We would like to introduce a new member of the Veterinary Department. Alison Reed started working at the Sanctuary in September as a part-time vet.
Ali says… “Hi, My main role is to provide veterinary cover for Woods Farm but I also get involved with the anaesthesia, diagnostic imaging (X-rays, etc) and education at the Veterinary Hospital at Slade Farm. I qualified at Edinburgh in 2003 and have worked in equine practice ever since. I have helped provide the veterinary care at Town Barton Farm since 2004 so I'm not a complete donkey novice! I live to the north of Dartmoor with my husband Darren, who is a farmer, our two sons, Leo and Seb, 320 cattle, 700 sheep, a dog, 2 chickens and 2 cats. No donkeys as yet but I'm working on it! I'm delighted to be part of the fantastic veterinary team at the Sanctuary and look forward to playing my part in improving the lives of donkeys and mules.”
