I have been a vet for over 10 years having graduated from Perugia University. Since moving to England in 2001 I have always worked in small animal practice. It was a dream come true opening my own practice, and made a lot easier with the support from Companion Care. Working inside Pets at Home means I get to see a lot more small furries and reptiles which is great! Our philosophy is to provide a warm and welcoming practice, where every pet gets treated like it was our own, and where clients feel like part of the family. Please feel free to come along and meet myself and the team, and see all the great facilities we have in our practice.
