Yoav Alony-Gilboa

DVM CertSHP MRCVS
Director, Specialist (Isr) Small Ruminant Health & Production

After graduating in 1996 from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, Yoav spent 7 years working in a 38 vets farm practice in Israel. In 2003 he got fed up with the sun and decided to move to the UK with his young family where for 5 years he worked as a Senior Farm Clinician at the Royal Veterinary College, London.

In 2008 he joined Friars Moor farm vets team where he enjoys all aspects of progressive farm work but admits to have a strange fascination with milking sheep and goats. He holds a RCVS certificate in Sheep Health and Production and is a recognised Israeli Specialist in Small Ruminant Health & Production.

During his spare time he practices Tai Chi and loves spending time with his wife and two children, their two cats ‘Layla’ and ‘Messy’ and their accident prone Springer Spaniel,‘Chilli’.


We all love our pets and, for 18 years, Friars Moor Veterinary Practice in Sturminster Newton has been giving me the confidence that I was doing the very best I could for mine.
