David Kayes Biography

I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2017 and stayed in Edinburgh to work at a general small animal practice. I returned to the R(D)SVS in June 2020 to undertake a rotating small animal internship before being offered a position as a resident in 2021. Outside of work I enjoy a variety of sports and like to spend time outdoors. I grew up in Kenya and still have a love for Africa and the amazing wildlife there.
