I am originally from Italy, where I studied at the University of Bologna before moving to the UK. I started working in a busy charity and then joined the Medivet family at Watford. I have always loved surgery, and achieved a Postgraduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2015 and an Advanced PG Certificate in Orthopaedic surgery in 2019. Outside work I love travelling and sports in general such as climbing and kayaking. I also have a very sweet cat at home called Marcella.

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2007 and went on to gain my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in Small Animal Medicine in 2014. I am one of the main consulting vets in Watford but also perform a lot of ultrasounds and imaging. I really enjoy talking to owners and helping their pets when they come for a heath check or if they're poorly. I know personally how much our pets are part of the family; my daughter and I dote on our two rehomed stray cats, Sebastian and Pulga.

Really friendly and knowledgable team. Brilliant when we brought one of the cats in with an injury and very supportive while we sorted our issues with our pet insurance. I feel safe with these guys looking out for our cats

Not a client but a locum nurse who has done a couple weeks working nights at medivet Watford. Just wanted to say how fantastic the vets, nursing and everyone else involved in the care and treatment of patients, the care they provide you’re fur babies has no limits. Probably one of the best practices I have worked in where the vets and nurses go above and beyond to make every patient comfortable and receive lots of cuddles TLC. Just wanted to leave this review to assure any owners their fur children’s are in the best possible hands here and will be treated like the staffs own.

Would most definitely recommend Medivet Watford, after the amount of support and kindness they have shown towards my Pug Hugo, who was treated for a huge abscess on his neck and had it drained. I can’t remember the Nurses name from our second visit (she has a paw print tattoo on her arm), but I’d like to say a Massive thank you to her for helping my boy out as he is finally back to his happy self, able to eat & sleep comfortably again 😊

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Medivet Watford for the care and compassion you showed to our beloved Elliot. He spent 5 days in hospital, where they tried everything they could to get him back home to us after a thromboembolism, but in the end there was nothing else that could be done for him. He was kept comfortable until the end, and for that I can not thank everyone enough.
