I've been with Medivet since 2018. Before working with Medivet I trained as a hair stylist with Toni&Guy, I worked there for six years since leaving school. I thoroughly enjoyed my time within hairdressing, learning new skills and meeting new people but my true passion is working with animals. I'm hoping to gain a wide variety of experience in all aspects of veterinary nursing. At home I have my horse called Mars, three cats called Gus, Moose and Dora and two guinea pigs named Peaches and Iris. Outside of work a big part of my free time is spent at the stables with the horses or going on dog walks. I also enjoy going to the cinema, meals out and being sociable.

We had such a bad service with another vet and came here for a second opinion and had a fantastic service so far. You have spotted things that no one else did and have kept us up to date so much so far. Would recommend

We recently had to put our Labrador to sleep 26th March 2021. Michal was compassionate with both our dog and our family, and made a very difficult situation a gentle and dignified goodbye. We cannot thank him and the team enough. We have had our two Labs with this practice for seven years and have found the team responsive, caring, friendly and efficient on every single occasion we have needed them.
