Finn Seydewitz Mag.med.vet MRCVS
Joint Venture Partner and Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated from The University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, in 1998. After a short time in practice I came to England to work first at the PDSA in London before moving into mixed practice in Norfolk. In 2001 I joined a practice in Salisbury where I was in charge of the surgical department. In 2007 I joined Companion Care and opened the Winchester vet surgery. Whilst enjoying all aspects of surgery I particularly like orthopaedics and reconstructive surgery. After the surgery has grown so well over the last 6 years I decided to open a second practice in Andover with 2 colleagues. At home I like to spend time with my wife and 2 children. We have a Labrador called Josie, and a cat called Lillie.
