  • Dr Alistair Newbould BVM&S, MVM MANZCVS (Small Animal Radiology)

    Alistair is a graduate of Edinburgh University Veterinary School, emigrating to New Zealand in 1985. He is the practice founder and principal. His clinical interests include imaging (radiography and ultrasound), cardiology and surgery. Outside of work two of his main passions are motorcycling and skiing. It is with very great pleasure we announce that Alistair has successfully passed the required membership examinations (written, oral and practical) to gain membership of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Radiology. He has prepared and studied for these rigorous examinations in addition to his normal long working hours. We are all very proud of his achievements.

She has proven to be a great asset to the team and has quickly become a firm favourite with many clients and their pets. Michelle recently completed her Masters of Veterinary Medicine and clinically has a particular interest in dermatology, internal medicine and canine behaviour. Outside of work, Michelle enjoys playing the piano, attempting pilates and exploring the beautiful local beaches with her husband, Lucas, and golden retriever, Lily.

  • Dr Alison Myers BVSc MVM

    Alison Myers graduated from Massey University in 1997 and started her veterinary career in a busy mixed practice in Stratford, Taranaki. Four years later she moved to the UK working in small animal practice honing her clinical skills and taking advantage of the continuing education opportunities. She returned to New Zealand in 2004 and has been happily settled in Dunedin ever since. She has a special interest in ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery and neurology. Whilst working full time she studied towards her Masters in Veterinary Science which she attained in 2015. Outside of work she enjoys camping, cycling and family fun with her husband Dean, daughter Amelia and two cats; Mo and Pretzel. Both cats came through this clinic needing a home.

  • Dr Yasmin Ford

    Yasmin graduated from the University of Nottingham England in 2019 and moved straight to Dunedin from the UK to join us at Humanimals. Currently she is exploring her interests as she starts her veterinary career. Outside of work Yasmin enjoys hiking and baking. She has jointed one of our other nurses at cross fit training – balancing this off with her great first attempt at Rocky Road cakes. We can all attest to their deliciousness. We are delighted to have Yasmin join us and she has fitted in so well already, please make her feel welcome.
