Freddie is a well-known Anaesthesia Specialist who has lectured nationally and internationally on many aspects of veterinary anaesthesia and is also author of a textbook on small animal anaesthesia.

Freddie graduated in Padova (Italy), and trained as veterinary anaesthetist in the UK, achieving the European Specialist status in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2003. Anaesthesia, perioperative care, and analgesia have been Freddie’s main interests since he was a student at Vet School. Freddie is particularly interested in physiology and pharmacology of anaesthetics, sedative and cardiovascular drugs.

Freddie initially worked as Anaesthesia Lecturer in Padova School of veterinary medicine, then as a Clinical Anaesthetist at the Animal Health Trust. After this he spent three years working on a research project based at the University Division of Anaesthetics of Addenbrooke's hospital, which led to his PhD. Freddie continues to collaborate in this project. Freddie joined Dick White Referrals in July 2008, to build an Anaesthesia Service able to work alongside the other Specialist disciplines. In 2012, with his colleagues from DWR, he has worked at NEH as a consultant anaesthetist.

During his working career Freddie has had the chance to develop both clinical and research projects, and many of these have resulted in publications in scientific journals. He is involved in providing continuing education in veterinary anaesthesia to vets in the UK and especially in Italy. Freddie is also the author of a handbook of small animal anaesthesia, published in Italy.
