Alasdair grew up on a working croft on the beautiful Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, where he developed a passion for working with horses. After graduating from Glasgow University in 2006, he began his career in a "James Herriot style" mixed practice in North Yorkshire, before moving to a large equine practice in Kent in 2009 where he developed a particular interest in how combined factors such as lameness, medical conditions and dental discomfort can affect performance in horses.
Alasdair moved with his family to the Frome area in 2015, where most recently he worked as a clinical director at B&W Equine Vets. His spare time is spent engaging in a myriad of family activities with his wife and two young daughters, and when time allows, indulging in his passions for rock climbing and music.
Alasdair holds RCVS certificates in both equine medicine and equine dentistry and is an RCVS advanced practitioner in equine medicine. He is passionate about equine dentistry and the impact that this can have on welfare, and regularly visits other veterinary clinics throughout the Southwest of England to perform advanced dental procedures.
