Willows are delighted to welcome Alistair Mair and Aurora Zoff to our Anaesthesia team.
BVM&S CertVA DipECVAA MRCVS
European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia
Alastair graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2001. He initially spent two years in mixed practice in Scotland before undertaking a general internship at a private referral hospital in southern England. This lead to an internship in anaesthesia at the University of Bristol, followed by a residency at the University of Glasgow.
Alastair moved to the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Sydney, Australia in April 2012 where he was employed as registrar in veterinary anaesthesia, progressing to Head of Department. He holds the RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia and is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ECVAA).
Alastair is interested in all aspects of veterinary anaesthesia, especially pulse CO-oximetry and anaesthetic record keeping. Outside work Alastair’s hobbies include learning to play the bagpipes and to speak mandarin Chinese.
Clinician in Anaesthesia
Aurora graduated from Bologna Veterinary University in Italy in 2009. After having spent some time in first opinion practice in Italy, she moved to the United Kingdom in the summer of 2011.
Thanks to a Pfizer grant awarded whilst she was in Italy, Aurora was able to spend time at the Small Animal Anaesthesia department at Liverpool University and Langford Veterinary Service at Bristol University.
She remained at the University of Liverpool as a small animal anaesthesia intern from December 2011 to March 2013, and subsequently completed an Anaesthesia Residency at Liverpool Veterinary University in 2016. She is planning to sit her board certifying exam in 2017. Aurora’s area of research has been focused on local anaesthetic blocks in small animals. Her other clinical interests include assisted ventilation, fluid therapy, and emergency and critical care.
Outside of work, Aurora enjoys cooking, hiking and has recently discovered surfing in Costa Rica. She has also recently gained her 200 hours qualification as a yoga teacher.
