Alanda Rafferty
Alanda-Rafferty
Veterinarian
I was born and schooled in England and gained two degrees in Zoology with Physiology and Osteopathy. I then did a conversion course from human to animal Osteopathy and started my own practice in human and animal osteopathy as well as working as an Osteopath in a GP’s practice. However, I only ever wanted to be a vet. I met my Irish husband Colin, in the UK, and we married in my local village in 2000 at a James Bond themed wedding. Great fun for all – with a casino at the reception and everyone dressed up in character – it was a cool day! We then honeymooned in NZ before emigrating in February 2001. After travelling around in a campervan for months we bought a house in Napier and I started at Massey Vet School and was accepted onto the course as a NZ permanent resident. At last I was going to be a vet!! My life’s Dream was going to become reality! I graduated and was accepted by VetEnt to start work in Wairoa. Wairoa is a mixed practice and I absolutely love my job. I have been in Wairoa for over 5 years now and am very happy. I love the variety of cases that I get to see on a daily basis. . I am currently studying for a Masters in Veterinary Medicine (MVM) in my spare time while working fulltime in Wairoa. My special interest in Veterinary Science is Ophthalmology. I also enjoy surgery. I have a three year old son called Teigan who delights and surprises us every day! Some of my vet work has rubbed off on him. He can often be heard talking his way through a surgery – for example “I’m going to surgery on this dog because he ate a stone and it got stuck in his intestines”. As a family we enjoy the outdoors, tramping, cycling and adventure racing. We also have a menagerie of rescued pets including a dog with 3 legs, a heading dog that is scared of sheep, various chickens, a bald lorikeet and a crazy cat.

Alistair Smith
Veterinarian
Alistair grew up on a dairy farm in Ayrshire, Scotland and graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2016.  Once he graduated he moved over to the east coast of Scotland to Angus, where he worked in mixed practice for three and half years before joining us in our Ashburton clinic. He had always been interested in working on New Zealand farms with large grass based herds and so this role is an exciting prospect for him. He has spent his whole life in agriculture and since qualifying as a vet has worked in mixed practices. He enjoys all aspects of practice and in particular tackling unnecessary losses on the farm, as happy cows make for a happy farmer. As well as tackling new challenges every day and meeting new people along with learning about different farming systems. Outside of work he enjoys playing rugby, exploring New Zealand and taking advantage of a few beers in the sun.
