Dr Hannah Bowen

BVSc CertAVP (equine medicine) MRCVS

Originally from the UK, Hannah qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Bristol and worked in mixed animal and then first opinion equine practice before undertaking an 18-month internship at the Liphook Equine Hospital. Here she gained experience and training in anesthesia, equine medicine and lameness diagnostics working alongside recognised equine veterinary specialists on a predominately pleasure and sports horse caseload. She complimented this by following on with a six month breeding season internship at Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital in Victoria. This was a fantastic opportunity to continue to develop skills and experience working with predominantly thoroughbred and standardbred horses. She was involved with all areas of Vet work in this busy practice including routine broodmare management, advanced breeding technologies, stud farm medicine, anesthesia, intensive neonatal medicine and critical care.

After traveling through Australia and New Zealand for three months she decided the to-do & to-see lists were long enough to warrant a permanent move to NZ in 2010. She worked at Matamata Veterinary Services Equine Clinic where she continued to develop her particular interests in equine internal medicine and anesthesia, completing her RCVS Certificate in advanced veterinary practice (equine medicine) in 2014.

When Hannah is not caring for your horses she enjoys looking after and spending time with her family, keeping active so she can keep up with her two busy sons and tramping in our beautiful country.
