Dr Med Vet FVH, Dip ACT, Dip ABVP Equine, Cert IAVC, MRCVS
Simon grew up on a family farm near Bern in Switzerland. After graduation from the University of Bern in 2003, Simon worked for two years in equine practice in Switzerland before moving to North America, where he completed an Internship in Large Animal Surgery and Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College (Canada), followed by a Residency in Equine Surgery, Medicine and Reproduction at Louisiana State University (USA). Since graduation Simon has published several times in peer reviewed scientific journals and presented at national and international scientific meetings.
Simon joined the Arundel Equine Hospital in 2010, becoming a partner in 2015. His areas of interest are stud medicine and all aspects of competition horse management. He has developed a particular interest in lameness diagnosis and treatment. Being married to an international dressage rider, Simon appreciates that successful management and rehabilitation of performance horses involves application of conventional and complementary treatment modalities. Hence Simon has further educated himself in equine acupuncture and chiropractic and is integrating these techniques to his treatment protocols.
Simon is a Diplomate with the American College of Theriogenologists (ACT), the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP Equine Emphasis), and the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC).
Outside work, Simon enjoys running and spending family time with his wife and daughter Florence.
