FECTU Webinar with Alex Thiemann:
Common conditions of the hoof in working and companion equids
Alex’s family owned donkeys and this led to a life- long interest in the species. She qualified from Cambridge Vet School and worked in mixed then equine practice, joining the Donkey Sanctuary in 1998, where she is now Senior Veterinary Surgeon with responsibility for advancing educational aims. Alex has a Certificate in Advanced Equine Practice, a Masters in International Animal Health from Edinburgh, and an education qualification from the Royal Vet College. Alex has worked in the UK, Europe and many countries across the world where donkeys are used for livelihoods, milk and meat, and has seen the need for better welfare globally. She hopes vets will take a better interest in donkeys and enjoy working with them.
