Veterinary Surgeon

Melania MRCVS

Melania has been practising in London since 2016 and is an integral part of our award winning London Vets Team!

Mel qualified in Italy in 2012 and decided upon pursing a role treating pets in London to enhance her excellent knowledge of both surgery and medicine.  Mel is currently furthering her surgical skill by undertaking an advanced certificate in small animal surgery which means she’s spending a lot of time in our busy operating theatre!  Still greatly enjoying the interaction with pets and their owners, Mel takes pride in managing complex cases and building excellent relationships with all our clients.

An immensely proficient small animal practitioner, Mel is confident in all routine soft tissue surgery, radiology and ultrasound.

Away from the surgeries and when she’s not studying for her further certificate qualification, Mel enjoys running a journal club where vets can discuss ideas and challenging cases!

Melania usually works from Monday to Saturday. Book your appointment to see wonderful Melania!

Ourania BBSc DVM MRCVS

Although qualifying as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2019, Veterinary Medicine is only one of 2 degrees held by our London Vet Team Surgeon, Ourania. Known affectionately as Rania to her colleagues and clients, Rania was welcomed into our London Team in early 2021 bringing with her some excellent soft tissue and first opinion internal medicine skills from her time at a busy hospital in the UK so far.

Having solid general practitioner skills in ultrasound, dentistry, internal medicine and surgery, Rania is an excellent addition to our popular surgery team for those first opinion cases when your pet is unwell or requires a health check with a friendly and experienced veterinary surgeon.

Since joining our London Vet Team Rania is keen to develop her Laparoscopic surgery skills at our flagship hospital.

Away from the surgeries Rania enjoys team building events, socialising, public speaking and volunteering for charities.
