Meet the Equine Team

Dr Alec Jorgensen BVSc Cert EP


Alec trained and graduated in Bristol, U.K in 1998. Initially working in first opinion practice he then completed an equine internship at the Liphook Equine Hospital, UK. Subsequently he spent 4 four years working in the U.S.A at the University of Pennsylvania, completing a residency programme and obtaining a Certificate in Equine Practice from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and becoming a Diplomat of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (Equine Specialty).
Alec joined Hamilton Veterinary Services Equine Clinic in 2005. His primary interests are lameness, diagnostic imaging and sports medicine. Pre-purchase and sales work for both racehorses and sport horses is a large portion of his clinical work. He gets a great deal of satisfaction from his work with competition horses, (eventers, dressage and show jumpers) and in 2012 and 2013 was the team vet for the New Zealand Trans-Tasman Eventing Team.
Outside of work, Alec finds any excuse he can to be outside with his young family. This is all the better if there is a fishing rod and water involved!
