Alistair graduated from Bristol University in 1999. His career began in Cheshire, working in a busy mixed practice. After 2 ½ years he got itchy feet and spent a year working, travelling and snowboarding in New Zealand. Upon returning to the UK he worked for Scott-Dunn’s Equine Clinic, where he saw more horses “than he had hot dinners”! During his time there, clients included the Queen (Windsor Castle, Hampton Court and Buckingham Palace), Prince Charles and Elton John. He was also regularly on duty at Kempton, Sandown and Epsom Racecourses as well as the Guards Polo Club, the Royal Windsor Horse Show, the Hambleden Horse Trials and Point-to-Points.
Alistair’s main interest lies in the equine side of the practice particularly, dentistry and lameness. But he can be equally as happy working with cattle, with a particular interest in the control of infectious diseases of cattle, such as BVD and Johneâ’s Disease. Following the formation of the Kernow Veterinary Group in 2014, Alistair has been able to spend all of his time focusing on the large animal side of the business and, along with Ron Fraser, heads up the veterinary team of the Kernow Farm and Equine side of the practice.
