Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon I qualified from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Timisoara, Romania in 2004, and in 2006 gained a Master of Science degree in Veterinary Epidemiology. In April 2007, I moved to the UK along with my wife Larissa and our three Bull Terriers.
Before becoming Joint Venture Partner at Companion Care Veterinary surgery in Wakefield, I spent 3 years as a veterinary surgeon at Companion Care Huddersfield surgery, dealing with surgical caseloads and also working closely with local dog breeders. After a short spell as Practice owner at Companion Care Vets Wakefield I had the opportunity to return to Huddersfield as practice owner. I enjoy all aspects of small animal veterinary medicine, but my main interests are in small animal surgery and small animal reproduction. Currently I am studying towards a Certificate in Small Animal Surgery.
I am also very much involved in the dog world, being Chairman of Yorkshire Bull Terrier Club and member of ten Bull Terrier Clubs across the UK. I started breeding Bull Terriers in 2002, but also very much enjoy showing and judging Bull Terriers. I am a great believer in responsible dog breeding and promote highly the health testing for all breeds. Our breeding programme is small, consisting in a litter of puppies every 2 or 3 years, and it’s aimed to produce healthy and quality puppies that will make fantastic family pets.
Please do come and meet us in our Huddersfield surgery - we can show you around and demonstrate what we have to offer. I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!
I qualified in 2006 from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Timisoara, Romania and in April 2007 moved to the UK with my husband Tavi and our three Bull Terriers. Initially I worked as vet in a small animal practice in Doncaster. Between May 2008 and February 2009, when our daughter was born, I was doing vet locum cover across West and South Yorkshire. After 6 months maternity leave I returned as a vet in a small animal practice. In August 2011 I became Joint Venture Partner at Companion Care Vets Wakefield. In July 2013 I decided to leave Companion Care Vets Wakefield and joined Tavi at Companion Care Vets Huddersfield.
I enjoy all aspects of veterinary work, with a particular interest in medical cases. Together with Tavi, I attend to dog shows am involved in Bull Terriers as joint member of ten Bull Terrier Clubs across the UK.
