Nuala Summerfield

Nuala graduated from the University of Edinburgh Veterinary School, after which she completed a residency in Veterinary Cardiology at the University of Pennsylvania, USA. Since returning to the UK, she has spent the past 15 years working as a veterinary cardiologist in both academia and private practice.


Nuala is passionate about teaching and is actively involved in many cardiology CPD courses for vets both in UK and abroad. Nuala also has a strong interest in clinical cardiology, in particular canine acquired heart disease and congestive failure management.


Through her wealth of experience of working closely with vets in practice, Nuala recognised the need to make specialist veterinary healthcare more easily accessible and available. To address this need, Nuala created Virtual Veterinary Specialists (VVS). VVS uses patented technology to provide a unique, simple and efficient way for vets in practice to access highly qualified and experienced specialists on-demand. VVS empowers vets who would like to be more involved in the work-up and management of their own cases in-house, under the real-time guidance of a VVS specialist.
