Xavier Salord

Veterinary Surgeon

I qualified in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 2017. During my time as a student I was very keen to practice abroad and I had the opportunity to do several externships both in my own country and Ireland. In addition, I accomplished a fruitful Erasmus programme at the University of Ghent (Belgium).

Once qualified, I decided to move to the UK and join the excellent team at Calder Vets to expand my knowledge in Veterinary Medicine and start a new adventure.

I am enjoying a lot of disciplines of the general practice but I am especially interested in Internal Medicine and Emergency and Critical Care, areas in which I would like to focus in the future. Currently, I am working at both the Heckmondwike branch and main hospital in Dewsbury.  I'm enjoying getting to know all the clients and their pets.

Besides enjoying good company and having fun with my friends and family, I love travelling, kayaking, cooking and being in touch with any kind of creature.
