Mike Guilliard gained his veterinary qualifications from the University of Cambridge Veterinary School. He has worked in Nantwich, Cheshire, for most of his professional career culminating in the building of Nantwich Veterinary Hospital in 1998. In 2003 he retired as Senior Partner of the Nantwich Veterinary Group to work as a consultant. In 2011 he formed his own limited company, Mike Guilliard Orthopaedics Ltd, to work as an independant veterinary surgeon offering small animal veterinary orthopaedics to neighbouring practices and private clients.
His interest in Greyhound orthopaedics has resulted in the publication of a number of peer reviewed papers in the veterinary literature on injuries in the athletic dog. He has also authored several book chapters in veterinary orthopaedic textbooks.
The interest in racing injuries has led to some novel surgical treatments. Historic methods of managing dislocations of the digits have given unreliable outcomes but the application of external fixators, a technique first published by Mike, has dramatically improved the prognosis for a successful return to racing without amputation. More recently Mike has pioneered a new successful treatment for corns that represents a paradigm shift in the understanding and management of this very painful problem.
