- Kevin Clifford

Kevin wanted to be a veterinary surgeon from an early age. His father, Brigadier John Clifford, was Honorary Veterinary Surgeon to HM the Queen and Kevin grew up surrounded by animals. Kevin graduated from The Royal Veterinary College in London in 1984. He has worked in small animal practice in London since then and has a wealth of experience in companion animal medicine and surgery. Having always loved the Chelsea area, Kevin founded the Brompton Veterinary Clinic on the Fulham Road in 1993 and has enjoyed being involved with many families and their pets ever since.
Kevin has been a member of the Kennel Club for 25 years and was Chief Veterinary Surgeon to the annual Discover Dogs show at Earls Court for seven years. In 2013, Kevin was appointed to the Animal Health Group, a panel of veterinary surgeons, which advises the Kennel Club on breed related health issues in dogs.
As an owner of bulldogs for many years, Kevin has a special interest in bulldog health and preventative care, with a large number of bulldogs coming to see him at the practice from all over London.
As a member of the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), Kevin also has a keen interest in feline medicine and the Brompton Veterinary Clinic is a registered ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic.
Kevin continues to live locally and is married to a Consultant Gynaecologist, with three children who keep them both busy. They share their home with Humphrey (nee Oddjob) , their lovable bulldog and Elvis, a very noisy African Grey parrot. When not at the practice, he pursues his interest in oriental textiles and is currently trying to learn Mandarin Chinese!
