About Enzo Vettorato

Dr Vettorato graduated from the Veterinary University of Padua (Italy) in 2003. After completing a PhD at the same University, he moved to the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh (UK) in 2007, where he started a three years residency program in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia. In 2008, he gained the Royal Collage Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia, and he became European Veterinary Specialist in Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ECVAA) in 2010. In the same year, Dr Vettorato moved to East Anglia (UK), where he worked as Consultant Anaesthetist at Dick White Referrals and Newmarket Equine Hospital until November 2022. In 2015, Dr Vettorato became a RCVS Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and in 2021 he was awarded with the RCVS Diploma of Fellowship by Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice. Dr Vettorato is member of the Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists, author of several international publications and speaker at several courses about veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia. He has supervised and co-supervised several interns and residents, that have successfully passed the ECVAA exam. His main interests are pain management, loco-regional anaesthesia, and evaluation of quality of recovery from general anaesthesia in horses. During his free time, Dr Vettorato enjoys playing tennis, cycling, hiking with his dog and spending time with friends.
