Alison Holdam BVM&S MRCVS

Having been born and brought up in North Wales, I spent a year volunteering at an orphanage in Romania, before going on to do my veterinary training at Edinburgh University. After gaining experience in various roles, including large and small animal work, charitable work overseas and government veterinary work, I returned in 2004 to where my heart lies – North Wales and small animal work.

I have a passion for all animals, the natural world, animal welfare and conservation. I strive to treat all animals to the best of my ability and as if they were my own. I have a keen interest in the management of chronic pain and treatment utilising a holistic approach, to which end I have trained in veterinary acupuncture. I am committed to providing effective geriatric, palliative and end of life care.

Outside of work my time is dedicated to my two wonderful children, who are six and seven years old, and to passing on to them my love and respect of the natural world and animal kingdom. The children very much enjoy helping me care for the wildlife casualties which are often brought home for treatment and rehabilitation, something we consider a privilege (although our resident pets don’t always agree!).
