I grew up in Australia and practiced there for 4 years before moving to the UK in 2017. I have an interest in all parts of general practice, everything from consulting with birds and pocket pets to surgery on our big London dogs. Outside of work I play AFL for a local team and enjoy skiing, surfing and climbing.

I've worked at Hornsey in various roles for 29 years and have loved getting to know all our local clients and pets. I have a diploma in Feline Medicine, and I’ve gained an enormous amount of experience caring for older pets. At home, I have two cats; one maine coon and a rather distinguished domestic long-haired cat.

I started as a cattery assistant and part-time receptionist and loved it so much that I went on to become a Veterinary Nurse. I particularly enjoy working with cats but I’m also known and loved by our dog visitors too. At home, I have a large collection of pets and I’m nicknamed ‘Noah’ for my ever-increasing animal family.

Victoria Gijon the Vet was a great adviser as I popped in to buy a safety muzzle to prevent my yorkie biting other female dogs. She has been such an embarrasment and is know the neighbourhood park🙄🙈By luck I mentioned I was travelling and Victoria was prompt to advise me as I was rushing to get ready to leave to prepare for my flight next day to Brazil with Lola. I presumed I did not need anything else as she already had her passport and vaccinations up to date. I WAS SO WRONG! After confirming everything I managed to postpone flight and get this done. If it was not for Victoria, I would have been in a lot of trouble with my lola when arriving in Brazil. Came back next day to proceed with paperwork and they managed to fit me in their busy schedule. Great Job! Thank you. 😊

I always feel in safe hands at Hornsey Vets, Victoria is amazing. It’s great that you can see the same vet and build up a great understanding of one and another and they become familiar to the pet. Seeing the same faces is very important when I have to visit the vets. This is what makes them special as it’s not found in other practices .

This latest appointment was via Zoom due to the current situation, and although more challenging in someways, it was less so in others (my cat does not travel well or appreciate being handled). The consultation was thorough, collaborative and course of treatment (and possible subsequent treatments) explained clearly and kindly. Medication was then delivered to me the following day (I could have gone to collect it that day), and my cat started to respond positively to the treatment on day two and is now feeling much better. Thank you.

Excellent - highly recommend. Wonderful, friendly, helpful and professional staff who are great with my anxious cat, super clean premises and easy to get an appointment. Have been going to them for years now and am very happy. Gave excellent advice on looking after a kitten when I asked at her first check up, which was super thorough and has been invaluable.

The receptionists are friendly. The vet I saw was very caring, chatty and friendly, she gave me good advice and put me at ease. My cat was very relaxed. It's easy to get an appointment and I got an appointment that I could attend after I'd finished work.

My vet, Victoria, constantly goes above and beyond to help my cat. She has been unbelievably kind in the time I have been with Medivet, she never rushes the appointments and is clearly very knowledgable.
