Claire McArdle

Clinician in Dermatology
  • Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Liverpool University in 1991
  • RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Dermatology in 2001
  • RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Veterinary Dermatology

Claire graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1991. She worked in general companion animal practice in Cheshire where she gained her certificate in veterinary dermatology in 2001.

In 2004, she joined Liverpool University Veterinary Hospital to work in the dermatology referral clinic.

After leaving the university, she started seeing dermatology referral cases at several veterinary practices throughout Cheshire and South Manchester.

Claire takes a particular interest in allergic skin disease which forms a large part of her caseload. She performs intra-dermal allergen testing and formulates personalised treatment plans for her patients who often require long term therapies.

Claire also frequently attends Manchester Airport as an Official Veterinarian to deal with pets travelling abroad. She sometimes wishes she was boarding the aircraft at the same time as she enjoys foreign travel. France and America are her favourite destinations.
