We are delighted to announce that we will be offering a Specialist-


dermatology service

from March 2015.

Jon Hardy


is joining Willows on a full-time basis and will be available to see

referred cases for a wide variety of dermatological problems, as well as to give telephone

advice for those cases which may not be suitable for referral.

After qualifying at Cambridge, Jon initially spent a number of years working in both small

animal practice in Surrey and in charity hospitals in the West Midlands, during which time

he developed a very keen interest in dermatology. He subsequently trained as a resident

at the RVC and went on to obtain the European Diploma in Veterinary Dermatology and

European Specialist status.

Jon is interested in all aspects of dermatology, and enjoys the challenges that are

associated with managing patients with skin disease. He is particularly interested in ear

problems as well as parasitic and allergic skin diseases, and he undertook a study on food

allergy during his residency training. Jon is delighted to be part of the Specialist team at

Willows, providing a multi-disciplinary approach and the highest standards of support and

care for our patients, owners and referring veterinary surgeons.

Jon will be involved in Willows’ CPD programme for 2015. His first evening CPD forum will

be held on Tuesday 21st April, looking at the assessment and management of chronic ear

disease. He is also hosting a dermatology Clinical Club at Willows on Wednesday 3rd June

see the CPD section of our website for further details!
