Cara Hatfield BVetMed AFHEA MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

Cara qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2010 and after graduating undertook an Internship with the Farm Animal Practice at the University of Edinburgh. She then spent time in Wales working as a large animal vet, with a focus on dairy cattle, before returning to her Lancashire roots and working for a local farm animal practice for four years. In 2017 Cara enrolled in the residency programme at the University of Liverpool and helped teach final year veterinary students, whilst working for the farm animal practice and assisted with more in-depth whole herd health investigations. During this time, she enrolled in postgraduate courses including the Diploma in Bovine Reproduction and the European Collage of Bovine Heath Management, which reflect her passion for cattle work.

Cara has a particular interest in bovine reproduction, transition cow management and nutrition and is always keen to help farmers reach their production goals. Cara comes with a great deal of experience from both veterinary education and practice.

Outside of work, she enjoys being in the outdoors and rambling with her Doberman Maddie, as well as keeping fit at the gym, which helps balance her new-found love of mixology!
