  • Meet Our Staff

  • Field Equine Vets is a newly established equine practice based in Blakedown, which developed from Clent Hills Equine LLP. All of our staff have worked for many years together and pride ourselves on providing the highest standards of veterinary care is a friendly, conscientious and caring way.

    All of our staff either ride or own horses themselves and this puts them in the perfect position to advise owners when it comes to their horse's care.

    We are very fortunate that we have close working relationships with a number of recognised specialists. These vets come to our clinic to examine cases that require more involved work up and tests. A number of more advanced surgeries are also performed, including laparoscopic cryptorchid castration and ovariectomies.

  • Alastair graduated with honours from Bristol Univeristy in 2004. He started his career at Clent Hills Veterinary Group working primarily within the equine side of the practice for over 10 years. He has a particular interest in equine medicine and is studying for a further post graduate qualification in medicine. Outside of work he is kept busy by his 2 dogs, 1 cat and overly aggressive miniature Shetland pony 'Basil'.

  • Claire Brown

    Claire graduated from the University of Bristol in 2001. In October 2001 she moved to Worcester and started work at a small animal and equine practice.
