I qualified as a vet in 2016 in Romania and worked there as a small animal vet for two years. In 2018 I decided to move to the UK with my other half who is also a vet, to continue taking care of all furry babies. In my free time I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and cycling, but also enjoy relaxing with some cross stitching and cooking. My best friend Maus is a domestic short hair cat with sight issues, she was adopted from a Romanian village and travelled with me here. She is very spoiled and absolutely enjoys her indoor life, but also loves birdwatching in the garden.

I would like to thank Andy for looking after my rabbit Benny and being so thorough. We made the tough decision to have Benny put to sleep and both my mum and I were in tears but Andy was so lovely. I really appriecate Benny being seen to so quickly and I know he would of been well looked after when we left him. Thanks again Andy and all at Medivet xx

Our 8 1/2 year old black lab went into the vets for a yearly booster . During the visit Dr Kaitlan found a couple of lumps and advised us to have them checked out. We agreed and found they were cancerous the vets said they could remove them it is now 2 weeks since then and on today 's post op visit every thing was fine and the stitches were removed with advice on how to care for Max. We cannot speak highly of the friendly professional compassionate service we have had from the whole team. Thank you all so much Mike/Marion Burgess and Max woof woof

In the area on holiday, we found a tick on our Springer Spaniel by her eye and rang to see if they could just check it for us, very polite receptionist ho got us an appointment, we saw the vet who was very patient with our not so happy spaniel, tick removed and happy doggie parents. Hubby went to pay and was told it was complementary, what a lovely gesture , made our day. Thankyou so much.

I cannot recommend Medivets highly enough. Clementine was rushed to them on a Saturday night after being clipped by a car with two serious pelvic fractures. There was no certainty that she would recover, but after successful surgery she continues to recover well at home. Every day she is walking better and is more like her normal self. Yesterday she even reached her paw through the crate where she is resting and give our chihuahua a quick cuff as he walked past! That’s the Clementine we know and love! I’m so appreciative that they managed to save her, and were so compassionate and empathic with dealing with myself as I was utterly distraught. Their communication was superb and they stayed in constant contact to update me all the way through this. It was an awful time but the team know how much pets end up meaning to their human families, and they made an awful situation so much easier to deal with.

We had to take one of our cats there on a weekend as an emergency case and he was admitted for treatment. The vet was fantastic. She kept us updated throughout and the care was excellent.

We was away on a short break, my 4 month old puppy became very poorly with an upset tummy. Everybody was so very kind and extremely caring, I’m so very grateful to them all.
