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.

My daughter advised us to use your practice having changed her own dog to you some time ago. We arrived from France with four dogs, one of which has numerous 'issues' and requires medications on a regular basis. The surgery have been so helpful with all the changing out of these medicines from French to the UK equivalent and with issuing prescriptions. Three of our dogs were due their annual boosters and the health checks that were performed at that time were excellent, very thorough and the vet personally gave us his findings from the checks for each animal. We are so pleased to have found our animals a practice that we trust. Having been with our French vet for the past 10 years, and regularly there for our one dog in particular, we were very worried about sourcing a practice that we felt at ease with and with only a short time to do so. We thank you, the practice and my daughter for making the transition such a comfortable and simple experience.
