Meet the Team Bristol Filton - Paul Guckian

Paul Guckian MVB MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

Paul has been a vet for over 20 years since graduating from The University College, Dublin in 1987. In that time he has worked for small animal and equine practices in the UK. He has also travelled across Australia, which gave him the chance to work with a whole host of 'critters'.
Paul enjoys being a Veterinary Surgeon as every day is different and he feels privileged to look after pets because they are an extremely important and precious part of people’s lives.
Outside of work he enjoy the great outdoors, birdwatching and walking his dog with his partner and their two children. I also love going to the races and following the Ireland Rugby Union team.
