Alec Brotherton BVetMed MRCVS

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2013. After a period in mixed practice in Lincolnshire I moved to South Wales to focus on small animal practice. I then had a period of locuming around the UK and charity work abroad to further my skills before working in a large hospital practice in Gloucester for the last 3 years. I enjoy the variety of small animal practice but particularly enjoy medicine and oncology. Outside of work I enjoy watching rugby, travel and exploring the countryside.
