Alice Bird

Personal profile

Alice graduated from Cambridge in 2009 and soon after started an equine internship at Bell Equine in Kent. Much of Alice’s time during her internship was taken up anaesthetising a large surgical case load as well as intensive care of many post-operative colic’s and neonates. Following her internship Alice stayed on at Bell Equine as an ambulatory vet for 3 and half years before returning to Cambridge in 2014 to undertake a residency in anaesthesia.

Alice is particularly interested in the management of patients with gastrointestinal catastrophes, as well as encouraging the development of our undergraduate students in the area of anaesthesia and pain management.
