I am originally from Italy, where I studied at the University of Bologna before moving to the UK. I started working in a busy charity and then joined the Medivet family at Watford. I have always loved surgery, and achieved a Postgraduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2015 and an Advanced PG Certificate in Orthopaedic surgery in 2019. Outside work I love travelling and sports in general such as climbing and kayaking. I also have a very sweet cat at home called Marcella, and a very cheeky dog called Bruno.

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2007 and went on to gain my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in Small Animal Medicine in 2014. I am one of the main consulting vets in Watford but also perform a lot of ultrasounds and imaging. I really enjoy talking to owners and helping their pets when they come for a heath check or if they're poorly. I know personally how much our pets are part of the family; my children and I dote on our two rehomed stray cats, Sebastian and Pulga.

The receptionist was like a robot. If you ask a question that is not in the script, she just repeats the answer in the script. Observing her with other patients, there is no empathy, compassion or apology when mistakes were made at all. The overall impression was that if there is no money to be made, they are not interested.

I recently visited Medvet in Watford with my cat, Black, and I am extremely pleased with the experience. From the moment we arrived, the staff were welcoming and attentive, making both Black and me feel comfortable. The gorgeous doctor was exceptional. She took the time to thoroughly examine Black and explained everything in a clear and reassuring manner. Their genuine care and professionalism were evident throughout the appointment. Black, who is usually quite anxious, was surprisingly calm thanks to the gentle handling and calm environment. The clinic is well-maintained and clean, which further added to our positive experience. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service provided and would highly recommend Medvet in Watford to other pet owners. Thank you for taking such good care of Black

Thank you so much to Josh and his team at medivet. Everyone there has been so helpful and lovely. We had my little chihuahua spayed and it was a success. I was provided with lots of information before the operation and the risks involved and also given clear aftercare instructions, what to look out for and what to expect after taking her home on the day of her op. Couldn’t fault the team at medivet. Thank you all so much.

Have been going to this vets for several years due to location and have become increasingly disappointed with the service. My dog is incredibly nervous with high blood pressure and this is always exacerbated due to having to wait over 30 minutes every appointment due to them running late. Receptionists are typically incredibly rude and dismissive and make the whole experience very unpleasant for myself and my dog
