Daniel from Local Vets



I always wanted to be a vet and in my university years, I worked and volunteered in different clinics where my mentors inspired me to be the best vet I could be, they always believed in me and pushed me to be my best. I graduated in 2019 from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest. I practiced as a vet for a year while volunteering in a local animal shelter in Romania, there I worked as part of a neutering program. In 2020 I finally made another dream come true and moved to the UK because I knew it was the best place to develop my skills as a vet, get the right experience and share my love for animals with others. After working in a busy GP practice I decided to join Local Vets to focus more on brachycephalic medicine and more complex procedures. In my spare time, I love exploring new places, traveling around the country, hiking, and meeting new people, I am really looking forward to meeting all the pets and clients at Local Vets.

Rosa meet the team



I graduated in 2016 in Bucharest, Romania. I knew I wanted to be a vet when I saved a cat that was injured and looked after her, only a few days before applying for superior studies. That was my turnover point. I love to help animals in need and to offer them all my support and love and I will go the extra mile to make them feel comfortable. My passions outside the clinic are singing and shopping and I love to spend time with my family and look after them.
