Dr Alice Brough
Viva! Veterinary Consultant
A six month stint on an intensive breed-to-finish pig unit at the age of 18 drove Alice to gear her veterinary career towards improving the welfare of farmed animals. Since graduating from the University of Edinburgh, she’s worked as a mixed practice vet in East Anglia and has spent four years as a commercial pig vet across the UK. Working as an integral part of the meat industry and witnessing daily atrocities led Alice to give up animal products altogether – it was impossible to make improvements to welfare from inside an operation driven by profit. Now, she works with Viva! to expose the realities of livestock farming and drive change via public perceptions.
