Boarded in Cardiology
Dr Inaki (pronounced in-ya-ki) Prado Checa is a veterinary cardiologist who first graduated from the University of León (Spain) in 2013. Following a rotating internship at his home university, he moved to the UK, where he worked for a couple of years as a general practice vet, doing primarily emergency work.
Following a rotating internship at Cambridge University and a cardiorespiratory specialty internship at Edinburgh University, he underwent a veterinary cardiology residency training programme between the Royal Veterinary College in London and Langford Vets (Bristol University), after which he became a Diplomate in Veterinary Cardiology through the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
Inaki enjoys all aspects of veterinary cardiology, although he has a keen interest in echocardiography, arrhythmias and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (also known as Boxer cardiomyopathy).
Outside of work, Inaki enjoys doing sports, travelling and salsa and bachata dancing!
