Dr Allison Bird

I have been part of the Ourvets Halswell Team since early 2021.

I graduated from Onderstepoort (University of Pretoria) in South Africa in 2012 and started my career in companion animal practice in Cape Town.

I headed to New Zealand in 2014 for a three month holiday but fell in love with the country and decided to make it a permanent change.

I started out in mixed animal practice in New Zealand before settling back into a companion animal role, initially as a locum for a few of the local VetPartners clinics and then as a permanent member of the Halswell team.

I am now happily settled in Canterbury with my partner Albert and our pets Pickle (cat) and Kaycee (dog) and in my spare time I enjoy travelling, crossfit, walking the dog, running, stand up paddle boarding in summer and skiing in winter.
