Peter Aitken BVetMed MRCVS

Practice Principal

Peter qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1984. He first worked as a small animal surgery intern at the Royal Veterinary College.  Peter then worked for several years in mixed practice in the UK and New Zealand before joining the Liphook Equine Hospital in 1990, where he worked for 5 years as a first opinion vet and surgeon.  Peter then continued to specialise in equine practice and worked once again in New Zealand and then for Three Counties Equine Hospital in Gloucestershire.

In 2004 Peter returned to settle in his native Dorset where he set up Dorset Equine Veterinary Services.

Away from work, Pete enjoys sea fishing and may be found somewhere off the Dorset coast trying to catch an elusive sea bass.

Customer Comments:

My poor horse got beaten up by our other horse last night who drove him into a corrugated iron roof, leaving him with horrid bone deep wide facial lacerations. Graham from Dorset Equine dropped everything to get someone out to him immediately (after ringing around our usual two vets, neither of whom could come until later that day, if at all!) They have done a magnificent job and were fantastically sympathetic and kind. I can thoroughly recommend them as an establishment to have the number of in your mobile phone.
