Alan graduated from University College Dublin in 2016, and moved over to the U.K after he qualified. He originally worked in mixed animal practice for a number of years on the beautiful North Cornwall/Devon coast treating all animals great and small. He has since moved to London and started working as an emergency and critical care vet treating animals that require urgent attention, and has found this to be a challenging but very rewarding career path. He also owns a cat, called Marvin, whom he rescued about 4 years ago. Alan joined FirstVet in September 2020.
