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 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 qualified from the University of Leon, Spain in 2017. Since then I've worked in small animal practices in Spain and started working for Medivet in 2018. I enjoy all aspects of being a small animal veterinary surgeon, but I have a particular interest in learning more about surgery. In my spare time I like to travel and explore the UK and Europe. At home I also have a basque shepherd dog called Logan and a guinea pig called Troja.

Originally from Spain, I qualified from the University of Leon in 2017 before moving to the UK. I soon moved to Gloucester where I did an internship in a small animal practice before joining Medivet in Dorset in February 2018. I particularly enjoy internal medicine. In my spare time I love travelling around Europe and discovering new places. I have three lovely dogs; a labrador cross collie called Leon, a labrador called Duna and a Persian cross called Roque. They all live in Spain and I miss them very much.

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

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 take our two dogs here. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Very caring, thorough and never rushed. The surgery is well equipped (we were given a tour when we first registered our dogs here). And there's plenty of parking. I have no hesitation recommending them.

I can't fault the Heathlands hospital. The staff are very knowledgeable and caring. There is plenty of parking. My dog has always received wonderful care here and we have always had things explained in ways that we understand.
