Dr Emma Love


BVSc Veterinary Science
BSc Veterinary Nursing and Bioveterinary Science

Emma qualified as a vet from Glasgow University in July 2000 and spent a year as an Intern at Edinburgh University before locuming in small animal practice and then moving to Bristol where she completed a Residency in veterinary anaesthesia. She became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2005, and passed the RCVS DVA examination in 2006 before becoming an RCVS Specialist in this area in 2010. She was appointed as an academic member of staff in 2004 and completed my PhD between 2007-2009 while also working on clinics and teaching.
Teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students is an important and enjoyable part of my role. She is the Programme Director for the new Accelerated Graduate Entry BVSc, Year 3 BVSc Lead and Unit Organiser of the 2nd year BSc (VNBS) Anaesthesia and Fluid Therapy Unit. She’s involved in delivering CPD to vets and nurses and bring a practical and realistic approach to anaesthesia and analgesia in veterinary practice. She’s been invited to speak at international conferences including the World Congress of Veterinary Anaesthesia in Glasgow in 2009 and the British Equine Veterinary Association Congresses in 2008, 2013 & 2016. On the “One Health” theme she’s also delivered lectures to medics and vets at a meeting on pain in non-verbal species at the Royal Society of Medicine.
She’s involved in clinical work and particularly enjoy working with dogs, horses and farm animals. The variety of her role is one of the best aspects for her; her clinical and research work informs her teaching activities
