was awarded his European College Diploma in 2003. He remained at the University Hospital for Small Animals, initially as a Lecturer and latterly as Senior Lecturer. John has helped to train over 15 successful small animal specialist surgeons, who now work worldwide, both in private practice and academic institutions.

John was head of the small animal surgery team at The University of Edinburgh for 15 years, until leaving to join the VSS team in 2019. John is interested in all aspects of canine and feline orthopaedic disease, and has a particular interest in the management of complex fractures. Outside of work, John breeds and shows pedigree Hebridean sheep, and shares the sofa with two Labradors and a Hungarian Vizsla, all three of which are useless at herding sheep.
