Who created Virtual Veterinary Specialists?
Nuala Summerfield, Founder and Director

RCVS, European and American Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology
Nuala is a veterinary cardiologist and has spent the past 15 years working in both academia and private practice. During this time, she recognised the need to make specialist veterinary healthcare more accessible to first opinion Vets wanting to diagnose and manage more of their own cases in-house. Seeing the opportunity to do this through a real-time, collaborative and educational digital platform, Nuala created VVS, together with her co-founder Rafe.
